“Lord of the Flies”
By William Golding
William Golding received the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Booker Prize for Literature and he was even knighted in 1988. He is best known for his novel, Lord of the Flies, which continues to be one of the most challenged and controversial books of all time, despite the fact that it reaches the top of almost all best-loved and must-read literature lists. Lord of the Flies, which comments on the human tendency towards group thinking and the lines between peace and war, is challenging because it does so through the eyes of children. One of the most powerful and thought-provoking books of all time, Lord of the Flies is another absolute must, though not for the faint of heart.
