Here’s what we’re reading in June in the Boomerang Book Club: Lord of the Flies, William Golding. Penguin Books Reissue Edition, 2003. 224 pages.
Before The Hunger Games, there was Lord of the Flies. A group of schoolboys is stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. The lure of adventure free of adult supervision quickly gives way to fear as the boys start to turn on each other. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.
