Lord of the Flies - William Golding - A Short Summary & Reviews

A short summary of Lord of the Flies:

The destruction of civilization and childhood on a deserted island.

My favorite William Golding quote from the book:

"The greatest ideas are the simplest."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Is it human nature to compete?

Are we really just animals?

My review of the Lord of the Flies:

Rite of passage.

Teenagers are scary.

It is our civility that keeps us human.
