Book Review: Lord of the Flies

Allie at A Literary Odyssey has been busy lately.  She's read her third book for the challenge, LORD OF THE FLIES, by William Golding.  Allie didn't like much about this book but she did find that is related to LOST in a variety of ways:
  • The struggle between two leaders (Jack and Locke) that threatens to tear apart a group of survivors)
  • Being lost on and island and forced to survive
  • The savagery of certain individuals vs. those who want to survive and be rescued
  • The plans for eventual rescue by different individuals vs. the needs of the group to survive
  • The hunting of the wild boar
  • Violence between individuals in the groups
There is more, but those are the biggies.

Be sure to check out the complete review for details on why this book wasn't a big hit with Allie.
