Book Review - Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Hands up if you read this for high school.

Before rereading it I remember the book being strange and funny. Something about a fat kid named Piggy getting picked on, a silly kid’s thing about a conch, and a pig on a head; just another “literary work” forced upon students to try and teach them a moral/political lesson. 1,322 more words
