To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Haunting, depressing, but skillfully written. Vivid descriptions of the island, the boys' characters and the way that they behave in a 'society' which gradually breaks down. Written following Golding's experiences in the Second World War and portrays the idea that the capacity for doing evil is innate within all of us. Almost unbearable tragedy, but compelling read.
I bought this for my sister who has just started reading this book for her GCSE English assignment. This book is very useful. The original text is as it is in the original novel and at the end of the text are very useful educational supplements such as common questions and chapter summaries.
Am doing this novel with my advanced English students in France. There are good simple summaries of each chapter and some interesting (if not highly original) discussion points at the end along with ideas for activities linked with each chapter.
