WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE
At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything.
But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins in reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued…
“Brilliant…a frightening parody on a man’s return [in a few weeks] to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to secceed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. ‘Lord of the Flies’ does. It must also be superbly written. It is.” – The New York Times Book Review.
“The most influential novel…since Salinger’s ‘The Catcher in the Rue’.” – Time.
