Praise

Lord of the Flies is one of my favorite books. That was a big influence on me as a teenager, I still read it every couple of years.” 
—Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games

“As exciting, relevant, and thought-provoking now as it was when Golding published it in 1954.”
Stephen King

“The most influential novel…since Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye.” 
Time

“This brilliant work is a frightening parody on man’s return (in a few weeks) to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, 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
 
“Sparely and elegantly written…Lord of the Flies is a grim anti-pastoral in which adults are disguised as children who replicate the worst of their elders’ heritage of ignorance, violence, and warfare.” 
Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books
