Lord of the Flies (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

Lord of the Flies - William Golding Sad - yes, disturbing- yes, example of wonderfully written classic literature - I hardly think so. I have been trying to read more classics and I continually find myself disappointed. This is no better. It was an average entertaining read about a bunch of young boys in a horrifying situation. It has good lessons to be learned regarding the viciousness of human behavior (that is if it were allowed to be read. It is banned/challenged in many places.)
