Blogging Lord of the Flies

You might remember me as the person who blogged The Great Gatsby and hated every minute that Tom Buchanan SPENT sapping my lifeblood with his dumbness. Now that the people have spoken, I’m back with Lord of the Flies. But if anyone develops a car fetish this time around, I’m leaving.

Before we do anything else, I have a confession: I’m an English major who has never read Lord of the Flies. This is my shame. What I know about this book is that it involves a bunch of kids on an island and the collapse of society. So basically, it’s a light-hearted romp, yes? Let’s find out together!
