My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Most people I know, seem to have read this book at school. I never did. Therefore I went out and bought it.
A group of schoolboys are marooned on a Pacific island. They try to form a society with schoolboy enthusiasm. They are aware of their predicament and everything seems sensible and sound. Gradually they descend into tribalism and become wicked and feudal with each other. A very clever story that caused me to reflect on what we are or can become. A tad scary might be putting it lightly. Well worth reading.
