Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I will freely admit that the only reason I picked up this book was because it was one of those books that I "should have read" (and it was easily accessible on Terry's bookshelf). I am learning more and more that that is the worst possible reason to read anything. This one is such a boy book. It is no mystery to me why every girl who saw me reading it winced when they recognized the cover.


  1. I hear you on the "should have read" thing. There are so many half-finished classics that I just couldn't care enough to finish, even if I could be like "yeah, I've read ___"

  2. I had to read that book soph. year in high school....HATED it. You get so pulled into the story then, before you know it the guys go all savage and gross. I agree-definite boy book.
