Lord of the Flies
William Golding
Pg. 58

This is the second time I've read this book, and I still don't really get why this book is a classic. It's not that I don't like this book, it's just that I don't really get why teachers love it so much. I get that it's supposed to represent society or something like that, but I think it moves a little too slow. For some reason I just can't visualize anything in this book. It describes the island that it's set on and the characters in pretty good detail, but I still can't really see it. It kind of makes the book boring. I also really don't like any of the characters except for Piggy and Simon. Ralph annoys me and Jack is a little psychopath. I think I might like it more if it were updated. It's from 1954, and kids were a lot different then. I think it would be funny if it were set in this day and age, because kids are a little more helpless now, what with all the new technology we have.
