Golding’s iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.
This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.

At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.


  • Unbelievable

    By Peacegirl_34
    The first half of the book was subtle, without a lot of dialogue. Then around chapter eight or nine stuff gets real and you FEEL the emotions of the characters. Amazing book.

  • LOTF

    By Laura .D
    My favorite book ever since I was 11 years old. I was a very advanced reader and my dad told me to read it for a project. The description was brilliant, the characters felt so real, and the emotion and sense of reality were beyond compare any other book. The ending will make you sweat, then cry. The symbolism is exceptional. This is a novel that you will never forget.
  • Pretty good
