Lord of the Flies | Golding William
post image
Panpan

I really didn‘t enjoy Lord Of The Flies. In fact, I kind of resented it. Assigning it to school kids feels like force-feeding them a cautionary tale: “behave the way that the hypocritical adults tell you to, or look how you‘ll end up!”. Really, could it be any more patronising? Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/lord-of-the-flies-william-golding/ #SummerReading

CarolynM I had to read this at school. HATED it!!! 3w
keepingupwiththepenguins @CarolynM Hahaha I feel you! If I'd had to read it in school, I would've hated it too!! 3w

I didn‘t read nearly as much as I planned to this month but at least I checked these off my long term tbr. I‘m not sure if it was a coincidence or my subconscious at work but these authors were all part of the ‘Beat Generation‘. I feel a bit like I‘ve been living in an era just before I was born. #augustwrapup #summerreading #august #wrapup

George wakes up in an empty room and doesn't remember how he got there, he only got instructions to listen to.On his way, he meets people who, like him, have been abducted from the earth.
An interesting, tense well-written short sf story.

Scochrane26 There‘s several fall releases I can‘t wait for. I‘ve already pre-ordered The Art of Theft (lady Sherlock series) & Wayward Son (rainbow Rowell). (edited) 3mo
Butterflyamore @Scochrane26 I‘ll have to look those up. I haven‘t heard of them! I did preorder His Hideous Heart and I can barely wait for September to get here so I can have it in my possession! 3mo
Butterflyamore @Cortg Thank you! I got it for my birthday last year and I love it so much! 3mo
Butterflyamore @Alfoster It sounds sooooo amazing! I read the first page but have to hold off from going any further because I need to finish some of the others that I‘ve started. But I can tell that I really like her writing style! 3mo
