"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost"

Lord of the Flies - William Golding I read this book as a humorous tribute to my major in college - Interdisciplinary Studies. I got a few laughs when I told people about my plan.However, this book was worth more than just a joke.This book reflected the goods and evils of mankind, and how deep down we are all still savage, and without the guidance of elders, moral and rules, we are no more than the animals we hunt. Social and moral rule was torn down by the regression of the children, and since the world we now live in values youth over wisdom, we are all following the Lord of the Flies.If you did not read this in High School, I suggest you pick up a copy.
