Om författaren

William Golding was born in Cornwall, England on September 19, 1911. Although educated to be a scientist at the request of his father, he developed an interest in literature.

He eventually became a schoolmaster at Bishop Wordsworth's School in Salisbury. During World War II, he joined the Royal Navy and was involved in the sinking of the German battleship Bismarck. After the war, he returned to Bishop Wordsworth's School and taught there until 1962. His first novel, Lord of the Flies, was published in 1954 and was made into a film in 1963.

Man fattar ganska så snabbt varför denna blivit en klassiker. Mycket bra och engagerande berättelse.

Mycket långsammare än jag mindes den. Jag blir irriterad på all "runtombeskrivning", som inte känns relevant. Kanske Golding här representerar det gamla gardet?
Annars är det ju en ganska fascinerande historia som nästa omärkligt går över från att vara nästan idyllisk till att bli ganska hemsk. Men egentligen inte så jättefarligt upprörande. Fast den borde vara det.
