TT#8 Lord of the Flies

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page

  • Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • My teaser this week is from Lord of the Flies by William Golding. A group of little boys are stranded on an island. At first, they seem excited about living on their own and being rescued. Soon as they lose touch with the real world, they lose hope, begin to show their weaknesses and descend into a pre-civilized behaviour, the kind that turns them from little innocent children into savage adults.

    “They’re all dead,” said Piggy, “an’ this is an island. Nobody don’t know we’re here. Your dad don’t know, nobody don’t know–“

    His lips quivered and the spectacles were dimmed with mist.

    “We may stay here till we die.”

    2. This is a book I thought I would like but was disappointed in it. It was just so depressing.

    3. Can't say I have read this. It's one of those books that I feel like I already know the story so I don't need to read the book.

      My teaser this week comes from one of my favourite authors!

    4. I have actually never read this book. I know it's a classic, but everyone always says how grim it is. Probably worth it, though. Thanks for the teaser. If you get a chance, mine is here.

    8. @Karen And Gerard – It's the other way round for me. I thought I wouldn't like it. It is a bit depressing, but I did like it!
      @Marg – Yea, the story is sort of predictable, but it is nicely written!
      @Julie @ Read Handed – It is grim-ish(!), but it's nice and short and very well written! You should read it 🙂
      @Diannehartsock – I am going to have to see the movie, now that I have read it!
      @Kristyn – Thanks, and thanks for stopping by!
