Lord of the Flies - William Golding just finished it... it was okay. not the worst thing i ever had to read for school. i understood the symbolism and everything, but it was a little too weird and disturbing for my taste. i couldn't stand most of the characters, but maybe that's what the author intended. the writing style was really good, except for that the characters continuously repeated themselves over and over again, which i guess was for emphasis, but it got a little annoying.
