Evis Is One of Us

I have read the book “lord of the flies”. It is written by William Gerald Golding, an English schoolmaster. The book was published for the first time in 1954. The genre of the book is adventure; in this case the adventures of a group of children on an uninhabited island. The theme of this story is the battle between good and evil, situated as the battle within the hearts of people who become more powerful as civilization is gone.
The story is about a group of British boys between six and twelve years old. Because of the war, they were evacuated by plane and dropped on an uninhabited island. With no adult survivors, they created their own "micro-society". Ralph is elected "chief", and he had to organize shelter and fire. Jack, the head of the choir, has to take his boys hunting for food (wild pigs). A bitter rivalry develops between Jack and Ralph as both want to be in charge. The "hunters" became savages and primal under Jack's rule, while Ralph tried to keep his group civilized. The growing hostility between them leads to a bloody and frightening climax.

I liked this one because I found the fight of good and evil nicely described.

It was clear what the writer wanted to tell with this book.

Secondly, the writing style was good. There were no long sentences and there were just a couple of hard words I had   to look up in a dictionary. There were no flashbacks or flash forwards so it was not very hard to read. Likewise, because of the good writing style, you got a very good impression of the...
