L'histoire de départ, on l'a vu/lu des milliers de fois. Un groupe d'enfants et d'ados se retrouve isolé sur une île déserte. Mais tout l'intérêt du livre porte sur la suite, où ils doivent prendre des décisions pour survivre, s'organiser, où les personnalités leaders vont se révéler et les conflits se développer.
Ce livre est fascinant car il dépeint les comportements des adultes au travers d'enfants et d'ados et c'est en ça qu'il devient percutant. Car ces comportements que l'on trouve choquants chez des jeunes, nous avons les mêmes en tant qu'adulte...
Et du coup, cela fait beaucoup réfléchir...
Un chef d’œuvre en une centaine de pages.

C'est avec les mots les plus simples qu'on a parfois le plus d'impact.
La langue simple de Golding fait mouche (sans faire de mauvais jeu de mots) et transmet bien plus efficacement qu'un long discours l'atmosphère et le message dérangeant de ce roman.
Où l'on voit que l'homme revenu à l'état de nature tombe plus bas que n'importe lequel des animaux à travers l'histoire de ces enfants, image de "l'innocence" (rions) échoués seuls sur une ile déserte sans adulte.
Un roman aux multiples facettes, un indispensable dans toute bibliothèque.

This book arrived in good condition and as shown in the photo. Shipping was on time. Not my favourite classic, but I would recommend it.

I bought this book after seeing many positive reviews about it on the internet, and I was fascinated with its quality!
It is incredibly well written and it explores mankind's instincts very deeply, it definitely makes you think and evaluate how deep can we actually go.
The original version in English is not very complicated for someone whose English is not his mother tonge.
Read and enjoy it!

Ever fantasize that you are on an island free from the restraints of society? William Golding has taken that scenario to the nth in this story of a bunch of English boys, plane wrecked on an island during WWII.

We see the fabric of society slowly and most assuredly ripping as the rules are discarded one by one. Golding is very graphic in his description of the demise of pigs and plants.

One will never look at fun and games in the same way.

… was one of the battle cries of the ‘60’s, when I first read this work, probably as a school assignment. Back then, a certain segment of youth was enamored with the idea that the purity of their idealism would correct many, if not all the world’s ills, caused primarily by corrupt adults. It was one more version of “building the new Soviet man.” At times, I shared those sentiments. A decade earlier, William Golding wrote this novel that didn’t see it that way. No surprise, I suppose, if one had only thought about it “logically.” The corruption of all too many over 30 was simply part of the aging process, since they were corrupt under 30… as many of that youthful counterculture leadership would prove to be.

William Golding would win the Nobel Prize for Literature primarily due to this work, which was originally published in 1954. So often Introductions detract from the main work. Not so in this case. Stephen King has written one of the most memorable ones. It is brief, and describes his childhood reading in Maine. He had read many of the standard “uplifting” books for the young, like the “Hardy Boys.” Eventually he realized that real kids don’t act the way they are depicted in these uplifting tales. He wanted to read a realistic account of what kids do. When the library Bookmobile came to town, he asked the librarian. She pulled this book out of the adult section, with the admonition that he should never tell the source; he had simply found it on his own.

British school boys – and it is only boys – crash in an airplane on a deserted island. The adults are killed, only the school boys remain. They commence to organize themselves. They use a simple conch as a symbol of authority. They hold an election as to who should be a leader. They determine they really are on an island, and realize they must generate smoke in order to attract the attention of any ship that may be passing, in order to be rescued. That’s the rational action part.

Golding was a school teacher when he wrote this novel, so he knew all too well the cliques that kids will form, the bullying of the weaker and the outliers, and yes, the just plain nastiness of kids, some of whom would one day point a presumptive finger at their elders. The “good” kid, the one the reader would like to identify with, is Ralph. But right from the beginning, Golding shows his “feet of clay.” It is a painful re-read at times. Who does not remember the “not cool” overweight kid, who might be asthmatic, with thick glasses? Who would be this kid’s friend? In Golding’s novel, this kid reveals to Ralph that his name in school was “piggy,” and begs him not to tell the others. Ralph does, in a senseless act of cruelty.

And it is downhill from there. Two main factions develop. Fears of the unknown haunt the dreams and the waking periods of the youths. A faction of the school boys evolve to be the hunters, in search of the meat of pigs. Satiating natural hunger degenerates in savagery and blood lust… and the killing of their own kind. It is in our genes is what Golding was saying, as I also saw confirmed in the ‘60’s.

Golding’s work is still apparently a school assignment, based on the number of reviews (including the silly 1-stars). It remains a very well-written “action tale” with a strong moral message about our essential genes that quietly rebuke those “new age” aspirations. I found it better, and definitely more understandable the second time around. 5-stars.

Lord of the Flies est un livre génial qui brise le fantasme Jules Vernien de l'île et qui apporte une analyse intéressante des relations sociales et de leur dégénerescence vers la guerre. Je recommande fortement l'ouvrage et l'achat de cet ouvrage dans une version d'occasion: pas de gâchi, belle couverture désuette, l'odeur du papier jauni, le prix.

Curieux que j'aie attendu d'avoir presque 50 ans pour découvrir ce chef d'oeuvre. Il devrait être au programme de tous les Lycées. Une descente dans l'obscutrité de l'âme humaine baignée par le soleil irréel d'une île déserte livrée à des enfants survivants d'un crash aérien. Magnifique et angoissant.
