"Lord of the Flies" is a classic. Most people have read or will read it in an English class at some point, because it is full of symbolism and excellent for writing essays about. That does not, however, mean that one should mistake it for a good book. "Lord of the Flies" is not a good book, as everything in it, from its characters to its plot to the writing itself, is pedantic and uninteresting throughout.
