I'll be honest, I'd never been told anything about the book before I read it, so after the first couple pages I fully expected Piggy to pull a The Dog Bites Back and kill the other boys with a giant fly monster. I was severely disappointed in that regard. However, I did enjoy the book as a whole. The way their society breaks apart is believable, and Jack is just...wow, how he fell. Since I think very literally, I didn't catch the symbolism as easily as others (Yes, including the scene with the pig. Didn't think anything of it.), so I think I'm going to read it through again to see if I can catch it this time. In other words, good book, but poor Piggy.
