BC: Honestly I Found this Book to be Quite interesting, the entire idea of boys being stranded on an Island and being driven crazy due to the shear fact they were alone was incredible, the entire Psychological perspective of this allows you to get a brief glimpse into the inner working of the human psyche and see how "primal man" is like aka "the Lord of the Flies" is what is burred deep within us all and has been tamed by Civilization I Would Highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good survival tale and wants to get even a small Glimpse into what a person's mind is like when they are converted down into a primal state.
