S: Lord of the Flies
BC: Opinion: Lord of the Flies is a book i'd reccomend to everyone. I reccomend this book because I believe this story is a entertaining novel but also delivers valuable lessons. Another reason, the book shows that people can easily resort to a savage state when the oppurtunities arise. Also, the story keeps you in suspense for what is going to happen next.
