Boekbeschrijving

When a plane crashes on a remote island, a small group of schoolboys are the sole survivors. From the prophetic Simon and virtuous Ralph to the lovable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the boys attempts to establish control as the reality- and brutal savagery-of their situation sets in.

A teacher himself, Golding clearly understood how to interest children with a gripping story and strong, sympathetic characters. The novel serves as a catalyst for thought-provoking discussion and analysis of universal issues, not only concerning the capabilities of humans for good and evil and the fragility of moral inhibition, but beyond.

De tekst hieronder is vertaald vanuit de Engelse product beschrijving

Wanneer een vliegtuig neerstort op een afgelegen eiland, zijn de enige overlevende een groep schooljongens. Van de profetische Simon en de virtuoze Ralph tot de aandoenlijke Piggy en de brute Jack: ze proberen allemaal orde te scheppen terwijl de realiteit - en de onvergeeflijke wildernis - bij hen binnenkomt.

Golding, zelf docent, begreep duidelijk hoe je kinderen kunt grijpen met een goed verhaal en sterke, sympathieke personages. De roman dient als katalysator van diepzinnige discussies en analyses van algemene zaken die niet alleen te maken hebben met waar mensen toe in staat zijn wat betreft goed en kwaad, of de broosheid van morele beperkingen, maar daar voorbij.
