Description

Get ready for an adventure tale in its purest form, a thrilling and elegantly told account of a group of British schoolboys marooned on a tropical island. Alone in a world of uncharted possibilities, devoid of adult supervision or rules, the boys begin to forge their own society, their own rules, their own rituals. With this seemingly romantic premise, and through the seemingly innocent acts of children, Golding exposes the duality of human nature itself: the dark, eternal divide between order and chaos, intellect and instinct, structure and savagery.

Critiques

" Lord of the Flies gives the reader a lucid and chillingly objective mirror to our modern society. William Golding's narration is as impartial as his work, yet his grumbly, grandfatherly voice, complete with mid-sentence sniffs and swallows, is intimate." ( AudioFile)

Great story - bad narration

I love this tale. Read it years ago and so looked forward to hearing it. However, the author should NOT have read this book. Had some difficulties with his lack of expressions. Quality of sound improved a little after chapter 5. I hope that some day it is re-done with a different narrator (unabridged of course!).

Classic story

I had to to read this book in school, and found it amazing. it brought back fond memories.
It is refreshing to hear the author reading his own story.
What a fascinating book and I say this book should be put in the schools for the kids of today and the future to enjoy.

Fantastic

I read this book as a child, but I didn't feel the same about it as I do now. I is really compelling and the picture it paints of society is still true today. I have found myself over and over again thinking of this book and how society behaves, it is so poignant. That is why this book is a classic and should be read by everyone.

writing - A+, narration - C

My first "read" of this book is in listening to this audio version. Although the writing is good, frankly, the narrator's voice lulls me to sleep. He sounds like he has marbles in his mouth much of the time. I respect the author highly, but not as a narrator. I am struggling to pay attention, wading through this classic.

Excellent Purchase

This classic is read by none better than its author and Golding's brief explanation of how this novel came into being and his defense against critics who call him a sexist are brilliant! Bravo!!

Schade - Klassiker aber sehr schlecht gelesen

Habe leider nicht lange genug zugehört, um zu merken wie schlecht William Golding sein Buch vorliest. Ich habe mich dann doch durchgequält, kann aber nur von dem Kauf dieses Audiobooks abraten. Gibt es keine bessere Version? Wenn nicht, dann lieber Buch kaufen und selber lesen.

Autor vergeigt Klassikerlesung

Diesen Klassiker hätte ich gerne als Hörbuch in meiner Sammlung, ich konnte mich aber bisher einfach nicht durchringen diese vergurkte Lesung zu kaufen. Nach etwas längerem Probehören, als es hier bei Audible möglich ist, bestätigte sich mal wieder, das großartige Autoren nicht zwangsläufig gute Vorleser sein müssen.

Golding liest, als hätte er zur Aufnahme sein Buch zum erstem Mal seit 50 Jahren wieder in die Hand genommen. Deutlich hörbar sind auch die Stellen, die nochmals aufgezeichnet werden mussten, weil Golding sich beim ersten Lesen offensichtlich verhaspelt hatte. Die ganze Aufnahme klingt nicht wie im Studio sondern in irgendeinem Wohnzimmer aufgenommen, zudem schwankt die Lautstärke stark.
Das Buch hat diese Lesung nicht verdient!
