Le emozioni, in questo romanzo, ci sono tutte. Poi ci sono coraggio, dolore e piacere. La protagonista è l'ombra. L'ombra da cui ognuno di noi cerca di fuggire, ma che poi ci prende. Ma cosa fare quando la tua parte nascosta finisce dentro il corpo della persona che ami? Forse, non resta che mollare le cime dal pontile e salpare verso la follia. E qual è la follia? Quella di ritrovarsi all'Inferno senza aver peccato? Oppure affidarsi a un sistema non strutturato per la presa in cura, che si affida alla tecnica, che non approfondisce e non si pone troppe domande? In questo romanzo il tempo sembra scandire la vita, ma il tempo qui non c'è. La vita ha un sapore magico e nella vita c'è qualcosa di più forte di tutte le emozioni e di tutti i sistemi, un amore, qualcosa che va contro la morte. Qualcosa che non muore.

Kids are evil. Don't you know? I've just finished rereading this book for my book club but, to be honest, I've liked it ever since my class were made to read it in high school. Overall, Lord of the Flies doesn't seem to be very popular, but I've always liked the almost Hobbesian look at the state of Leggi tutto
I read this book a long time ago, long enough to where I barely remembered anything past the basic premise. So I picked it up again, only to wish I hadn't. There's a reason why they teach this book in middle school--in order to enjoy this book, one's intellectual cognizance must be that of a child,
This book is horrifying. I'm scared like hell. Totally. I was expecting an adventure book telling about some children who got stranded in an island, but ended up with goosebumps. A bit of synopsis: A number of English school boys suffered from a plane accident causing them to get stranded in an uninhi Leggi tutto
Lord of the Flies is one of the most disturbing books I've ever read. It was required high school reading and since then, I've read it four more times. It is as disturbing now as it was then. Using a group of innocent schoolboys stranded on an island, the author very realistically portrays human beh Leggi tutto
“We did everything adults would do. What went wrong?” For me, this quote sums up the entire book. It’s a powerful exploration of humanity and the wrongness of our society and it also demonstrates the hypocrisy of war. Adults judge the behaviour of children, but are they really any better?

Edit: A friend send me this article of a real situation where a group of kids were left stranded on an island for 15 months.

A hard book to rate as although its well written and is very thought provoking, the content gets unpleasantly graphic and some aspects are awkwardly dated (eg the assumption the British boys should be jolly good chaps - “we’re not savages, we’re English”). Plot It starts off as a conventional adventur Leggi tutto
"We did everything adults would do. What went wrong?" You did everything adults would do. That's what went wrong. There is much to be said against this novel, and it has been said, eloquently, poignantly, many times. Let me make a case for keeping it on the curriculum despite the dated language, the Leggi tutto
