Teaser Tuesday: Lord of the Flies by William Golding

       Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do the following:

 Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


       Currently I'm reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding. I thought I would give it a shot, since it's a classic, but I must say, I am not liking  it at all. Anyway, I feel like this is the dumbest book to do a Teaser Tuesday on, because I'm pretty sure everybody in the entire universe has read this at one point or another, but I haven't posted in a while, and this is all I can do at the moment so...

        Teaser #1: "Slowly the silence on the mountain top deepened till click of the fire and the soft hiss of roasting meat could be heard clearly." (Page 74)

      Teaser #2: "With the conch I'm calling a meeting even if we have to on into the dark. Down on the platform. When I blow it. Now." (Page 75) 

       I know, I know. Even I'm disappointed in these teasers, but to be fair, I'm not very far in the book. I'm really struggling with it, so right now, I'm hoping that it gets better. I mean I'm really, really hoping

  1. I had to read this for my 10th grade English class and I liked it... a little... eh who am i kidding, it was more meh than anything but there were a lot of great metaphors! They're kind of cliche metaphors but they make it interesting! I hope you like the rest of it :) You can make it through!

    1. This book took me forever to read. This book is full of metaphors, and some of them did make the book more interesting and add to the symbolism but I thought the metaphors were too frequent and it made the book very difficult for me to get through.

  2. Hey! Long time, no talk. I actually haven't read this book yet and surprisingly it was never required for me to read in school, but I have wanted to read more classics. Sorry its going slow at them moment. I hope it gets better! :)

    1. Hey! It has been a long time, hasn't it? I guess you and I are on the same page, wanting to read more of the classics. I'm almost finished! It did get a little better but I don't think i'll ever read it again. Oh well, I have it a shot. :)
