AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
I GUESS SO. IT ENTERTAINED ME. BUT I THINK IT IS A BOOK FOR BOYS.
OK I GUESS HE DOES NOT HAVE THE GREATEST NARRATING VOICE.
I DID LIKE THE AUTHOR'S COMMENTS AT THE END OF THE BOOK AS IT IS INTERESTING TO HEAR WHAT THE AUTHOR HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS/HER CREATION.
This book is a classic. As a child, like most boys, I sometimes wondered about life on a deserted island. The adventures would be awesome! I think those daydreams were closer to "The Wonderful World of Disney" daydreams. This book is probably much closer to the reality of being stranded on an island. Its a good book and worth your time to listen to it. The author narrates this book and he really should stick to writing and leave narration to others, but he does okay. It takes a little to get past this, so stick with him and give it a listen.
man kind natural animal
it made me think about our human instincts
The style performance of this audio book and the narrator were the best things.
The most interesting aspect of the story is the circumstances on which it happens, the scenario on which the book starts.
The book was enjoyable, however I normally listen to sci-fi fantasy without the push school I would not have read this book.
I also noticed while listening to this book that the author would occasionally paraphrase the book.
Lord of the Flies is a timeless story. A story that should be read in middle school or high school.
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.
Say something about yourself!
I wont be finishing this book. I can set through bad narration but the production value was terrible too. All of the sniffles are there along with some insert edits that sound like they were done months later. In some cases mid-sentence single word edits are like nails on a chalkboard.
The introduction is invaluable. The book is read by the author, William Golding. After listening to this recording, a teenager will be able to understand what Golding was trying to say, and why he said it. Some children may enjoy having the story read to them more than they would enjoy reading it themselves. Most children will benefit by doing both activities.
No offense to the author who reads this, but he is somewhat elderly to the point where it feels like a lecture and one has a hard time listening intently. It's very monotone, slow, not pronounced clearly. Couldn't stand even 30 minutes before canning this book. Great story, but terrible naration. Nice intro by the author, but that's the only worth you get for your money.
