Sucks to you ass-mar!

Seriously though, I think this book gets a bit of a harsh rap because we were all forced to read it in high school. Not as bad without the aid of an insipid English teacher.

"March 20 "They walked along, two continents of experience and feeling, unable to communicate." “Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill! You knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you? Close, close, close! I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are what they are?” “Which is better--to have laws and agree, or to hunt and kill“ "The rules!" shouted Ralph, "you're breaking the rules!" "Who cares?” "maybe there is a beast." "What I mean is, maybe it's only us.”"

"I technically wasn't assigned this novel, but after hearing the reviews, I decided to take a look. It wasn't too bad, in terms of content, though seeing humans stripped down to their base instincts was quite frightening. It's too bad that throughout the entire thing, there was an overwhelming sense of "ENGLISH CLASS" that kept coming at me. "

"“His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. And in the middle of them, with filthy body, matted hair, and unwiped nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of mans heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” "

"It's a classic, I guess. Very exciting book with shocking things going on that let one think about the ways of life. It left a big impact on me and I really enjoyed reading it. I also like the huge amount of symbolism. Makes one ponder over several aspects even more."

"Erinomainen lukukokemus. Todella lyhyt, mutta sitäkin ikimuistoisempi matka ihmismielen eläimellisempään kääntöpuoleen. Kuten moni muukin kirja, myös Kärpästen herra alkaa rauhallisesti ja levollisin mielin, mutta loppua kohden meno muuttuu entistä raaemmaksi, ahdistavammaksi ja eläimellisemmäksi poikien villi-ihmisten persoonallisuuden päästessä valloilleen. Kirja onnistuu kiinnostamaaan, kauhistuttamaan ja jopa koskettamaan sillä tosiseikalla, miten ihminen voi rappeutua takai"

“Un libro che gioca abilmente sulla fragilità e la mutabilità del temibile animo umano, il cui feroce istinto primordiale finisce per prendere ineluttabilmente il sopravvento, soprattutto in situazioni in cui la cosiddetta "civiltà" artificiale costruita (e costituita!) dagli individui appare come un lontano, irraggiungibile miraggio. Anche nei bambini, stereotipo dell'innocenza per antonomasia, la fame di sopravvivenza e la conseguente crudeltà che ne deriva finiranno per essere il comune denominatore di ogni azione che prenderà corpo nell'isola. I rapporti, inizialmente ancora influenzati dalla cortesia e dalle buone maniere, finiranno per essere lacerati dal progressivo sopraggiungere di quell'istinto animale che riposa, in dosi diverse, un po' in ognuno di noi, mai completamente so” read more
