Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies - William Golding Lord of the Flies follows a group of boys as they go to the worst summer camp ever. There are no tents or cabins for them to sleep in, the food is terrible, and the staff seem to have left the boys completely to their own devices. Luckily, one of the campers is a homicidal maniac, and he begins hunting wild pigs that live in the forest around the camp, so they do not starve.Eventually, the camp counselors return, and boy are they upset when they see what the homicidal maniac has been up to in their absence -- killing all the unpopular, fat and nice boys. At the end of the story, the camp's insurers pull the camp's coverage, and it is forced to close down.
