A New and Unique Read
Reading a New and Different Book To What I’ve Read In the Past
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
In my life the books I’ve read have been by mostly the same author, but William Golding writes in different manner than any other author I’ve read. William Golding writes in a way where he can describe the scene in a way that is so new to me, and sometimes the reading can get a bit confusing. To better understand the reading I use litcharts before every chapter, and I believe it’s helping me a lot understand this book. Compared to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Lord of Flies is a much different read, but I can see many similar themes. Like the themes of Adventure or boyhood. I do think that The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was a much easier read even though it was written a century before. Now that I’ve read over half of the book, and I’m starting to see the true meaning of this book. I’m starting to see that the boy’s nature is starting to change for the worst, and their savage ness is starting to frighten me a bit. I feel as if Jack will do something to hurt the others, and I believe that he will become savage and try to kill someone to prove that he is superior to Ralph. To start the book I thought it was really confusing but good since instead of introducing the characters we were immediately dropped into the book with little information, and I found that very unique and different to every other book I’ve read.
