William Golding
Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies is not for the faint of heart. A group of private school kids are stranded on an island after their plane crashes, killing the only adults onboard. What happens after is an examination of human nature and behavior. Leaders emerge and factions appear. War is made. Deep-hidden fears emerge. Without law enforcement, criminal behavior escalates to murder. What starts as a stranded group of civilized, educated boys, turns into a band of young savages.

Lord of the Flies brutally argues that a perfect society or utopia is impossible with imperfect man. It shows that no man or child is completely "civilized" and thus above savagery. Without strong and moral leaders, the worst behaviors and rebellions will appear. It is a relatively short book, but very intense and distubing.
