NUMBER 6 !
Which means that I’ll be reading …….
The Lord of the Flies!!
I’m somewhat excited with this choice from my list. I read this book in high school and hated it, but since then, someone told me that Golding was responding to a prevalent philosophy at the time: that children were born good and innocent and it was only other people and life circumstances that ingrained evil tendencies within them. So he took some “innocent” children, put them on an island and …. well, those who have read it know what happens.
I’m also thrilled about the length ….. short. If I don’t finish it by June 1st one of you can give me a serious talking to. However, I’ve been spending alot of time dilly-dallying lately instead of getting things done so I’m not going to get too cocky.
Now I’m off to see which book the rest of you spinners “won”!
