    "Lord of the Flies isn't what I would personally say is a horror book. I understand why it's categorized in that way but there are many, many other books that deserve the ranking before Lord of the Flies. "

    "This book was purely entertaining. An absolute page-turner. I read the whole thing in one stretch and it was nearly responsible for me missing a flight as I sat in the lounge saying "I'll walk to my gate once I finish ONE more chapter." If you've seen the Will Smith movie, you get the general gist. But a single-character story is much better suited to book-form where you can more easily access the thoughts and emotions of that character. While it has action, unlike the movie, it isn't really an action-based story"
