    "A historical piece about adding a spire to a cathedral. Of course there are obstacles and the story is mildly interesting, but I wouldn't call it incredibly interesting either. An interesting read with hints of religion, but it isn't earth shattering. "

    "Lord of the Flies likely comes to mind with any initial thought of best books by William Golding. Fire Down Below is the third volume of 'To the Ends of the Earth' which most people really believe should actually all be read as a single long book. While an interesting series his best is likely going to be other books and series. "

    "I picked up this book at a fair one day because it was old and looked interesting. It was very absorbing and entertaining for it being a historical fiction book. I was fascinated by the journey at sea and how the pen experienced peril and discovery and dealt with daily life aboard a ship. I would definitely read more from this author because he doesn't disappoint."

    "This is Golding's last, and perhaps best, book. I felt like I was transported back in time to the Greek era and got really consumed with the story. I would definitely recommend if you're a fan of Golding! "
