Lord of the Flies was part of the freshmen's summer reading (along with To Kill A Mockingbird), and they just finished reading and discussing both books-and are having a test on them maybe tomorrow if they have school. I said I was going to re-read Lord of the Flies, but I haven't had the time. I've been planning units and lessons.
That's cool. I've read To Kill A Mockingbird
as well. I flew right through Lord of the Flies
, so it might not take you that look to get through again. (Of course, that was right after I FINALLY finished Don Quixote
, so that might explain it.
) It was an interesting, kind of a disturbing look at human nature!
Dang it, The Odyssey
was out again! I got All the King's Men
instead. I saw, but didn't completely understand, most of the movie. The book is much better so far.
