Staff Reviews


“I read this book as a member of the It’s the End of the World As We
Know It Book Club. We’re combining with the Required Reading Revisited
Book Club this month to discuss Lord of the Flies. So, I approached it
attempting to tease out the themes of the cataclysmic crash that
stranded the characters there, their attempts at survival, the
individuals and their personal vs. political persona’s, and how those
characters represent the different parts and view points of the society
they’re trying to rebuild. There’s also this great symbolic or
supernatural aspect of it with the ‘Lord of the Flies’ in the book.
There’s a lot to this small book. The thesis of the ITEOTWASKI Book Club
is to compare books to Stephen King’s The Stand and see how it holds up. This book holds up really well.”
