I read it in preparation as required reading for a course I'm going to teach. I'm glad to now know the story and to better understand what transpired on the island. It's not the kind of book I'd typically be drawn to but I get why it ended up in the canon. I appreciate that the writer also narrated but there were times he sounded utterly bored with his own story. I also grew quite annoyed at the overuse of the word 'ululation' in the last couple of chapters.
I hate to read
The story was very good. The recording sounded like it was done in a bathroom with an inexpensive microphone.
I think it's cool
I think this is an exceptional account of a dystopic society.
it is a good book. I love it but I didn't want to read it in the beginning=_= but it really is a good book.
Great book with mild description love it ! The story though old has great characters and many conflicts that make it more interesting as the boys grow and have to work together
Good light read - kept me wondering what would happen to them. Although nothing like the professional actors who read books now, I liked that the author was the reader because he put his intentions into the reading.
A whole lot of boring talk just for some mild excitement toward the end, with an unsatisfactory end. The reader sounded bored by his own story. The message of the story was interesting and the pig head part was the coolest, I suggest you read this on your own, not this audio made it hard to enjoy.
This book is good, but it is very slow moving and left unanswered questions through out the whole story. Sure its a great book, but in my opinion this book accomplished a two at the max.
