Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

At once an enthralling adventure story about a group of schoolboys stranded on an island and a richly textured moral tale, this is also Golding's attack on Western society and its institutions.

Format: Paperback
Few students in America can get out of high school without having to read Lord Of The Flies in English class sometime during the four years that they are there. The story is fairly easy to understand on a superficial level, but the real purpose of this novel is to understand symbolism and foreshadowing. Items in the novel like Piggy's glasses and the conch shell have a "deeper" meaning that may not be obvious to every reader. If the reader is keen, he'll be able to realize that the author tells the reader what is going to happen in a subliminal way prior to actually coming out and saying it. That's called foreshadowing, and it may also be difficult for some readers to comprehend. For these reasons, these Cliffs Notes are extremely useful. The reader will gain a better understanding and appreciation of the novel by using this supplement while reading the actual novel. With these notes, the reader is given the added benefit of reading commentary written by someone who has already read the book, and is capable of breaking down the significant parts of every chapter.
One drawback to having these notes (as is the drawback to having ANY Cliffs Notes) is the temptation to substitute the notes for the actual novel. While this substitution may work for other novels, it isn't a good idea to think it unnecessary to read the book just because you've read the notes. I tried that, and it didn't work. Besides, the Cliffs Notes are just about as long as the actual book, so you might as well read the real thing.
The bottom line is that these notes are a good investment if you want to gain a good understand of the novel, and insight into what your English teacher might think is important. I recommend these notes.

I find that this little book of notes is an excellent teaching resource. It is also excellent for students, and is helpful in understanding the novel which is complex. This book is easy to navigate, and is one of the best I have seen as it covers every aspect of the novel. I use this book every literature class with my students.

As I was reading the novel i understood the story, but did not understand the symbolism contained in Golding's work. The Cliff Notes explain the imagery through character analysis and comments on each chapter making the novel very understandable. It was very interesting in how the book pulled together showing a parallel of modern society, not just an adventure story of boys on an island, that Golding so ingeniously created.

Very valuable little aid. I would have missed much of this classic if I had not had the explanations and perspective it provided.

Read: 8/13
Rate: 4/5

8/13: CliffsNotes: Lord of the Flies got me through the dreadful bore of a novel, understanding it a bit better. However, the summary of each chapter was too brief, and the author went forever in the analysis. For whatever it was worth, CliffsNotes: Lord of the Flies was a good idea.
