I had read Lord of the Flies while at my aunt's beach house about two years ago and didn't like it very much--probably because I was ill and had no one with which to discuss the book. Just recently, I read Lord of the Flies in my Survey of World Literature class. With being older and having detailed discussions of the many symbols the book contained, I ended up loving it.
I have a few thoughts for fanfiction in the future, so be ready for that. They will probably end up consisting of smut, so sorry if that's not your cup of tea, but don't say I didn't warn you. :3
