Lord of flies de William Golding, des enfants qui se retrouvent sur une île déserte crée une société, qui se divise et s'entretue, sur fond de cannibalisme et ayant au final qu'une seule loi, celle du prédateur
Lord of the Flies by William Golding || ★★★★ - recommended for mature readers [Penguin Classics, Lord of the Flies, 0399501487, Piggy, Ralph, Jack, Roger, Samneric, The Littluns]
Lord of the Flies - William Golding, reading it now took me 39 years to want to read the classics:)
Lord of the Flies by William Golding: A plane carrying a group of British schoolboys and teachers crashes on a deserted island in the Pacific Ocean. No adults survive, leaving the boys to fend for themselves. At first they behave in an orderly fashion, using a democratic system to create a mini-society, but soon the island is thrown into disorder, as all sense of community unravels into a mess of petty rivalries and indifferent selfishness. An electrifying classic that still resonates today.
Lord of the Flies. One of my favorite books I read in high school.
This one is worth reading once a year.

Worth Reading, Seuss Book, The Lorax, Books Worth, Movie, Thelorax, Children S Books, Dr. Seuss, Kid
El Lorax / the Lorax - By Dr.Seuss. A greedy individual thoughtlessly pollutes the air, land, and water of the Bar-ba-loots' paradise in order to build his giant industry and the Lorax speaks for the trees. #TheLorax #Dr.Seuss #BooksWeLOve #ChildrensBooks #Kids
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss - teaches kids about caring for the environment and conservation of scarce resources
The Lorax. "Before "going green" was mainstream, Dr. Seuss warned against the dangers of not treating the environment with care and respect in his story, The Lorax. With the release of the blockbuster film version, the Lorax and his classic tale have educated a new generation of young readers about the importance of not only seeing the beauty in the world around us, but also about our responsibility to protect it."
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. I may have read this eleventy-billion times to my kids. :)
It may be Dr. Seuss but it's a great message worth reading to everyone.

Worth Reading, The Lord, Tolkien, J R R, Books Worth, Jrr, Movie, Favorite Books, Lord Of The Rings
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: FINISHED IT AFTER 3 ATTEMPTS! I thought it was very good. There are moments where I wanted to laugh at the corny lines, but the beauty outmatches those. Definitely read the book first, as I couldn't get into the first four "books", because I watched the movies first. Favorite chapter is Eowyn and Faramir's. SO ADORABLE!
The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3). I first read this trilogy when I was 18 and have re-read a gazillion times since. It is and always will be my favorite book of all time hands down. I love it's depth but what draws me back to it is the relationships between the characters.

Anne Rice is flawless! I have never read a book of hers that didn't have me forfeiting sleep, food, anything / everything to get through it. This story is riveting, deep and I can't wait to read the next one, as she explores the Werewolf legend through the modern story of a pack of wolves in California. LOVE
The wolf gift : a novel / Anne Rice / "When Reuben, otherwise known as Sunshine Boy, was sent to write a piece about the uncertain future of the giant house on the cliff, he wasn't expecting to warm so instantly to elegant heiress Marchent Nideck. Nor was he expecting to get caught up in a violent attack which will leave him changed in ways he could never have imagined."
The Wolf Gift: Anne Rice is very good at dark fantasy. I've read her books about vampires, witches, and demons. Werewolves for her seems a bit different. I wonder if she was inspired by her sister's book? The Wolf Gift seems like a modern take on werewolves. I want to see how she develops the story and plot.
I recently read Anne Rice's newest novel, The Wolf Gift. I was so glad to see her writing the way she used to in her eloquent dark Gothic style. She has always been my favorite author, namely the vampire chronicles. Her newest book is no exception to her past works, it was well written, engaging, kept you interested. She has managed to accomplish what she always has in past books, and that is to make you wish you were the creature she is writing about.
“Our way–the Western Way–has always been a "work in progress." Questions of life and death, good and evil, justice and tragedy–these are never definitively settled, but must be addressed again and again as personal and public worlds shift and change. We hold our morals to be absolutes, but the context of our actions and decisions is forever changing. We are not relativists because we seek to re-evaluate again and again our most crucial moral positions.” ― Anne Rice, The Wolf Gift
Anne Rice - The Wolf Gift Her newest Novel. I just got my copy and cant wait to read it!
Not a book worth reading. Was let down. However, I really enjoyed her other books.
The Wolf Gift - almost lost me in places but overall worth reading
