Absolutely wonderful, the complete trilogy in one book, given as a present, and the reader finished it so quickly, brilliantly successful present.

Having ploughed through this large trilogy I would comment 1) lots and lots of detail about sailing ships, napoleonic sea warfare, the british navy in the early C19 and so on. Different names for front & back of ship, what different sails are called etc. Fine if you are interested, very dull if like me you have no interest in sailing matters. 2) Golding continues his exploration of confined societies, which mutate to form their own rules, how hardship affects people, how an early society, which has no words for difficult concepts like male rape, copes with the limitations of language and class. 3) As usual with Golding there is something missing - he seems completely out of touch with the feminine side of his own character, his characters often seem more like insects under a microscope rather than living beings.

It is huge! Difficult to carry...had I known I would have ordered the three separate books. I can use it as a reference book.
