5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful / repugnant, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rites of Passage (Sea Trilogy) (Paperback)
Golding continues to appal me and yet I keep coming back for more.

This is a beautiful book. The structure, pace and characters are all perfect. Golding continues to chip away at the darknesses at the centre of us all, and the themes here are shocking. It is very difficult to describe the story without giving it away, so surfice it to say that this is a maritime tale without heroism. It is a story set during war, but without battle scenes or violence. Golding has written an immensely enjoyable (and repugnant) character piece where the conflicts are exclusively internal.

If you read this you'll hate it or love it. Perhaps both at the same time.
