Finished Another Book!

Lord of the Flies, by William Golding - I started reading this when I was a kid, but couldn't grasp it. I revisited it and was terrified, even though I knew what was coming. It read a lot like "There Will be Blood", where you know the menace is coming - even though it may be all the way at the end - but the slow boil is still riveting.

Same here. I read this as a teenager and did not see the big deal. I just read it last year and I was sort of blown away. And the reverse is also true, like I was blown away as a kid by Connecticut Yankee in KAC, but as an adult I didn't see the big deal. And same is true of Gilligan's Island, of course!
