Someone woke up on the wrong side of England.

Is there another classic allegorical?  Was Lord of the Flies supposed to represent something?

i don’t know if you were actually looking for an answer, but i don’t think lord of the flies was really supposed to represent anything, it was just that everyone was writing stories about english boys being such angelic creatures that golding just had to say “have you met a 10 year old boy??” and wrote lotf to rectify it. although you can see it in an allegorical way. there is a lot to be said about the ending in my opinion!

Huh, no I was just honestly wondering, because all I knew about the story was that it was a prototype Hunger Games.  I guess it could be an allegory for...angelic democracies failing to get along in the League of Nations?

Just like the siege in WSD is actually just an allegory for Redwall.

Before I tried to play Yu gi Oh, but it was too complicated, so I left it XD   :blackberry2

What I do like a lot are his series, especially the first with the pharaoh. Their fights are quite intense and dramatic, I really like how they unfold.
I recently saw the last series that deals with the Cyberspace, just like the others, the duels are so dramatic and intense that I can't help but get excited!   :fiver

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)
