Ce Sophy in sexual tyranny As Golding weaves their destinies together as he draws them toward a final conflagration his book lights up both the inner and outer darknesses of our time. I recently read Lord of the Flies and then happened upon this lesser known book by William Golding I am a slow reader but I read this novel surprisingly uickly and was drawn in and eventually absorbed by the characters their inner dialogues and their private universes Matty the Anti HeroMartyr represents many things for me a prophet in the wilderness a shaman a clown whom I would not consider to be evil; he is not vengeful violent nor is he vindictive And yet in his silence he can be frightening; he commits a grievous deed for which he turns to the Bible and then to spiritsspiritual guides in a uest for redemption There is a dreamy surreal aspect to the prose that occasionally left me confused as to the exact nature of whatever reality was being described at a particular moment; for example near the end of the book is Sophy one of two evil twins actually brutalizing the young boy that has been kidnapped for her or only suffering from criminal delusions of grandeur Is she merely imagining this violence I am impressed with the way Golding develops both the inner and outer lives of the two little girls Sophy and Toni who start out innocently enough as children Sophy and Toni grow up in an emotional vacuum nursing dangerous fantasies as a result of their father's neglect Nevertheless in the end both girls make their choices about the type of individuals they want to be Certainly the traumatic childhoods of Sophy and Toni contribute to their respective downward spirals into delinuency And yet others who in real life come from scarier circumstances than these two little girls can go on to accomplishment achievement and greatness in their adult lives Sophy and Toni are both very bright girls; at least metaphorically the twins resemble Regan and Goneril from Shakespeare's King Lear minus Cordelia Matty chooses his destiny as well; the difference being that I can sympathize with Matty as he and his life has been so literally scarred from the beginning Like uasimodo the archetypal ugly monster often has the biggest heart Matty's deformity also makes him stronger than either Sophy or Toni; he is resiliently independent from a very young age And as reclusive and mysterious as Matty is I believe him to be compassionate After reading this book which contains some Dickensian aspects particularly the character of Mr Pedigree in my understanding of the term I can see why Golding became a Nobel laureate Not only by means of his intellectual and creative gifts but also via the empathy and understanding he shows for his characters All of which Golding is able to elucidate in a prose that is often poetic and explicit when necessary surely this was much easier to do in 1979 when this book was published then it would have been in 1954 when Lord of the Flies was published I am looking forward to reading Golding's second novel The Inheritors There is a lot to be learned from this multi faceted writer

I love Golding's view of the world This continues where Lord of the Flies left off; that human nature is inherently savage That is the world isn't needed to corrupt a child we all accomplish that just fine on our own Bleak but intriguing This book was also clever and suspenseful so than LotF excellent read
