The lord of the flies, which is by william golding, is truly my favorite book. It has an action packed story but also has great symbolism. I enjoyed reading it especially because of the drama. It made me cry at times. Anyways it has an amazing theme and a great story. I even wathced the video. But I would recommend you read the book before you watch the video. The bad thing about the video is, they made a ton of changes so the story is a little different. But the movie is a lot more touching since you can understand the peoples feelings better. Anyways, read this book, its amazing.
