“It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world. So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them.
And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation. So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.”
-Neil Gaiman’s NY2013 wish
Brineak ka ng girlfriend? Damdamin mo. Nadi-depress ka sa mga nakikita sa kalsada? Namnamin mo. H’wag kang umiwas sa emosyon. H’wag kang tumalikod sa dilim. Piliin mo ang malunod. Don’t play safe. Ang mahusay na manunulat ay laging nakatayo sa bungad ng bangin. Pag pinagmuntik-muntikanan ka nang mahulog, doon ka matututo.
“One of a kind, beautifully written novel, which some famous author has included on their list of top favorite books, such as Stephen King. It is something sort of extraordinary that will make you look back of your childhood manner.”
At first, I really have no idea what this book is all about and what story rests inside, though the title of it which is subtle. I was just intrigued for its being classic, as they claim it. That’s why I picked up this book. I found it hard to realize on the beginning in which there is no clear point or start. The boys simply fell into an uninhabited island wherein the story takes place.
After that, I was suddenly carried away by the story’s perfection as I read every bit of it. And then when there is such a surreal place where the great bonding happens as well as irksome antagonism. As long as you continued leafing through the pages, you will find out how enthralling and uniquely imagined this novel is. By the way, this classic novel was written by William Golding. He used a literary device or genre called “allegory”.
Mr. Golding knows well what boys are like, either ‘littleluns’ or grown-ups, as he mentioned in the book. Also the interpretation of different events that made the book page-turner and nevertheless its bloody-climax.
