Lord of the Flies.....the coolest book I've read yet!

Also I've read National Velvet (1962 version I think, I really prefer the "old" speak, because the modern versions SUCK)......about 28 times I think?
I love the book so much...it's basically what happened to me, except in my life nobody commits suicide, I don't get 5 horses (only 1), and I'm not in the Grand National! I love love love love love the book so much, but Enid Bagnold has a terrible writing style. For example, the book is about VELVET BROWN. A girl. But randomly there will be a page of complete nonsense, having absolutely nothing to do with that.....there might be 2 paragraphs full of what her mother was thinking at that time, and how she was muscle-bound, and how her mother blah blah blah blah blah. Enid probably realized she had the power of description, and rambled off in her excitement at being able to write about it.....
