One of her six best books, as told to the Daily Express:
Lord Of The Flies by William GoldingRead about another book on the list.
I quote from this time and again. It was required reading at school; we did a big project and it stuck in my brain. It taught me that we are what we are – bully, leader, follower. I believe our personalities are stamped on us from the day we are born and this book proved it for me.
Lord of the Flies is on AbeBooks' list of 20 books of shattered childhoods and is one of the top ten works of literature according to Stephen King. It appears on John Mullan's lists of ten of the best pigs in literature, ten of the best pairs of glasses in literature, and ten of the best horrid children in literature, Katharine Quarmby's top ten list of disability stories, and William Skidelsky's list of ten of the best accounts of being marooned in literature. It is a book that made a difference to Isla Fisher.
