    more from this reviewer

    Quite different, very interesting!

    "...It seemed to end a little abruptly; I felt like I was just beginning to get to know the humans, and would have liked to know more about them, if not in further chapters, then perhaps in a sequel. Most people are probably only familiar with an earlier novel of Golding's, Lord of the Flies, since it seems to be a required reading staple in high schools across the country. I really enjoyed reading that one when I took senior English, and I'm not sure now why it took me so long to read something else of his. I definitely recommend this for something a little out of the ordinary on your reading list, especially since this is Golding's favorite of all his own work."

    Don't Recommend

    This book is very hard to read and very confusing. I bought it for my son's project at school.

    Not as hard as many say

    I am 13 and I read this book. At the begaining it is a little confusing, but after that it is pretty easy to under stand.

    More Than a Masterly Sojourn to Prehistory

    A true deserving Nobel Prize winner, this is perhaps Sir Golding's most compact book, best written and easiest to read. Just this last action, is an authentic pleasure. Great mastership is achieved in softly portraying the somberest side of life, but it is the simple tragedy of living under harsh conditions what gives beauty to the tale of the noble homo neanderthalensis. A great feat of the literature of human darkness, as many wrongly say, when this is literature's shinest...

    Very Confusing

    Read this my freshman year of High school and proceed to get lost from the start. It is probably a very good book, but being I was only 14 reading it, I might not have fully comprehended it. So having that bad experience I never wanted to read it again

    A Triumph of Style and Content

    Written from the head-space of the central characters, this book is economical in a way that makes it a unique read. I was deeply moved by the story and richly rewarded by its subtle craftsmanship.

    Golding considered this his greatest. Critics agree!

    Inspired by the author's archeological dig in Iraq where he found remains of an ancient cripple who lived to a late age, this book must be read differently from any other book. Experience Golding!

    The Inheritors is a mediocre book

    The Inheritors is a pretty interesting book, but the author tells the story in the eyes of the Neanderthals, so it is a bit difficult to comprehend.
