If you enjoy literature for literature's sake, and do not mind forsaking a traditional plot, you must read this book. Golding presents a flow of conciousness masterpiece in Free Fall, examining the "shuffle, fold, and coil of time" on a quest to find the protagonists fall from freedom. the imagery is remarkable, and the obscurity is challenging but rewarding, as it is immensly constructive to the overall understanding of the piece. It is books like this, rather than the more obvious Lord of The Flies which won Mr. Golding a Nobel Prize in Literature. It is nothing short of thought provoking and conducive to self-examination, even if you hate it.
