Lord of the Flies by William Golding
As far as dystopian desert island novels go, Lord of the Flies is about as readable as it gets. It’s a relatively straightforward book about strife, savagery, and survival. Sometimes the language gets a bit abstract, sure, but the overarching themes are still super relatable. I mean, come on. We’ve all been there. We’ve all been nearly trampled to death at a Macy’s the day after Thanksgiving. We’re all familiar with the innate darkness that lives within the hearts of man.
