    1. 3.5 starsMy first encounter with Sir William Golding happened in some bookshops selling mostly new English paperbacks and some hardcovers half a century ago during my college years Not being aware of his fame nor having studied him in any English course, I casually browsed some of his titles reading a few paragraphs and left them on the shelf I usually thought I would never read him since his writing style and words in his narratives and dialogs were a bit hard to understand and so it was hopele [...]

    2. This is a mixed collection of essays and reviews written by Golding at various periods through his life They offer readers some insights into the man who wrote the novels set in every school syllabus, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature, and who was established in his lifetime as a Great Writer It s especially interesting to read these pieces in conjunction with his daughter Judy s tender memoir, The Children Of Lovers Golding does not always present a very appealing picture of himself, espec [...]

    3. I only intended to read th first essay but I couldn t put this collection down What chance has literature of competing with the defined categories of entertainment which are laid on for them at every hour of the day But just as bad money drives out good so inferior culture drives out superior With any capacity to make value judgments vitiated or underdeveloped, what mass future is there, then, for poetry, for belleslettres, for real fearlessness in the theatre, for the novel which tries to look [...]

    4. I couldn t put this book down It is a fabulous collection of essays and Golding is now one of my favourite authors Thee essays tell a lot about him as a person, and much of what he narrated helped me put Lord of the Flies into better perspective It s a must read for those who love travelling, reading and digging up the past literally.

    5. I wrote a review and emailed it to my cockmail, but thanks to school filters I cannot access it right now so I will add my review s here later One things for sure, I ve decided to give this collection of essays 4.78 5 stars for being excellent, the only reasons for my deductions are because there were one or two essays that were pretty pointless in the grand vision of all things But now I know about William Golding, the educated man, the typical, generous, normie, man, than I ever have before. [...]

    6. It is hard to make a random collection of musings interesting and I am afraid this one didn t quite do it for me Too many of the pieces landed clear purpose or were basically about travel I did enjoy one part where it went into some of his background thinking of Lord of the Flies which I had very much enjoyed reading and his motives behind it were undressing While I have heard it several times before I also enjoyed his thoughts on the devaluing of education into mere training The short story Bil [...]

    7. I have to admit that I m not a fan of random musings and essay collections They all feel like strained anecdotes that aren t that interesting This is mostly the same sadly I love Golding but this was a tough read I liked the chapter where he discussed Lord of the Flies and he had the story of 300 Leonardis in the title storybut not much else There was a tale of crossing the Channel and a few other bits and bobs that were far too long I don t think I will bother with any of these as it s not my b [...]

    8. Enjoyed the People and Places and Books especially On the Crest of the Wave sections better than Westward Look and Caught in a Bush.
