The Lord of the Flies

So I finished it. What a scary story. I read this in high school, but not since then. I didn't see the movie, but I bet it was really creepy. I can imagine this on film. The heat, the sweat. The cute little British boys turning into savages...And it was so easy, that slide into lawlessness. It's very disturbing.
But really, what did I think would happen when I reread this story? Would I suddenly understand why people would want to ban it? The fact that someone wanted to ban it, doesn't make it more than it is.
I'm not any smarter than I was before. Shoot.
