    1. Şimdi aslında ben böyle romanları sevmem. Bir çocuk var, ergen. Lise sonda okuyor. Doğal olarak kız peşinde. Şimdi buraya kadar bile biri bana söylemiş olsa, bu kitabı okumazdım. Bunu yazanında Tuna Kiremitçi falan olduğunu düşünürdüm. En azından aklıma William Golding hiç gelmezdi.Ama işte millet yazdığında berbat bir kitap haline dönüşen bu liseli ergen genç hikayesi, Golding'in elinde çok güzel bir kitaba dönüşmüş. Usta ellerde bir şahesere dönüşmemi [...]


    2. 'I did not deceive myself into believing that I was good looking, but I had heard that girls were relatively indifferent to that. I hoped they were; for as I inspected my face in the mirror, I came to the regretful conclusion that it was not the sort of face I should fall in love with myself. There was nothing fragile about it. I tried smiling winningly at myself, but the result made me grimace with disgust.'I didn't expect this book to make me cry. So much of it is written with an exceptionally [...]


    3. -31-الحمد لله رب كل شيء، إِنَّمَا أَشْكُو بَثِّي وَحُزْنِي إِلَى اللَّهِ وَأَعْلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ [يوسف: 86]، كنت في حالٍ سيئة، أركب الأيام علني أصل قبل المغيب، في الظلام لن أرى شيئًا، قال أبو العلاء: "ألا إنما الأيّامُ أبْناءُ واحِد = وهَذي الليالي كلّها أخَ [...]


    4. I was really amazed while reading this book. Essentially it reminded me "The Catcher in the Rye" but like other Golding's novels this one is rather downbeat. Not so dark as "Lord of the Flies", but any way - downbeat.The strange thing is that almost all heroes have a kind of mental sickness (e.g. main hero's mother likes to watch life of others and, in fact, torture the life of her husband and son). The whole society of Stillborn is sick with social prejudices and was broken into several social [...]


    5. 1992 notebook: Disappointing. Middle class amateur dramatics in a small town. I did like Evie, but Golding is so sexist he almost makes her a stereotype beyond redemption but she's still more interesting than the main character and everybody else put together. A town crier, the major in a bathchair, a lipstick marked doctor. Dull.


    6. I hope this might be a fine book for those in their teens or those passing their once teen-age years. This novel was not interesting to me but I found reading it curiously and interestingly hilarious since the eighteen-year-old protagonist, Oliver, is the first person who narrates the two key episodes in the 1920s in Stilbourne in England. Claimed to be "William Golding's funniest and most light-hearted novel, probing the painful awkwardness of the late teens, the tragedy and farce of life in a [...]


    7. 'Still, HEAVEN IS MUSIC,isn't it ,Kummer?'გოლდინგისეული სელენჯერი?:დ დღენი უილიამის სიჭაბუკისანი^


    8. Very clever, well written and amusing novel. Not sure I liked Oliver terribly much but the book kept me engaged and it was a swift read.


    9. A book club choice and not at all what I had expected. This member usually chooses really long thick books such as the Goldfinch, Nevil Shute, Dickens . all very worthy but hard work to get through. So this was initially a pleasant surprise with its humour as I had expected something similar to Lord of the Flies. It seems to be 3 separate stories around the main narrator and of course came across as quite old-fashioned as it was written in the early 1960's. After a few chapters though it became [...]


    10. يتتبع أوليفر الطابع البائس لبلدته التى يستعد ليتركها للدراسة بأكسفورد وتغيير حياته، وعند مفترق الطرق تتبين له أشياء مقززة بخصوص بؤس الناس العادية والغلبانة فى بلدته، وبؤسه هو بخصوص وضعه الطبقى وأحلامه الساذجة بخصوص الموسيقى والحب والتى تحطمت تماماأسلوب جميل، هامس ومتمكن [...]


    11. Great coming of age tale, not least because in typical Golding style all the faults of the 'hero' are displayed in a brutal way.



    12. okay. nice writing and thoughts but ZERO plot. I really never got into this book. Have not given up on the author though,



    13. (Portuguese review further down).What an interesting book! I did not know exactly what to expect but I ended up enjoying it quite a bit. It is very interesting the way in which the Author describes to us a "pyramidal" society in which people have hardly the space to be happy. There is in the young boy a certain "innocence" that includes a lot of ego centrism and selfishness - but one gets the notion that this happens much more out of inexperience and ignorance about the depths of Human NatureOne [...]


    14. The book is almost like three short stories, each concerning the same central character, Olly.The book begins with an excellent opening in which Olly’s dreamed about neighbour, Evie, whom he has never spoken to, calls at his house late one night to ask for help. This leads to a story of intrigue and love between the two which is fine work and immediately had me buying more books by Golding.About half way through, we meet the Olly who has come back from university, only to get roped into amateu [...]


    15. Kitap bir genc cocugun cocukluk ergenlik ve olgunluk donemini sirasiyla olmasada ayri bolumlerde her bir bolumu ayri bir konuyu ele alarak antalmasindan olusuyor. Kitap sadece hikayeleri degil o caglarda ki ingiltere de ki toplumsal siniflandirmayi ve ayrimi da gozler onune sunuyor. Ozellikle ilk ve ikinci bolumde ki tiyatro konusunda bu cok net gorulmektedir. Oliver adli cocugun 18 yaslarini anlatmasiyla baslayan kitap ilk askini ve kacamaklarini konu alirken ikinci bolum universiteye gttikten [...]


    16. This book, as small as it is, took me a long time to read. At points (especially in the second of the three interlocking 'novellas') the story was too slow and the narrative was not particularly engaging. I almost put it down multiple times. However, there were moments, every once in a while, that were beautiful. Moments that perfectly captured a feeling, a tiny perfectly realized slice of an event. These moments were enough to convince me that if I were to put it down, I would probably miss som [...]


    17. If it weren't for his name on the cover I never would have known this was by Golding. Ropey dialogue and characterisation, especially in the first novella. It wouldn't have mattered so much, but this was fully half the book. The narration was beautifully written throughout with a clever and subtlesubtle use of rhythm. It's emotionally cold and distant in the first half. Admirably done, but in a book that depends on emotional engagement in matters of the heart I found it an astonishing artistic c [...]


    18. I expected to like this more than I did. It did encapsulate the self-absorption of youth and the accompanying disgust of others that only sometimes mellows with age. The first section was very uncomfortable reading: the protagonist pursues a girl who is sexually available to someone else, therefore by his reasoning she must be sexually available to anyone else who asks (or doesn't ask but just tries to take). He does not behave well and I couldn't sympathize with him much after that. There were [...]


    19. Had a totally different view of William Gilding as I did Lord of the Flies at school for GCSE and didn't really enjoy it. Thoroughly enjoyed this story and really sad to come to the end. I felt the style was very much in the manner of Evelyn Waugh who I love. Really hysterically funny in sections ( The theatre Production ) but incredibly sad at the conclusion (Bounce) Wonderful characters and their stories but also the story of the main protagonist coming to terms with life. Feel that this book [...]


    20. Mid 2. The opening third of the novel is a glorious coming of age story delivered in the most wondrous of prose. However,Golding chooses to uproot and transport the reader to the return of his now mature protagonist to his hometown. Unaccountably he does so whilst cutting all narrative threads to Evie, the most colourful character to consume Oliver's adolescence. Worse, the plot centres on a comedy of manners surrounding an amateur theatrical production, and clever use of dialogue aside, little [...]


    21. An acutely accurate presentation of life in a small town. The characters are so clearly and carefully drawn that I found myself immersed in their world from the very first page. I could not put the book down. There were things that made me smile and sometimes chuckle to myself but I was in no way prepared for the unexpected ending. An excellent read making the best use of beautiful English prose.


    22. The last sentence of Lively's introduction perfectly captures this book: '"The Pyramid" is a powerful piece of fiction into which Golding has packed comedy, tragedy and an extraordinary evocation of a lost way of life - mercifully lost, one may think.' I just finished it, and my confused, melancholic mind can't better that description.


    23. I was disappointed with this one, having really loved Lord of the Flies and the Double Tongue. It came across as quite biographical and I felt quite uncomfortable about his relationship with Evie, with her character never really fully explored/explained.


    24. Sir Golding'den okuduğum ikinci kitaptı. Tıpkı Sineklerin Tanrısı gibi sürükleyici ve sıkmayan bir anlatım var.Kitapta sınıf farklılıklarından ve çocukluktan yetişkinliğe geçiş sancısından bahsediliyor
