A novel is a book-length fictional manuscript whose pages when printed and bound inside a cover becomes a book. Just being fictional and bound isn't enough -- collections …of short stories, novellas, and other fictional texts can be bound, but they don't thereby become a novel. A book consists of printed sheets that can be made of almost any material (paper, parchment, fiberboard etc.) that is fastened/bound together on one side and usually protected by some type of covering. Although these are often bound, again, binding isn't essential. For example, books can be electronic with scanned images. The lack of binding doesn't mean that it isn't a book. Additionally, a book -- in common usage -- tends to have a copyright and be the product of a publisher. One could debate this aspect (e.g., is an unpublished diary a book?) In short, a novel is usually a book, but a book isn't necessarily a novel. The terms aren't interchangeable. Just remember that novel normally refers only to works of fiction. If the book isn't fiction, it isn't a novel. (There is a subgenre of nonfiction sometimes called a "nonfictional novel"; the first well-known example of this is Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood".) Book refers to the physical attributes of a thing. It is made of paper, wood, involves ink and pages attached to a spine by glue. A novel refers to the structure of the intellectual content of a book. The difference between a book and a novel is that a novel refers to a fictional manuscript that represents some character and action whereas a book is anything printed on pages and bound within some cover.
it was originally published in 1954. other copies came out in 1962, 1997, 2003, and 2006
what are the themes of Lord of the Flies?
This novel is thought to make a powerful statement about the nature of human beings, which is that we are readily prone to barbarism, despite our apparent civility.
the book is the only one that counts in the GCSE syllabus. There are actually 2 film versions, in 1 the kids are American, in one ther is an adult. Frankly i would just treat …them as separate stories because they vary alot
Which movie? There were two different versions. One was released in 1963 and was shot in Black & White. The other was released in 1990 and was shot in colour. They are b…oth completely different in their treatment of the story.
Ralph, Jack, Simon, Piggy, Roger, and Samnerik ( Sam and erik). These were the only named characters in the book.
Lord of the Flies is a novel which works on several levels. It can be read as a boys' adventure, a coming of age story or an a complex allegorical novel filled with symbolism.…
Only three characters take an active and named part in chapter three. Jack, who was hunting for pigs alone, returned to the beach and struck up a conversation with Ralph, who …along with Simon had been building a third shelter. Jack and Ralph eventually go to bathe in the pool. Simon leaves the beach and walks through the forest, pausing to pick fruit for some littluns, on his way to his 'secret place,'
There are two movie versions of Lord of the Flies. The 1963 version, shot in Black & White, sticks fairly closely to the original story, missing out a few incidents because of… time restraints. Notable differences are that Simon has very pale blonde hair in the movie but black hair in the book. Jack is quite well built in the movie but describe as being bony and skinny in the book. Piggy probably isn't as fat in the movie as he should have been. The second movie version, released in 1990, is total reworking of the story. the English schoolboys in the book become American military school cadets. There is an injured adult on the island with them, who never appeared in the book. Jack has blonde hair and Ralph has black hair, although in the book Ralph was described as being fair and Jack had red hair. The underlying symbolism of the story is completely lost and Jack is made far too likable and his reasoning for his actions seems perfectly logical. Jack in the book was an aggressive obsessive boy and his actions were not reasonable. Of the two movies the original black and white version sticks most closely to the book. The later version, by altering the plot and characters, loses much of the impact of the book and reduces the adaptation to a throw away boys' adventure story.
the Floyd's is allot serer to red
The Lord of Flies is the Pig head on the stick, but he is also the beast and the fear inside the boys that makes them savage
gib is the boy who disappeared at the beginning of the book with the mark on his face :)
