10. William Golding’s Lord of the Flies  

Lord Of the files

This particular novel is commonly underrated primarily because of the critics arguing as to whether it is a dystopian novel or not. It outlines a few little boys stranded in a desolate island. Eventually the boys break all the shackles of imprisonment and foray into new avenues of life.  The tale stands a strong argumentative work for anarchy work. It portrays the general psychology of the young people and is considered to be well within the domains of dystopia by the critics.

The anti-religion stand points of the plot makes the novel content much debated about. The logical flow of the story often frightens its audience.
