Free fall by William Golding

This book is the fourth novel of the English writer, William Golding, published in 1959.                                                                                                                                      It’s about a talented painter, named Samuel Mountjoy, who is a prisoner of war in Germany. A Gestapo officer, Dr Halde, asks questions to Samuel to find out about escape organisation, because some prisoners managed to escape from the camp. But Sammy denies, so the officer decided to locked him in a small room.                                                While he is lock in the darkness room, he wonders how he got there and particularly how he lose his freedom.                                                                                                                 I think that this book is really interesting because it show the conditions of war, espcially in camps, and how people tried to survive and still have hope.

  1. It seems to be an interesting book. If you like books which tell about the World War II. I really advice you to read If This Is A Man, written by Primo Levi. In this book, he describes his incarceration in the Auschwitz concentration camp. This book has really upset me. However, as you said I think that it’s interesting to read it because we understand what they felt during the war and we realize the horrible conditions with which they were treated.

  2. I agree with you, aspects of war are well valued! Moreover, William Golding is a very good author
