    I finally decided to do my EE in English and it was made clear to me that I have to do it on a novel of my choice. What are some good novels which I could preferably do my EE on? I was thinking of doing it on Lord of the Flies but I heard that even though it has tons to write about, it's not complex enough for an IB EE. Is that true? What do you think?

    I don't see why it wouldn't be "complex enough" or what that even means. I would suggest comparing two novels instead of focusing on one, though. Remember that you need to write 4,000 words on the work/s chosen. While that isn't as much as it seems at first and most people go way over the limit with their first draft, comparing would just give you plenty of options to research something new which nobody has before whereas if you just pick Lord of the Flies, there's only so much originality you can put into it since I'm sure it has been analysed thousands of times.
