"They breathed together, they grinned together, they were chunky and vital."
The author writes SamnEric as being dependent on the other boys and themselves. They are always together and they don't spend much time together. They are dependent on the boys to keep them safe. Though they are twins they're often looked at as one person.
Chunky, vital, shy, described as "barely having enough skin to cover both."
I think that SamnEric are the boys who follow what majority of people are doing. They don't show many leadership skills but often are lead by other boys like Jack or Ralph.
Shy, furtive boy, dark hair, and a mean face.
The author portrays Roger as a mysterious boy at the beginning. He kind of just keeps to himself and doesn't talk to a lot of the other boys. As a character he grows in the sense that he grows meaner. He grows this evilness which results in him killing Piggy.
Roger to me is very mean and creepy. He is the one who killed Piggy simply because he could. He realized that there was no one to stop him so he killed Piggy. To me that shows he could kill anyone in a heartbeat.
"There was a slight, furitive boy whom kept no one knew, who kept to himself..."
The way that William Golding in "The Lord of the Flies" portrays Jack in the beginning is that he's a leader and he really wants to help the other boys. As the story begins to go more into depth it is shown that Jack is a little more savage than we thought of him at the beginning. The author makes him a character who is a savage.
I don't like Jack. Jack is someone who doesn't really listen to other people's opinions. He just does what is best for himself and not others. When everyone was worrying about getting off the island he was worried about finding food or hunting.
Blue eyes, red hair, tall, and grey shorts.
"Why should I be Jack? I'm Merridew"
The author makes Ralph as a leader. He is the one who basically makes up all the rules and tells all the boys how to do them. When we go deeper into the story we see him become more of a brother like figure to the Littluns. He is the one who was driven to get off the island.
"He was old enough, twelve years and a few months..."
Twelve years old, blonde hair, tall, and athletic.
"He was skinny, vivid little boy."
Tan, tall, and skinny.
I think that Simon is one of the best characters in the book because he could've went with Jack and the other boys to try and hunt pigs but instead he stayed behind and helped out the Littluns. He also whenever Ralph would ask him to help with building shelters he would. Simon was always one of the only boys who followed the rules.
The author showed Simon as shy character. He didn't really talk to the other boys but when they needed his help he was the first one to show up and help. Throughout the story we see Simon help out the Littluns, as well as Ralph, Jack and the other boys when they need help.
Glasses, fat, and brown hair.
"The fat boy glanced over his shoulder, then leaned toward Ralph."
Piggy was often portrayed as the kid who was lonely and didn't have many friends if none. He was someone the other boys saw as weak. Piggy would often try to pitch in or help but the other boys would often disregard him. The other boys would bully him.
Out of all the boys I see Ralph as the only true leader. Ralph is the one who thinks mentally not physically he thinks that if they build a fire the boys will get off the island. While the other boys went off and were hunting he was the one to stay behind to build a fire. He wasn't trying to show off.
Piggy was my favorite character because he was always the one who wanted to help but was held back because the other boys wouldn't let him. All Piggy really wanted was to get off the island and get home. He often would get nervous but he still persevered to get through the times that were really hard.
