"Something deep in Ralph spoke for him. 'I'm chief. I'll go. Dont'argue.". Ralph is the leader of the Island. He is hardworking and willing to get what needs to be done done. The author seems to think that Ralph is one of the most important people on the island. I like Ralph he is calm and determined to get off this island and is willing to work to build shelters and fire while the rest are off playing.
"Come away. There’s going to be trouble. And we’ve had our meat." Piggy is pretty much "the head engineer" of the island. Even though no one really likes him they need him for survival. The author seems to feel that Piggy is both needed and not needed. I feel that the kids on the island need to keep Piggy for he is the brightest in smarts.
" We'll hunt. I'm going to be chief". Jack is the head hunter. He is hot-headed and is always mad at either PIggy or Ralph, but he is driven. The author has Jack as the main conflict starter. I don't like Jack because he is rude, mean, and dose nothing really for the survival of the rest.
"I wanted--to go to a place...just a place I know. A place in the jungle." Simon is emotional, but he is one of the few that are willing to work to build shelters and to help others survive. Simon is seen by the author as one of the kids that is on Ralph's side most of the time. I like Simon as well he is nice to most of the kids and still fights for what he thinks is right.
"'Here!' Said Sam suddenly. 'Take this-- Ralph felt a chunk of meat pushed against and grabbed it."Sam and Eric are twins who are always together. They are close friends with Ralph. The author likes sam and eric for they are on Ralph's side. I like Sam and Eric because they are loyal to Ralph.
"You couldn't stop me coming if I wanted."Roger is one of Jack's hunters who leaves to join Jack's clan. He is big and means. The author seems to not really like him. I don't like him because he is very mean
