"Piggy's right, Ralph. There's you and Jack. Go on being chief."
"...the freckles on Jacks face disappeared under a blush mortification. He started up, then changed his mind and sat down.."p.23
"I don't agree with all Jack said, but with some..."
"Simon was crying about a dead man on a hill." pg. 152
"Kill the beast! Cut his threat! Spill his blood! Do him in!"
Ralph is a boy with long fair hair. He is a boy with a knack for leadership, but still is childish in different ways, like in making fun of Piggy at the beginning. The author's attitude towards Ralph is that he was supposed to be this great lead, but the author showed that Ralph is still just a kid and can't really handle the pressure. My reaction is pretty basic, he's the main character but not much stands out about him
Jack was a tall skinny kid, leader of his choir group. He was very aggressive and self-centered. The author's attitude towards Jack is making him the crazy in the world that he thinks everyone has, but have Jack express it to a point where it spreads and takes over others. My reaction to Jack is that he was a child, and when he gained power, he didn't know how to use it well, only for his own needs.
Simon was one of the older boys in the group and had short brown hair. He was the kind and sanity in the group of boys, but was over powered by the Islands tole on the boys, getting him killed. The author's attitude from the start is that Simon being the light in the dark had to go out in order for the groups to split and completely lose everyone to the island, making Simon a target from the beginning. My reaction to Simon is feeling bad for him because he was the one character who really could talk to Jack and Ralph,and make the hunters listen, unlike someone like Piggy.
