The author made piggy out to be the dumb sensitive kid who just wanted to go home, but in reality Piggy is one of the smartest on the island and is actually trying to help everyone survive. Honestly in the beginning of the book I thought piggy was going to be one of the first to die but in the end he ended up being one of my favorite characters.
The author conveys Simon as the shy timid kid who keeps to himself but tries to be kind to everyone around him at the same time. Simon was a character that died in the end but really didn't deserve it, he was killed by is "friends" because they thought he was the beast. I think that Simon was a very under rated character.
The author made Jack crazy, he had an obsession with killing and end went more crazy as more time passed on the island. My opinion on Jack is that he was a crazy over rated character he was a bully and he really my least favorite character.
