Lotf Chapter 2 and 3

Lord of the Flies

Chapter Two

It was not surprising when he noticed that the little nun was missing because he is very cautious and cares for the wellbeing of others. Piggy has been through a lot in the past and through all of his difficulties he has learned how to be a mature individual.

4. It would appear that all the boys with some sort of physical defects were outcast.   They were separated form the rest of the group. Jack and his tribe were bullies therefore it is safe to conclude that Jack and his tribe were the ones responsible for the deaths of the boys with physical defects who could not defend for themselves.

2. Some of the boys focus was on hunting a pig for food and the younger boys were interested in playing around.

3. Jack felt like something was behind him all the time when he was in the jungle it compared it to the feeling...
