Ralph has said, “This is a good island” (Golding 35). Ralph’s pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. This is an example of foreshadowing. What problems do readers already know about? Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all.

The "snake like monster" that some of the boys have seen at night and is mentioned more than once is a clue that something is in there, roaming and most likely looking for something to eat. The fact that it is so hot in the island makes it hard for the boys to do hard labor and build things. Also the "creepers" that the boys can get caught in while running and or tangled in.

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.

From what we have heard from the story, there seems to be a lot of theories of that this "beast" looks like/ if there even is a beast. Percival has just mentioned to the boys that the beast lives in the ocean and only comes out at night. Then again Ralph and the boys also start to question if this "beast" is a ghost. Some of the boys believe they have seen this beast, and others believe that its all in there heads. We are not for sure if there is a beast or not, and if there is its actual appearance...

Name at least two things the boys are doing or have given up that show how they are now operating on instinct and no longer trying to follow the rules of society. Explain your answers with information from the text.

Some things the boys have given up doing is... using the bathroom where the rocks are along the island, and started going anywhere they need to go, which has now made the island dirty and even more unsanitary then it already is. They have started to drink straight out of the lake, instead of getting the water and putting it on coconut shells and they have been braking some of the rules such as going out at night, and not going out in pairs of two. All of this has caused the boys to start acting more "dirty" and there little hierarchy to start and fall apart.
