In the middle of the altercation, a boulder is launched from a catapult-like contraption, hitting Piggy square in the face. Piggy’s “head opened up and stuff came out and turned red. Piggy’s arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig’s after it had been killed” (Golding 181). This is the one quote where parents have some cause for concern, as the scene in which he dies is fairly graphic compared to others in the book. His dead body is described in some detail, and his killing is more purposeful and sadistic than the other acts of violence in the book, which are either for food or somewhat an accident.
