Beah’s memoir on the other hand, disproves Golding’s hypothesis by showing that eventually humans will make the right choice. When Jack gives no time for Ralph to react to the death of his best friend, it represents how Jack is indifferent through his lack of feelings to those who are hurt. Ishmael Beah was about to kill another human being, but as he walked to the body, he told us that he had no feelings toward the rebel fighter.
