The fire had died down and so did the smoke (at this current point) for the grownups to see if anyone was stranded on the island. This is ironic where that Ralph had given Jack the responsibility of making sure the fire was always there and had boys to watch for any sign of help but since they all fell asleep, they lost the chance of being rescued. 2. “We don’t need the conch any more.

In the beginning of the novel, Perry was an uncertain teen who didn’t know where his place in life was “The real question was what I was doing, what any of us were doing, in Nam” (69). By the middle of the book, Perry started to become doubtful of himself and started to say Jenkins and Carroll died because of him “In a way i felt real bad just for being alive to write it” (110).

However they are prevented from reaching their goal because of nature, specifically by ocean waves/currents and the storm. One of the passenger on the boat would state “If I am going to be drowned, why in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea was I allowed to come thus far?” Through their struggle, they would end of having to swim to shore because of the potential that the boat could swamp.
