As a result, Max never had a friend, at least until Freak came along and reached out to him in his lonely world to bring a light of possibilities to his life. Starting from the escape of Tony D., Freak saved Max, as he says, “..because they never knew it was Freak who rescued me”(Freak the Mighty, pg.41).

The novel “Lord of the Flies” written by William Golding shows us different faces of a human being. In the novel all the boys are stuck on the island in different situations they show their different sides. It is not always important to be a good or bad person every time. Golding shows how a human can take someone’s life for their benefit, he shows us the savagery taken to the next level by the boys on the island. It was mostly hard for boys to stay in a civilized manner without any adult supervision, although when they come from such civilized families.
At the beginning of the story, Golding introduces a boy named Piggy, a fat, intelligent boy, who feels shy about himself and loses his self-confidence through the story.
