In the exposition of the story, there are a bunch of boys on a plane, but the plane crashes onto a deserted island. Piggy and Ralph find a conch and use it to try to find the other boys. The protagonist in the story is Ralph because he is trying to keep everyone together and get them rescued. The antagonist is Jack because he isn't making as much of an effort to get saved, and turned the rest of the boys against Ralph and Piggy. One of the conflicts in the rising action is when the ship passes and doesn't see the smoke from the fire because the boys let it go out. The climax is when Jack and the rest of the boys other than Ralph and Piggy go on their own and act like savages. The boys get rescued while they are trying to hunt Ralph at the end of the book. I liked this book because it showed how kids might act if they didn't have any adults or civilization anymore. I relate to Ralph the most because I like to be in charge of things and make decisions.
