Literary Device: Irony- "We saw your Smoke" This is ironic because the whole time Ralph tried to keep the fire going in the hope of being rescued. Jack sets the whole forest on fire to trap Ralph and then kill him. This is when someone actually sees the smoke and comes to rescue the boys.
My Opinion: After finishing this book, I had mixed emotions. Personally, I did not like all the violence that happened throughout the story. I was so shocked about what the boys did. I did like how the book expressed that the beast is within us. It showed that men are truly sinful.
