i think the boys didn't react normally, because normally when people get stranded on an island with no adults, they become very scared. so the boys should have been scared if they are really that young.
I agree with Lexie because most kids would not be excited to be on an island all alone without parental protection, but they would be scared. The way the boys reacted in the book was different from how i would react. They were not scared to be all alone on an island, but if i were them i would be terrified.
i don't think that the boys' reactions were normal or appropriate because normal boys or even girls, at that age would have been terrified if they were left alone, stranded on a island without any adults. They were very calm about it though, and i thought it was a great idea that Ralph and Jack had everyone vote for who the leader should be. Ralph was being really responsible, although i don't understand how he isn't scared. i know if i were in those boys' positions i think i would just cry and cry until someone came to rescue me!
In Lord of the Flies, the boys are quite excited about the island of which they now live. This is totally normal/predictable because they have the island all to themselves and no adults to tell them what to do. As twelve (and under) year old boys they were curious, which is healthy, as well. The only unhealthy thing about their excitement is that it won't last long. They will soon have to learn how to fend for themselves and their utopian island will no longer be the paradise they now think of it as
I think that the boys did not react normally. They were strangely calm considering that their plane crashed and thay are stranded on an island alone with no adults.
i agreee that if my plane had crashed that i wouldnt be as calm as the boys are but at the same time when i was tweleve (or younger) i thought is was the coolest thing to not have a parent there at all times. So i agree with both corrina and olivia.
I strongly agree with Corrina about how the boys did not act differently. I was surprised that they barely even realized they were stranded on an island. It almost seemed like this had happened to them before.
I agree with Olivia. The boys are exited to have an island all to themselves with no adults. I know that if I was on a deserted island with no adults it would be fun to survive.
In Lord of the Flies, the stranded boys are very exited at the fact that they have an island all to themselves. The boys reaction to their new home is reasonable. The boys are stuck on a deserted island after their plane crashes. They quickly take charge of themselves by gathering everyone together by blowing a conch shell and elect Ralph as their leader. At first it seems as though the boys are reacting responsibly to their new environment. This seems normal. The boys have an uninhabited island all to themselves. Furthermore, there are no adults to tell them what to do. There exited reaction seems normal.
I agree with Gianni. Rather than being afraid of being left stranded in an unknown area, the boys were excited. They felt like they had the entire island to themselves, not really showing that they cared much that there weren't the usual adults around to care for them.
I agree with Gianni and Olivia. The boys thought their environment was new and exciting. They were carefree, 12-year-old boys who probably thought no adult supervision was fun. The boys didn't seem to worry about food or shelter or basic human necessities; they all just wanted a break from their parents.
The boys reacted quickly to their situation. Piggy and Ralph managed to call all the children together to form a meeting. They elected a leader. Three of the boys went and explored the island. I think it was very organised, especially for a group of young kids to do. It doesn't seem entirely normal for boys around that age to react this way, especially when I know I myself would've been scared to be stranded somewhere new. But they weren't afraid, so far. They were thrilled to have their own little paradise.
I agree with Nicole i think that they reacted to the situation in a somewhat organized fashion, however i belive that instead of spending time trying to fiqure out if they are on an island i thhink they should have started gathering recources to survive immidiatly
I think the boys reacted normally seeing as a.) They were excited about not having any adults around b.) They thought someone was going to come and save them and c.) they're young enough that they probably don't quite comprehend what being completely alone and having to fend for themselves means. Also, there aren't any evident perils awaiting them yet: no native people, dangerous carnivorous animals, etc., just a bunch of birds and a forest. As for their reaction being appropriate, I think, seeing as Jack freaked out after the pig killing incident, that if they don't keep calm their likelihood of survival is not very good.
I think there reaction at first is typical book or movie seen. Young boys who are ecstatic to be left alone with out adults. I do not feel that there reaction is normal. I think in a real life situation that they boys would be naturally scared. There leadership skills are amazing considereing there situation. I think that eventually people will turn there backs on people and become paranoid. It isnt normal for them to feel so safe with everyone in the begining. It doesnt seem realisitic that they would send only 3 boys off. What also doesnt seem realistic to me is the what the "choir" boys were wearing. The reactions to the "choir" boys seemed normal except the fact that the boys should have been shocked to seem them all wearing the same thing. How did they all get the same clothing and badges?
I think the boys did not react normally. If people are stranded on an island, most of the time they would be scared and freak out. Also, they don't have any food, shelter, or good drinking water readily available. Because most of them are very young, the older boys will have to step forward and take responsibilities that usually an adult would usually have. Most of them aren't mature enough for that and eventually, the system will stop working and everything will become chaos.
