I hope that you read at least some of this terrific book! :)  Golding starts his novel with the children being stranded on the island.  As they begin to figure out how to survive, they change from what they were when they first landed.   Their relationship with the island is one of survival -- yet, their survival ultimately depends less on the island than on their relationship with each other.  Several aspect of the island itself are very important:  1.  the lagoon where they meet and discuss and swim and play, 2.  the fruit which is easily attainable, but which Jack insists is not enough, and 3.  the presence of the pigs.  What parts of the island do you think are innocent?  Is the pig's head on a stick part of the island or part of the boys?  Does the island change or do the boys change?  Is the fire at the end of the novel belong to the island or to the boys?
