Extracts from this document...


14. You are Jack just before the feast in Chapter Eight. Write your thoughts about how you feel about being chief. I find the fact that I am now chief quite smashing. This feeling of power is incredibly good!..Of course, the few Ralph supporters went and supported him but I knew I had children on which I could count on. In the back of my mind, I knew the hunters would follow me. They think of me as a leader, a real chief; they would never leave me for Ralph.
