Transcript of Huts on the Beach
Jack's Hunting Party
Jack is alone hunting pigs
He gives up and goes to find Ralph
Ralph and Simon are making shelter
They've been working hard while the 'Littluns' go off to play on the beach
Jack and Ralph begin to argue about their priorities

They think there's a ship, but they're wrong
They fight more about priorities

"As if it wasn't a good island."
Astonished at the interruption, they looked up at Simon's serious face.
"As if," said Simon, "the beastie, the beastie or the snake-thing, was real. Remember?" (pg 52)

"I bet if I blew the conch this minute, they'd come running. [...] When the meeting was over they'd work for five minutes, then wander off or go hunting" (pg 51).
