In chapter five Piggy asks, “What are we? Human? Or animals? Or savages?” From your reading of the novel so far, how would you answer this question?

Piggy and Ralph and the littl'uns are trying to act like adult humans and follow the rules. Jack and the choirboys are giving in to the savage side of human nature. The truth is we are all humans and we all have many different characteristics; the only real question is which instincts and behaviors we live our lives following.
