Many people argue exactly where the climax of the story lies. Some believe it is when Simon faces the Lord of the Flies (pig's head on a stick). Most people believe it is when Ralph is being chased by the boys at the end of the book. Golding stops the high point of the action with a sudden ending (Deus ex machina).
