Golding relies heavily on figurative language like simile throughout the book. Here are some examples:

"sleep enveloped him like the swathing mirages that were wrestling with..."(ch.1 pg.19)

"This last piece of shop brought sniggers from the choir who perched like black birds...."(ch 1 pg 28)

"Like candles. Candle bushes..." (ch 1 pg 40)

"The breezes that on the lagoon had chased their tails like kittens..." (Ch2 pg 45)
