The beautiful island becomes a hell at the end of the novel. Finally, when Ralph is escaping from the hunting of other boys, he is saved by a navy officer who takes all boys back to the ship. Towards the end of the last chapter, the passage "Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man' heart, and the fall through the air of his true, wise friend called Piggy" demonstrates the main theme of this novel: man is evil by nature. The three things that Ralph weeps for are the lessons he has on this island: innocent boys become savage; all human beings have evil deep inside their hearts and the fall of science and rationality before the evil of human.

Palahniuk writes, “I know this, because Tyler knows this” (112): it emphasizes how the narrator considers Tyler as a forceful and smart person - even, a dogmatist. Tyler is fascinating and motivated; he has the ideas, and the narrator follows. He is a manipulator who transforms people as he wants them to be; he creates an anti consumerism, against materialism team through ‘Fight Clubs’. As the narrator asserts, “Tyler didn’t care if other people got hurt or not. The goal was to teach each man in the project that he had the power to control history” (Palahniuk, 122).
The appeal of Richard’s character is the most interesting aspect of this play. Several writers have commented on the audience’s attraction to him. Robert Ornstein, in his article “Richard III ,” describes Richard as an “engaging, heroic, honest villain, one who opens his heart to the audience in soliloquies and asides” (pg. 204). Richard is engaging because of his ability, during his ascent to power, to overcome anyone who presents themselves as an obstacle.
Power is a very strong word in the world around us. Since the beginning of mankind the desire for power has always been present in our world, because that’s what the man wants the most. People do the most terrible and the greatest things, while having this desire, and it seems like there are no boundaries. Power can make a man kill, but can also make him do the best heroic deeds. There is no end to that desire, because you always need more.
