It was an entire chapter in the book and I do not think that it is right that there was no mention of it. Another big thing that bothered me was that Granpa was the first to die. None of the dogs had died yet, just Granpa which got me a little agitated. The movie took away a lot of important events that had an impact on Little Trees life. For example, in the book Little Tree is saving money for a box of candy to give to his Granpa and Granma and is mentioned throughout the book.
In the novel, Frankenstein does so in complete solitude, with no help or anyone observing him. In the movie, however, Frankenstein is not only aided by his hunchback assistant Fritz, but is also accompanied by his fiancée, his friend, and his former professor. Whale most likely took this direction for artistic and effective reasons, because the scene is clearly more exciting in the film than it is in the book. If one were to watch the movie prior to reading the book, this scene would only be described as anticlimactic in the novel. “By the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs” (Shelley 35).
There are a lot of comparisons between King Lear and Tom. They both accept they are going to die and then prepare for their death, but they do this in different ways. King Lear is selfish and wants all the attention from his family, whereas Tom accepts he will die and deals with it so he can take that burden off his family. There is also a hit of irony in King Lear’s speech which is read by Tom, when it says; “Conferring them on younger strengths, while we unburden’d crawl towards death”, because Tom is Young and already crawling towards
Later, as Ralph tries to escape the vengeance of the hunters, he lies "there in the darkness" realizing he is "an outcast" and rationalizes this by verbally saying to himself, "Cause I had some sense." At this point in the novel, Ralph has accomplished the mighty task of becoming an adult and furthermore, will never have a childhood similar to the one he had before the "scar," before Piggy and Simon, and especially before Jack. Ralph's childhood is replaced now by a maturity many adults never attain, thus setting him far ahead of the rest. Golding culminated the novel with the destruction of the island and where "Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy." Only mature adults remember true friends, weep for the end of innocence, and are capable of destroying an island.
The ultimate result being the unfixed lock leaves the shop exposed to thieves who ransack the place leaving Farhad without an income source for his family. farhad decides the only justice is to gun down Ruiz for the loss Farhad believes he caused by not fixing the door.

As Huck escapes he leaves behind clues to mislead his father and community, “I took the axe and smashed in the door. I beat it and hacked it considerable a-doing it.

Also, they turn off their emotions, allowing them to kill their old friends and acquaintances. Lastly, when an adult arrives providing comfort, everything is normal once more. The reason the boys in William Golding’s Lord of The Flies fall from civilization into savagery so quickly is because, when humans become fearful, they turn off their emotions. The more fearful of the beast the boys become, the more savage they become, because fear brings out the emotionless and ferociousness in humans. The beast is a huge element of fear in the novel.
“He thought of going home, of never returning…” However, he gave into the pressure of wanting to belong to this gang and hold onto his leadership. After all, he had nowhere else to go. “Driven by the pure, simple and altruistic ambition of fame for the gang, Blackie came back to where T. stood in the shadow of Misery’s wall”. Not only does the rubble influence the children to act out, but it also desensitizes them, along with the residents of the town. This is shown very clearly when T. replies “Of course I don’t hate him… there’d be no fun if I hated him… all this hate and love… it’s soft, it’s hooey.
Then he steals his father’s bike and rides away from his community as well. He broke three important rules of his society “and he had taken Gabriel, too.” (166). Breaking any one of these rules would have caused his release. By taking Gabe he not only commits a major transgression but also expresses his love towards the new child. This shows that Jonus thinks that killing Gabe is horribly wrong and wants to prevent it even though means he has to leave the community earlier and is less prepared.
