In conclusion, we sympathise more with Piggy. From the novel, it is evident that the appearance of one contributed to the level of sympathy each individual received. In chapter 1, during the first meeting of Ralph and Piggy, Ralph already made fun of his stature and "assmar", his appearance further results in him not being able to join Ralph and Jack in their expeditions around the island,whereas Simon was able to join them. Piggy definitely received more criticism from the boys than Simon, not only because of his appearance but also because of his law-abiding character. Piggy was the only one who stuck to the rules that were set at the start of the novel by Ralph which is a symbolism of hope that the boys might become civilised again. His death hence depicts the end of that hope. This makes us reflect, why does those who respect the law end up on the losing end?
