Lord of the flies consists of a group a boys who fin them selves stranded on the island. They all become over whelmed with fear over the "beastie" but as readers we know the beastie isn’t real. However when your a kid your imagination can go along way may that be playing games, telling stories, or obsessing over an idea that isn’t real which over all leads to an unnecessary fear.

When were kids everyone is scared at something at one point in time, for I was scared of snakes, and actually still am today. Walking through are yard in the summer I use to jump run scream and cry every time I saw a snake, even though I knew they wouldn’t cause any harm. I wasn’t scared of a snake because of its appearance, it was more the idea of something creeping and crawling that led me to panic every time I saw one. And that’s just like the lord of the flies. In the back of their minds they all know that the beastie isn’t real for they would have seen it, heard it, or seen some kind of sign that it existed. But instead it started as a snake, a ghost in the water and than some huge flying creature. The boys didn’t have a actual fact of the beastie, they were just scared of the idea, the unknown. And most of the time that’s why people get scared is because their mind gets flooded with thoughts that eventually lead into an unnecessary fear. Be it snakes, ET, or the dark, children will get scared easily.
