What factors made the boys become so violent? Make a prediction for how the book will end. 

There were a couple of factors that made the boys become so violent. The main reason as to why Jack’s tribe became so violent was because of the way that Jack was acting. If Jack hadn’t stabbed Piggy, if he hadn’t fought with Ralph, and if they hadn’t had a discussion then his tribe wouldn’t have followed along with his actions. The boys were also so violent because of the way that the meeting happened. Ralph, Piggy and Samneric came unexpectedly to Castle Rock and that deepened the sense of hostility that Jack’s group felt for Ralph’s group. 

I think that Ralph will die/be murdered by Jack’s tribe. He seems to be alone now. Samneric will most likely be forced to join Jack’s tribe, and Piggy is gone. I don’t think that the boys will be saved because Jack’s tribe is not at all concerned about keeping the fire lit.
