Answers

Simon is bothered about a great deal many things in the book. Primarily, he is concerned with the continued and downward spiral of the boys toward their animal nature (and inherent evil natures). This is especially evident in Chapter 6 when he has an epiphany when speaking to the Lord of the Flies and realizes that the 'beast' is the boys, themselves.
