"It had never occurred to us to wonder how we would feel, being seen like that, being the spiders."

"Maybe all of us at Hailsham had little secrets like that--little private nooks created out of thin air where we could go off alone with our fears and longings. But the very fact that we had such needs would have felt wrong to us at the time--like somehow we were letting the side down."

Posh "children" who become posh "adults" and remain the same flavor of blandness over the length of the entire novel. Perhaps would have enjoyed more with a better sense of suspension of disbelief.
