The Pigman Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Why is the novel narrated by John and Lorraine, in alternating chapters? How would the book be different if John were the only narrator? What about if it were only Lorraine?
  2. How would the novel be different with a third-person narrator?
  3. Who, if anyone, is responsible for Mr. Pignati's death?
  4. Do John and Lorraine seem like real teenagers to you? Does Zindel do a convincing job of creating teenage characters? Why or why not?
