The Pigman

The Pigman

by Paul Zindel

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(3) Base Camp

The Pigman is a relatively short, easy read. There's hardly any tough vocabulary. It's the questions it asks that grab you and make you think, such as "Are John and Lorraine responsible for Mr. Pignati's death?" This novel asks questions like this, and doesn't provide any easy answers.
