Discussion Questions

(Taken in part from class.azltron.com)

  1. Most stories have some kind of hero. Is anyone in this story deserving of that title? Is any character even particularly moral?
  2. Given that there is no textual basis for the statement, why does Enid tell Rebecca that Josh prefers Rebecca to Enid
  3. Why does Enid visit Cavetown, USA and what does she discover when she gets there? Does this tell us anything about life in general? If so, what?
  4. In what ways are Enid and Rebecca different from John Ellis?
  5. What is the significance of the the title of this book?
  6. Both Rebecca and Enid seem to pride themselves on being different from normal, American society. Are they different from most Americans? Why or why not?
  7. What is the significance of Bob Skeetes astrological reading of Enid?
  8. What do you think of the way Daniel Clowes draws his characters? How would you describe his world?
