    I really enjoyed the 1st book, i dont like this one as much but i still am enjoying it!!

  4. Sydney — April 11, 2012 @ 8:11 pm

    This book is so diffrent from the 1st one. Mr. Pignati was such a nice and sweet guy. Guss isnt as nice and sweet like Mr. pignati was but i still like him, he has a good personality!

    John and Lorraine i think have liked each other right from the start! I liked how it ended!

    Last Comment!! Dolly and Gus make a really cute couple and i just fill really bad for her because now hes dead! I think they should have 1 more book and have it be about how everything was after..

    To tell you the truth I like the Pigman better than Gus. But I still like the book.

  8. Krystine Jorg. — April 12, 2012 @ 6:11 pm

    This book it soooo diffrent even alot of people personality’s change, pretty good though.

  9. Krystine Jorg. — April 12, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

    I just have to say how much I love John and Lorraine’s secret pages/ paragraphs.

  10. Krystine Jorg. — April 12, 2012 @ 6:20 pm

    OH MY GOSH I <3 the ending of the book. Mostly the last page but it was soo awesome.

    This is book is AMAZING. It is way different from the first one but still great. John is such a cutie. :) awh. Him and Lorraine are so cute. :)

  12. Kourtney Strong — April 12, 2012 @ 8:06 pm

    I cant even imagine putting myself in John and Lorraine’s shoes. Having to deal with two deaths of two wonderful old people. :(

  13. Kourtney Strong — April 12, 2012 @ 8:08 pm

    I was wondering how The Colonel lost his dog Gus? It is lucky he found him again! Gus seems like such a cute dog. I wonder how the dog feels about his owner dying?

  14. Kourtney Strong — April 12, 2012 @ 8:10 pm

    I think its soooo CUTE how Dolly and The Colonel got married right before he died. But wasnt Dolly and The Colonel like 20 years apart in age? Well i guess age is just a number. I think its cute how John said he wanted to spend his life with Lorraine to her. So cute. :)

    this book was really good book. it made me really sad tho. i didnt like this book as much as the first one but i still liked it.

  16. megan bindrup — April 15, 2012 @ 2:42 pm

    i think i still liked mr.pignati more than gus because the pigman was always nice and gus was grumpy. but i dont know i really like them both its hard to decide. gus it really understanding and nice tho.

    This book wasn’t really the best. I really enjoyed the first book better. Although there is some very entertaining parts within it so far. Yet there is some boring parts in it to I really think it could have been better.

  18. Aubrey Shaw — April 16, 2012 @ 4:44 am

    Wow what can i say. Gus is a very mean guy in this book, and I think that if he was nicer like the Pigman it would really be called The Pigman’s Legacy. Mr. Pignati was so nice and then you have a brand new character that is totally oppisite. I think it kind of ruins the whole story.

  19. Aubrey Shaw — April 16, 2012 @ 4:48 am

    I really enjoyed page 61. The road of life really got Mr. Pignati back on the mind. Could’nt say he was all there though because he still had his moments during it.

  20. Aubrey Shaw — April 16, 2012 @ 5:00 am

    The end was suprising. I didn’t realize they would actually get together and saying for the rest of their life! who knew? Although the part where the Colonial dies was very predictible, it wasn’t a suprise at all in my eyes. This was a really great book.

  21. Rachelle Aurich — April 16, 2012 @ 6:05 am

    I can’t believe John spent all of Dolly and the colonel’s money! You can tell John feels really guilty and I feel bad for him, but I also feel really bad for Dolly and the colonel.

  22. Rachelle Aurich — April 16, 2012 @ 6:07 am

    I loved the ending of this book! It made me cry a little. I’m so sad that the colonel died, but I think it’s so sweet that him and Dolly go tmarried first. I just wish Gus could’ve seen him first.

  23. Rachelle Aurich — April 16, 2012 @ 6:09 am

    My favorite part of the book is the very last page where John says that he wants to spen his life with Lorraine. It was a very bittersweet ending. It was sad because of the colonel’s death, but at the same time I’m really happy that John and lorraine are finally together! I just wish there was another book about them.

  24. Rachelle Aurich — April 16, 2012 @ 6:12 am

    I think I liked this book more then the first one. I love Mr. Pignati and I think they did a lot of fun things with him, but a lot of exciting things happen in this book too. I love that Dolly and the colonel are together and I love that John and Lorraine reveal their true feelings for each other.

  25. Lia Bermudez — April 16, 2012 @ 2:05 pm

    I love this book its so cute that when John and Lorraine were at the hospital and then John said to Lorraine that he wanted to spend his life with her was soo cute! I loved that part I love this book so much!(:

  26. Lia Bermudez — April 16, 2012 @ 2:08 pm

    Also Gus, that everybody thinks that he is a bad guy but that he is really not. When I was reading about him then I remember that you cant judge a book by its cover and it remind me of that quote.(:

  27. Lia Bermudez — April 16, 2012 @ 2:11 pm

    Oh!(: and also how Dolly and the Colonel got married! And that its saying that age is only but a number. No matter how old you are you can still show your love.(: so cute!

  28. Lia Bermudez — April 16, 2012 @ 2:14 pm

    I also think that i could see Lorraine are going to get married and live happy forever. I also see them having a little Pigman in there house.(: i love this book so much!!(:

  29. Chelsea Mabey — April 17, 2012 @ 2:50 pm

    i liked the book it was kinda weird at the start… it was cool…. if you read the pigman and liked it you should read this

  30. Chelsea Mabey — April 17, 2012 @ 2:52 pm

    I loved the ending of this book! It made me cry a little. it was sad how colonel died. sadness!

  31. Chelsea Mabey — April 17, 2012 @ 2:54 pm

    i love how john and lorraine think the pigman is now part of that old guy! that made me happy! awesomeness by the way if you add ness to anything it makes it a word

  32. Chelsea Mabey — April 17, 2012 @ 2:56 pm
