Tomorrow (Dibben) - Discussion Questions

Discussion Questions
We'll add publisher questions if and when they're available; in the meantime, use our LitLovers talking points to help start a discussion for TOMORROW … then take off on your own:

1. Other than sheer imagination and fun, why might the author have made the choice of using a dog's perspective to view the passage of human history?

2. (Follow-up to Question 1) What does the dog reveal about the human experience—our hope for peace but propensity for violence; our dual capacity for love and cruelty? What else? Does Champion have different ideas about what he sees as right?

3. Well, dear reader …what IS it about dogs? Were you moved—did your eyes moisten—by the plight of Champion and Sorco?

4. A man tells Champion, "You are the soul of all men." What does he mean?

5. What do you make of Sporco? Jean Zimmerman, in her NPR review, compares him to Sancho Panza, Don Quixote's side-kick. Do you see an analogy?

6. What are the pitfalls of a extra longevity that Valentyne and Champion experience? Does long life have any appeal for you? Would you sip from the cup of jyrh if offered?

7. Has reading Tomorrow added to your knowledge of history?

8. Do the book's shifting time frames enhance the narrative, or do you find them confusing and distracting?
