Nov 14, Ben rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Months after I read this book and went on to other William Sleator books, I did a report on it by creating the large game board described in the story. I think I still have it in the back of a closet in San Leandro. I do remember than while creating it, I wished the slots I cut, the swirls I painted, and the cards I wrote really would do what they were supposed to do.
Interstellar Pig and Singularity are the two best William Sleator books because they fuck with the mind most successfully. At leas Months after I read this book and went on to other William Sleator books, I did a report on it by creating the large game board described in the story. At least that's how I remember it. Every time I see a shattered window, I think about how all the lines, if extended, might point to a single location in the distance where space voyagers would perk up their senses with the knowledge that I've spotted them, and come after me.
I'll have to go back and read the book again. Maybe I'll dig up my game board and now it'll work. Jan 18, Lauren rated it liked it. This was It had kind of a weird plot, but you get used to it I guess. It was suspenseful at some points but others were kind of slow. Its not until you get to the end of the book that it actually starts getting interesting. View all 4 comments.
Oops, forgot to review as I read it the day before packing for a trip. I remember it fairly well, and I do like and recommend it. Among Sleator's best.
Because I admired Barney's persistent curiosity, the fact that he'll take risks just because he wonders what's going on? The interesting way the parents we Oops, forgot to review as I read it the day before packing for a trip.
The interesting way the parents were worked into the story? The fact that a week, many books, and a vacation later I still remember it pretty well? Too bad I don't remember the exact ending I bet the sequel isn't nearly as good, but in any case I probably won't be able to find a copy. Jan 18, Caden Hartley rated it liked it. Overall I really enjoyes this book. In the beging it makes you think. Like who the tree mysterious neighbors are.
And why they are always trying to come into the captains house. It keeps your attention and always leaves you with a cliff hanger from chapter to chapter. Overall its a good read and I would recommend it. Apr 30, MichaelM rated it really liked it.
I enjoyed this book. It was really interesting to read, and had lots of weird elements. I thought the concept was was interesting and made the book fun to read.
I like the character development, and the descriptions to. I normally don't read science fiction to much, but this was good. Jan 19, Nathan rated it really liked it.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. First of all I want to say that this was a read aloud. That may have swayed my opinions on the book both positively and negatively at some points.
When we first started the book it went kind of slow. Barney met some neighbors while vacationing on a beach.
The neighbors charmed his parents quickly and were oddly angry at the fact that they could not get the beach house that Barney was staying in. In this house there was a tale that a captain of a ship that had put his brother in after he went mad First of all I want to say that this was a read aloud.
In this house there was a tale that a captain of a ship that had put his brother in after he went mad.
Barney became friends with them and started to hang out with them more often. They were obsessed with a game they said was brand new called interstellar pig. He played a few times and found it odd that the "randomly" cards that show you what alien character you will be for that game were the same for his neighbors every time.
Every game they ended up drawing the same aliens. He went over to their house one day and snooped around to find a document about the story of Barney's beach house.
When his neighbors sailed out to a nearby island in search for the "trinket" that the captain's brother had carried around for what is presumed to be the rest of his life.
Interstellar Pig Series
Barney stole it from its crate before the others could. Disappointed the neighbors sailed home. Barney hung out with them a bit more before they finally realized that he had the piggy the trinket the captains brother had and this proved that the game was real.
They all tried in their own ways to persuaded him into giving them the piggy. At the end he didn't and they all changed into their true forms they are aliens and attacked him. Other creatures showed up too and a battle happened. Barney found out that the piggy was lying and he let on of the creatures take it. The book ended with the other aliens leaving earth chasing after the piggy.
Overall I really enjoyed the book. At first it was kind of slow, then during the battle we only had 5 minutes to read each day so there were many cliff hangers which made it even better. Great book if you like science fiction. View all 7 comments. Mar 25, P. Aaron Potter rated it it was amazing Shelves: Back in the day, there wasn't much to write about.
Did I say Wall? Multiple Walls. They are now separating the YA fiction into genres because they take up about half of the store.
That's a good thing. It's like all the authors who even deigned to compose YA fiction thought that what teenagers wanted to read about was other teens just as messed up as themselves. What teens wanted was an escape from the misery of hormones and cliques and oedipal tensions and peer pressure and all the other crapola that S. Hinton and Judy Bloom were shoving at us.
Thank God for J. Of those, Interstella Pig was better than many. It contains just enough of the adolescent angst to feel realistic, psychologically, while providing escapism in buckets in the medium of a boardgame being played by aliens for life-and-death stakes.
That is pure gold to a budding nerdling, so if you've got one or three of your own geeklets, by all means hand this over to them. One of my children has asked me to read all of William Sleator's books. So far they are great. Interstellar Pig is innovative and entertaining story-telling, and it reminds me of what books for young people could be like, before "YA" became a category. I have a feeling that all my ratings of Sleator's books are going to be 5 stars, both because my kids love them, and because I'm rating them in relation to other middle-school popular reads being published recently, such as the execrable books of One of my children has asked me to read all of William Sleator's books.
I have a feeling that all my ratings of Sleator's books are going to be 5 stars, both because my kids love them, and because I'm rating them in relation to other middle-school popular reads being published recently, such as the execrable books of the GONE series, which in comparison make William Sleator books sound like William Shakespeare.

I finished this for a second time at least with students today. It is always a relatively quick, engaging, and fun science fiction read.
I have yet to have a student not like this book, which makes it a safe choice as a read aloud, and the final fight scenes are action-packed and compelling. Pick it up - you know you want to! Jan 18, Levi rated it really liked it. This is a really great book. The story and the plot makes you want to keep "reading" until the book is over. If you don't like science fiction or fantasy however, I wouldn't recommend this book to you.
Jan 26, Samantha added it. I thought it was pretty good book. I am usually not a big science fiction fan but this book I enjoyed a lot.

The ending seemed a little weird to me because I didn't see it coming because I haven't read a lot of science fiction books so it seemed to me a little weird at the end of it. Overall I liked the book a lot! Jan 31, Heather R rated it really liked it. Interstellar Pig is about this boy who moved with his parents.
He meets his next door neighbor and plays a board game with them. The board game turns out to be real life later on.
I loved this book it was my favorite all year. Mostly because it was science fiction and thats my favorite genre. Also it talks about all these creatures that weren't just in a fiction book but it all being real. The theory I have on this book is The Piggy is the one taking information from the creatures who have The P Interstellar Pig is about this boy who moved with his parents. The theory I have on this book is The Piggy is the one taking information from the creatures who have The Piggy and put that information into the book.
Apr 26, Michael S rated it liked it. I read this book for the Science Fiction Unit with my group, and it was one of the best books I have read all year. It starts off very confusing and introducing many characters.
But as the story goes on the book starts to develop.
And the things that they said at the beginning that made no sense, start to develop into a crazy plot. I loved how the characters weren't who you thought they were, and how the book kept getting more intense.
No doubt one of my favorite science fiction books this year. Some YA fiction is aimed at the younger set - this is one. Bonus, it is science fiction, though far from the hard-SF that I enjoyed as a youth. Most of the high ratings are for nostalgia, where this is my first time.
Not sure I can recommend this book. The scooby doo mystery takes a few chapters to get rolling. After that, most chapters kept my interest, though there were slow patches. At other times, important action happened in just half a page. The pace was ragged. The plot worked, and wasn't p Some YA fiction is aimed at the younger set - this is one. The plot worked, and wasn't predictable or narrow - though the focus was quite linear.
No side story, no romance, and very soft science fiction. As the protagonist was fond of sci fi and shown reading The Puppet Masters early on , I am surprised he didn't ask more questions when he had the chance. I don't plan to seek out the sequel written 18 years later , but would welcome a conversation with someone who loved this book. For me, it was just OK. Jan 23, Logan rated it it was ok. Personally didn't really enjoy the childish and obscure things that constantly seemed to happen that left me shaking my head.
This along with the fact it didn't grab my attention until late in the book is why it earned my star rating of 2. This book was read to us when I was in elementary school. I thought it was so good that I checked it out again a year ago and re-read it. May 19, Travis added it.
This was a very strange book, I thought it would be confusing and it was at times but it was mostly clear. There really isn't much to say except "The Lichen were confused". I think this was a super-fun, great YA read and I am happy to have read it as an adult.
I am also very disappointed I didn't stumble across this book when I was younger during the times when I would be dragged out to lake-side cabins for family vacation. Interstellar Pig tells the story of a not-so-boring summer vacation with one's parents Barney is vacationing in an old sea Captain's cabin. The cabin is steeped in I think this was a super-fun, great YA read and I am happy to have read it as an adult.
The cabin is steeped in gothic lore featuring the captain's brother and a long lost treasure. I am trying to summarize the book without giving too much away, but it's quite difficult to do without making this whole review a spoiler. Ultimately, Barney must learn to navigate a relationship with some very strange, fellow vacationers and a mysterious, intriguing board game that they have.
All I have to say is this is a super fun, very enjoyable read. It was interesting and a bit of a puzzle; perfect for those who love sci-fi and board games. Really, this could maybe have been a series arc of something like Dr. Who or Star Trek. Mar 29, Brigette rated it it was amazing. This was a fun and absorbing YA read involving some shady visitors, an old sea captain, a possibly haunted vacation house on an island, and a strange board game.
As a fan of board games, YA fiction, old sea tales, and all things haunted, I quite enjoyed it. I've read this author before, and highly recommend him. Jan 22, Aiden B. When we first started reading this book I didn't think much of it but when Barney started playing Intersteller Pig it got much better, and when Barney found the piggy that's when it really started to get good. I would definitely recommend this book to any science fiction fan. Yes, I'm one of those people who really liked this book as a kid.
But I just reread it and was pleased to see that it holds up well even when read by an adult. Check it out! The thesis is that Barney, a year-old human, while on vacation at the beach gets sucked into an interesting board game called Interstellar Pig The game's objective is to be the one holding The Piggy when the timer goes off, lest you and your home planet be destr Yes, I'm one of those people who really liked this book as a kid.
The game's objective is to be the one holding The Piggy when the timer goes off, lest you and your home planet be destroyed. Harmless fun, except that the odd neighbors are excessively interested in the story of the cabin Barney is staying in, about an old sea captain and his demented brother who clawed marks around the window of his bedroom for twenty years.
Can Barney figure out what they want and maybe even find it first? And will he ever win a game of Interstellar Pig?
This is a quick read, with fast pacing, told well with a creepy undertone. As usual, Sleator shines with his creativity even when some of the protagonist's actions and thoughts are painfully over-explained. In contrast, any scene with Barney's parents in it can be skipped without loss, but that's okay because they're not the point of the story anyway.
