Special Sub-Topic: Ever Heard of Gigi?
|What is Gigi's real name?|
Gilberte. The first questions always have to be easy, don't you think?
|Here's an easy one: Which best describes Gigi?|
pale-skinned, ash-blond hair, slim. Though she was kind of "tom-boyish", Gigi was actually quite good-looking.
|How old is Gigi in the book?|
fifteen and a half. We know that Gigi was nearly sixteen during the book, that Aunt Alicia was seventy, and that Gaston was thirty-three.
|Who does Gigi live with?|
her grandmother and mother. Though she lives with both her retired grandmother and workaholic mom, her grandmother is really the one who takes care of her.
|What does Gigi's mother, Andree, do for a living?|
she's a second-lead singer. I thought Andree was really quite a bad mom for always sulking about her job and never paying attention to her growing daughter.
|Is Aunt Alicia older or younger than her sister, Madame Alvarez?|
older. Aunt Alicia and her younger sister, Madame Alvarez, are both ripe old crones who have never married but have had more than their share of lovers.
|What is the name of Gigi's school friend, the one whom was given a ring by a Baron Ephraim?|
Lydia Poret. Though Lydia has no role in this story whatsoever, she is mentioned once or twice in Gigi and Madame Alvarez's conversation.
|True or false: Gigi knows how to drive a motor-car.|
t. Not only can Gigi drive an automobile, but she drinks coffee, champagne, and smokes Egyptian cigarettes... what did you expect from such a proper French girl?
|How is Gaston related to Gigi?|
he's her uncle. Gaston is Gigi's granny's (Madame Alvarez's) son - presumably by another lover than the one who produced Andree (Gigi's mom) - making Gaston Gigi's uncle (half-uncle?).
|True or false: Gaston has a moustache.|
t. And he keeps toying with it so that it becomes quite annoying.
|What does Gaston have problems with?|
his love-life. It's quite disturbing, how many mistresses this guy goes through...
|What is Gigi's nickname for Gaston?|
Tonton. She also occasionally refers to him as "Uncle Gaston".
|Which of these does Gaston NOT give Gigi at one time or another?|
a miniature poodle. Madame Alvarez commented that Gaston spoiled Gigi - man, she was so right!
|When Gaston asks Gigi to marry him, Gigi enthusiastically agrees.|
f. In fact, she was so miserable over the idea her health started failing.
|How does the book end?|
Gaston asks Madame Alvarez for Gigi's hand in marriage. Though it is quite corny (not to mention sick, considering their ages...), this is how the book ends. As does this quiz. Hope you enjoyed :)
