Life of Pi

Postby mfarraday » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:13 pm

I read this recently and loved it. Any other fans? Haven' t seen the movie yet...I thought the writing was sublime. I loved hearing about all the zoo animals and their logic/reasoning.

I read it several years ago, and plan to re-read it before seeing the film. It's an amazing story by a very talented Canadian author!

Oh, I loved it. I'm always leery when there's so much buzz surrounding a book, but Life of Pi lived up to the hype, imo. And, omg, the end! It was brilliant! Any book that leaves me thinking about it weeks/months/years after 'the end', has a secure spot on my favorites list, and this one is definitely up there. Books this good you just gotta talk about, which I'm sure is why Life of Pi has reached so many people.

I plan to see the movie, but really wondering how well it'll translate in film.

Received Life of Pi just yesterday. I bought it for my eldest grandson but I'm going to read it myself first. From everyone's comments, it looks as if I'm in for a good read.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

I read LIFE OF PI some years ago, and loved it. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, which I have heard is excellent.

I read this book many years ago just before visiting a friend in Saskatchewan, Canada, where Yann Martel is the writer in residence at the University. He is French Canadian, born in Spain and has travelled and lived in many countries, including India. To all those who are reading or have read this great book (a book about faith) - see the movie after the book.

:oops: A geography lesson for those who know their Canada and are not mis-typers like this Canadian:
Saskatoon is in Saskatchewan which is in Canada. Saskatooners are proud to have Yann Martel resident in their town and province.
