What an interesting read. A fable told like it was real (and convincingly so if the other reviews are to be believed).
A wonderful tale of overcoming ordeal and adversity - I don't think I could last over 200 at sea in a life boat - with it without a Bengal Tiger.
It could be a hard or difficult read the first person style seems to jump from author to Pi and back without any indication of who is talking however after a while you begin to understand and can easily slip from one to the other.
I do want to see the movie adaptation now I have read the book.
A great piece of modern fantasy or should that be fable? Or something else.
God plays a big part in this story as well which is I believe the main intention of the author, to me however, I enjoyed the fantastic elements - the story builds and grow on you. I had to finish it I had to know what happened next. I read it at lunch today and again now in the evening just to get it done. Sign of a good book.
