Recommend reading the book before seeing the movie, as people who have been bored at the movie have certainly missed most of the point of the book. One of a kind book.

I was fascinated with this story, enough to have a debate with a friend as to it's authenticity. The concept was so unusual that it became a must-read, and even when parts seemed to drag, I was brought into the story from page one. The strengths and weaknesses, along ...
I was fascinated with this story, enough to have a debate with a friend as to it's authenticity. The concept was so unusual that it became a must-read, and even when parts seemed to drag, I was brought into the story from page one. The strengths and weaknesses, along with the fears and solutions drawn by the author about the young man who is the main character are real and very well expressed. The beautiful tiger, always called by his full name, is shown all the honor and respect that I hope all of us give to all animals in our lives. Yes, please read this book.

    Almost

    What begins quite interestingly loses steam in the final chapters.

    The book is at its strongest (and very interesting) when it describes the behavior of animals (including man).

    Life of Pi is well worth the read.

    I enjoyed the book very much. I thought that the first 100 pages were boring but then it got so good I couldn't put it down. Now I want to see the movie.

    Exellent!

    An amazing story that will stay with me a long time. Weaves spirituality, adventure and the strength of the human spirit together in a tale that grabbed me from the very beginning. Also contains interesting bits about different kinds of animals, fish and zooilogical facts. Will be recommending to all my friends and family.
