I have heard so many great things about empowering story within this book from my various friends from all over the world of different nationalities, that I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. And when I did finally get my hands on it, let's just say that I devoured the empowering story within this...

Defiantly funny in the face of total devastation, but more than that, ever hopeful. I guess that last is the best part of strong faith. The important part. Inner piece and enduring hope. Here's the deal: I'm an agnostic. We get roasted inside *grin*. I could go a long while about the difference be...

DNF @ 20%. This is nothing but lectures on zoology, Hinduism and Christianity. Not that this stuff isn't interesting, but a book with a good story it does not make. The weird interjections of the guy talking about some other guy are, well, weird. Frankly, this book sounds like it wants to be mega su...

'Life of Pi' made the World Book Night list for 2011 and rightly so. Martel has created a modern masterpiece, which is beautifully written. The storyline is unusual and all the more absorbing for it. The ending too is intriguing and though the movie interpretation is good, it can't do full justice t...

The life of Pi is a story of courage and survival. It is a wonderfully written journey through life's struggle.

I've been avoiding Yann Martel's Life of Pi since it was published. It's nothing personal. I avoid stories "that will make you believe in God" (x) like a person with a peanut allergy in a Thai restaurant. I finally caved when a colleague at my university's English department pushed it on me and told...

This is one of the most amazing books I've read so far. The ending stunned me. I found no words to describe it. Life of Pi has some magic in it, yet harsh and gory at the same time. Yann Martel did a great job.

i don't get the hype. must be a taste thing. I know people who love the book but cannot get into it myself. I like a good story that sucks me in. this book didn't do that.

Life of Pi is one of those stories that strikes readers at multiple levels as they read, but like a fine wine, reveals its complexity in after-tastes of reflection. It is a story about survival at sea, though with a twist--the castaway, Pi, shares his lifeboat with an adult Bengal tiger. Obviously, ...

Pi Patel travels with his family from India to Canada, on a cargo boat filled with zoo animals. When the boat sinks, Pi is stranded on a lifeboat with a tiger for a castaway companion. When I started this and the author spent a page and a half talking about three toed sloths, I thought this was goin...
