This is probably one of the best books I've ever read. Very powerful symbolism and subtle metaphors that make you truly explore your own belief system. On top of all that, it is really well written...a real page turner! A great read!

This book is a quick, wonderful read. There are lulls in the 'action,' making you wonder when you're going to get back to the story. You will not be disappointed. And the ending.... I never expected it.

I loved the writing style of this author, can't wait to try out some of his other work. I found myself looking forward to the moments when I could sneak away to be alone with this book. It seemed to drag at the beginning for me, but really picked up when the journey in the lifeboat began. I'm not really very squeamish, but I found myself cringing at some of the stuff that happened. I was rather disappointed by the ending, but all in all a good read.

This is such a great book to have on hand for mom's, teachers, church teachers, anyone that works with young children.

Those using Paper
Glue
Paint
Clay and Dough Markers
Crayons
recyled and found art
It also had crafts for holidays.
Children are able to get such a varied experience using different art supplies and it's all planned out for you!

A little slow, detailed and seemingly wandering in the beginning, this story all comes together in a stunning tale of survival that keeps the reader hooked right up until the last chapter when you'll be flabbergasted by the brilliance of the writer. The best book I read this year!

Once you begin this book it is hard to put down. After finishing it I pondered for days - what was the true story? It definitely stays on your mind for a while.

This book was excellent. My mom had been trying to get me to read it for months, but I had no time in college and then I had 5 or 6 books I had to read before I could start it. I'm very glad I finally read it, though. It's extremely well-written, and the story is about as interesting and absorbing as stories come. He's stuck on a 26-foot life raft with a tiger, after all. How much more suspenseful can it get?

My favorite quote from the novel is the message Pi puts in the glass bottle he finds in the ocean: "Am in lifeboat. Pi Patel my name. Have some food, some water, but Bengal tiger a serious problem. Any help very much appreciated. Thank you."

-- WARNING: POSSIBLE PLOT SPOILING FROM THIS POINT FORWARD --

Also, I personally believe he was stuck on a boat with a tiger, no matter if the last chapter gives you an alternate theory: Maybe the tiger was his dehydrated, half-starved, and very traumatized mind's way of coping with his hopeless situation, the extreme and occasionally gruesome things he had to do to survive, and the terror he witnessed at the hands of the other survivors, who ripped each other apart, literally, in pursuit of life. Of course, it's quite possible Pi doesn't even know which story is true himself - or that he knows perfectly well the tiger wasn't real, but wishes it were so he doesn't have to think about the much MORE terrible occurrences on the boat; however, much like Pi says in the end of the book, if I have to choose between the two stories, I choose the better one. The one with the animals.

One of my closest friends begged me to read this for the longest time. When I finally got a copy of it, I questioned his taste in fine literature. The first third of the book was incredibly boring, and it took me at least a month to get through it, and I'm one of those people who can finish a book in a day or two. I was going to give up, but he kept pushing me to finish, and I'm glad I did. Once it got interesting, I couldn't put it down. Something about trying to survive alone on the ocean doesn't have much appeal, but when you throw in a carniverous island that eats people, and an ending that makes you question if the story actually happened, it was an amazing book.

this is a paperback from Quality Paperback Book Club, so, if you are familiar, it is bigger than a paperback, yet smaller than a hardcover. the ISBN did not match any that PBS offered, but I have no doubt this is the entire novel as originally published in hardcover.

I loved this book

An odd book, with a plot blurb that just wasn't all that enticing enough as I had the print book on my TBR for years before finally giving it away, even though so many recommended it. Then along came the audio, and I was hooked from the moment I heard Pi speak.
And that is a good deal of what kept the headphones glued to my ears. Pi speaking this deliciously different tale, in a voice obviously of a young man, who spoke words that sang due to the melody of his soft Indian accent.
I know I'd have read things with my eyes and thought it was good writing, but I would not have laughed out loud quite frequently, even at things that really were not all that funny, if not for Pi's voice and lilt, the sardonic humor that filled his spirit. The way he could not only emphasize words, but letters in those words.
He broke my heart, while I was laughing. He called out "Richard Parker" over and over, and I could not hear it enough.
Of course, this is due to Jeff Woodman, an amazing narrator, and the author, Yann Martel, with the most creative of minds.

I love this book. I love that Pi loves religion, is a devout Hindu who prays to Mecca, and goes to Mass, and probably keeps the Sabbath.
And I learned a lot about wild animals, too. Those in and out of a zoo.

One of the most original and interesting and exciting and absolutely NEAT books I've ever read. One of my lifetime top ten. If you have no sense of adventure and no imagination whatsoever, don't read this book. If you simply cannot suspend being grounded totally in practical reality, don't read this book. On the other hand, if you want to take an amazing journey, do read Life of Pi. It asks... What is real? Hmmm.

For some reason I kept not reading this book even though it was on the best seller list forever. When I finally read it I loved it! It's very unusual but grabs you so you have to keep reading.

It came highly recomended to me, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe that it was just too much religion for me.

The story was good, but it dragged. I wanted to hear about the shark he SAW, not every other shark in the world. I didn't need to learn about every single sound that a tiger makes; I just needed to learn about the one that Pi's tiger made.
