What the community says about Life of Pi
- "A pretty though provoking book that will stay in your mind days after you read it. In fact, you will most likely find yourself coming back to the book and give it many more reads in the future. It's a little bit of a downer but if you are into that sort of thing you will like this movie."
- "This is one of those books that it's almost a shame was made into the movie because the author has such a fantastic way of telling the story that can never come through in a movie. It's a Booker Prize winner because it is such an enduring, captivating, and well written narrative. Martel weaves fact and personal experiences into the narrative in a way that makes you learn history and science along with the journey of Pi and the tiger. "
- "If you enjoy Indian literature than this story is certain to be a treat! It has all of the elements of traditional folklore, however Pi's story seems to transcend your average tale! It hints at cultural elements, continuity, and tradition. But also escapes into deeper elements like humanism and ultimately survival. This story will take you deep into the recesses of your own thoughts about life as your follow the plight of the main character. "

- "This book is better than most man vs. nature type novels I have read. It goes beyond most stories in terms of philosophical topics like life and death and religion. I really enjoyed the religious sections of the book as they touch on spirituality that I don't have much experience with in America."
