The “Life of Pi” Book Review

Life of Pi Illustrated Edition Cover 3

If you read this book, it will quite likely not leave you un-changed.  I have a beautiful slip-cased copy of the book, illustrated by Tomislav Torianic.  It is signed by both the author and the illustrator and is copy number 1173 of a limited run of 3,000 such books.  Published in 2007 by Canongate, Edinburgh, it consists of 449 pages.

Here is my very own personal review of the novel written by Yann Martel, “The Life of Pi.”  Please do not read, unless you really do want to know what I thought about the book upon reading it.

Please be warned that there are “spoilers” at the end of this review.

If you are squeamish and want to avoid gory details and even another gruesome twist right at the end of the story, which wasn’t in the movie, then DO NOT read the book.

First, let me say that I eagerly rushed out to watch the movie, directed by Ang Lee, and while I can’t say I really enjoyed watching the movie, because as anyone who knows something about the movie (and the book) it was about survival at sea; I found the movie evocative and amazing.  Now, onto the book.  I really wanted to read it to see if there was an elaboration of Pi or the author’s connection to God in the book.

I thought I would list the books I have, about Animals! I have just acquired a companion book to one of my very favourites, being “Strongheart Story of a Wonder Dog”. The companion book is J. Allen Boone’s 1959 edition of “Letters to Strongheart”.   I have just ordered the 1959 Letters to Strongheart and it is on its way to me as I write this.  You can read about the book “Strongheart – Story of a Wonder Dog” at this post   here.

I love reading and writing.  All of my many books are cherished by me, because I am a “bookworm”.  I am also a “read-worm” if that term exists, as I am always reading things – WordPress Blogs, labels on food containers, road signs, car signs, anything and everything.
