Rory’s Book Club Review: Life of Pi

I’ve never been trapped on a lifeboat for months on end with my only companion being an adult Bengal tiger. Consequently, it’s funny that “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel spoke so loudly to me. This book had an ickyness factor of probably pg-13. I don’t usually like books with ickyness because they are just icky. Add to this the fact that lots of people on Amazon didn’t like it. People on Amazon love everything. It takes a strong story that can have all this against it & still change my life. I don’t usually like metaphors. I like people who say what they mean.  This story was captivating enough to make me draw metaphors from my own life, & they were good metaphors too, if I do say so myself. This has become one of my top favorite 3 books of all time. If nothing else, at least read the dust jacket about the author & then flip to the front about the story.  I won’t ruin it for you.  If anyone else has read “Life of Pi” I would love to hear your thoughts. Bottom line, the man can write, he really can.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    I loved Life of Pi, which is weird because I don’t usually like books that, erm, “end like that” let’s say…I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who may happen to read this but I like to know exactly what has happened, what’s real what’s not, etc etc. lol I guess I did kind of spoil it. uh oh.

    One of the stupidest things I’ve ever said was to Yann Martel. I went to hear him speak about the book, and afterwards waited in line to have him sign my book. Somehow in the one minute of conversation I had with him I mentioned that I wanted him to sign the book to my friend and not to my because I got my copy from the library.

    Just put the L sign to my head anytime now.

    People on amazon don’t like the book? I didn’t know that it was possible for anyone not to like that book. In my opinion, it’s amazing.
