I read the book several years ago and forgot most of it, but remembered the important part: that I thought it was one of the best books I ever read. And I love the movie. Ang Lee did a spectacular job of capturing the essense of the book. Look for this at the oscars.

We really enjoyed the book and were a little reluctant to see the movie in case it might be cut up, changed or compromised.
Silly us - this was the closest movie adaptation of a book I have ever seen. It wraps you in the humor, humanity, fear, hope and anxiety we loved initially.

Eleven years ago I read and relished Yann Martel's irresistible, allegorical "Life of Pi"; many pivotal books gradually sink into the vast recesses of one's mind, titles fade, but in this instance Pi's journey sunk its literary teeth into a comfortable corner of my memory; took up permanent residence, and in gratitude to Ang Lee's profoundly beautiful, visual production, a substantive, realistic vibrancy emerges as the tale unfolds...

A powerful story, narrated in first person, as Pi reveals his amazing adventure to the story writer in a way that leaves one wondering at the end if this was a halucinatory fantasy or pure reality. This was a beautiful film that was well scripted, offering the viewer an amazing mental,visual, and spiritual experience that satisfies the soul at many levels... Go!
