⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Usually, award-winning novels are not for me. Life of Pi is a wonderful story of struggle, survival, and amazingly, hope and belief. It is a beautiful story.
Genre: Adventure fiction
Date started: September 13 2019
How did you choose the book. I was trying to play fortnite and my mom kicked me off and told me I should read a book.I told her “ i have no books to read“ she then gave me this book. This book is lucky that i like tigers.
Write a brief summary of the novel; who was the protagonist; what was his/her problem and how was the problem resolved?
After all these years I still haven't read this or seen the movie, but I picked up a library sale copy recently so it's up for me in the next few weeks. #letstravelaugust #ship @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620
A rare night at the theatre to see a stage adaptation of one of my favourite books.
So well done, I got a bit choked up at the end. The cast and puppetry were fantastic.
I suspect this production will have life after its brief stint in Sheffield so if you get chance to catch a future production, I‘d recommend it.
(Day 6:Warm Colors) Orange and red are two of my favorite colors, and I collect tigers—orange ones preferably. I haven‘t read Elantris yet (on my TBR). If you like mysteries and want a fun late Victorian/Edwardian series set in Egypt with a delightful squabbling couple and their precocious son, read the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters. #ColormePretty #PhotoChallenge @Sweetkokoro
My college library is still accessible for me until term finishes and I've found some really great books to read there!! I'm excited! Emily has recommended that I also read Johnson's Fen so I'm going to give that a go too hopefully.😊
(sorry for the blurry photo - idk why it's posted like that!)
I truly believe this will be as good as the film, if not better! 😍
Happy Pi Day and nearly St. Patrick‘s Day!! I of course had to make an apple pie, which I can‘t wait to dive into. Fun fact I actually LOVE to bake. It makes me happy, but I don‘t always have time to do.*
Also Life of Pi was one of my favorite high school reads! *

What I love about this story is that by the end, you don‘t know what the truth is. Did Pi make up a story to save his mentality of the even more traumatic story he tells at the end? Or did he actually survive over 200 days on a lifeboat with a tiger? Between the movie, and now the book, it is a story I always wonder back to in hopes of an answer I‘ll never get; but I‘m never disappointed!
Thanks for the tag, @Suzze !

5. I feel like I‘m late to the party? So if you love questionnaires, I tag you!
Yan Martel & Jerry Pinto discussing Life After Pi. Martel is a fascinating speaker & Jerry Pinto is my favourite Indian author but it was the early morning session and it was cold so we started with chai off to the side of the stage. These funky terracotta cups are treated as *disposable*!!! (So I‘ve clearly got a decent collection going now). I‘ve never read any of Martels work but now I‘ve got some autographed copies so I‘m going to need to!!!
I didn‘t care for Life of Pi. Didn‘t see the movie but when it came out, had to listen to people praising the book again. I really hated it when people tried to explain it to me. I understood it, I just didn‘t like it.
First time I read this I DNF‘ed it. Then I tried again and finished it. Nope. Just got frustrated with it and didn‘t understand all the hype.

Mixed feelings about this one. Much of it is great. I lost a night's sleep because of it, I got so caught up in the drama of Pi's story and couldn't put it down. Fascinating. There's theology, action, adventure,& exploration, survival & perseverance. Well-written, w/humorous parts that made me chuckle. Unfortunately, I had to skip over parts unbearable for animal lovers. So, trigger warning. Gruesome animal torture aside, it's a good book.⭐️⭐️⭐️
I unexpectedly loved this book; I loved Pi and I loved Richard Parker. I know I didn‘t take from it the deeper meaning the author no doubt intended; I admit the first and last sections lost me somewhat. It is for reasons like that that I am still scared of #booksthatwinprizes. However I loved this book simply because I loved the story of the boy and the tiger, whatever the deeper meaning might be 🐅
I‘m in a book slump because I‘ve told myself I need to try and clear some books from my TBR before Christmas but nothing is inspiring me. I started this yesterday in a grumpy frame of mind - I‘ve had it lurking around for what feels like years but have never fancied it - and am now surprised how much I‘m enjoying it! 🐅
maybe i‘m just a grumpy bitch this week but i feel like .... this is heavy handed, fairly tedious for an averagely-long novel, and not as clever as it wants to be.
pretty sure i enjoyed the movie more (tho to be fair i was stoned when i saw it).
4/10 still don‘t believe in god.
Maybe not #runningacrossthinicewithtigers , but for Pi‘s fantastic journey, he was floating across an ocean with the majestic Richard Parker....
I only just read this book for the first time in November, and I absolutely loved it. 💕🐯🛶
And after having had to say a final goodbye to my dog Skippy this week, this quote/image from the book I found on Pinterest, touched me so much.... 💔
I really wanted to love this book but the beginning was painfully slow and took too long for the plot to take off. I enjoyed the somewhat whimsical writing and was charmed by Pi and his quirky view of things however was turned off by the religious undertones and political pondering‘s. The ending just messed with my mind making me question my own perception of everything I just read. After reading this I‘ve found myself somewhat ambivalent.
