s.penkevich Review review!
Good book? Isn't there a film of this coming out soon too?


message 5: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich I've heard good things. I'll make my sister lend it to me ha.


message 6: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich Ha, we have a good book exchange going. I recently forced her to read some David Mitchell


message 7: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich Ooo sequels?! Excellent. He needs to hurry! I'm making it a goal to read Thousand Autumns this autumn ha. Maybe after IJ to give myself a satisfying and equally amazing comedown.


message 8: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich Yeah, that is such a beast of a novel. I don't have the time for it right now ha, but I'm riding a DFW high after reading so many of his short stories and essays so I really want to get to it.

I hope his next one is out soon. I read something about how it'll be about growing up in Ireland or something? I wonder if he is going to go back to his multi-layered/narrated novels like CA or Ghostwritten ever.

It's really good hermano and a quick read. Yeah I think the movie comes out in November.

Kelsey Fernandez and great review Megan!


message 26: by B0nnie (new)

B0nnie Megan your review is great, so enthusiastic! I found this edition at the Goodwill last week:
Life of Pi by Yann Martel

It has several illustrations and an especially nice painting of *Richard Parker* on the cover. The clerk was going to charge me $4 - but I "proved" it was a kid's book by showing her the pictures, so I only had to pay $1.49. I am a bad person.


message 27: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich Great review Hermana, good use of quotes as well. Each review has been getting better and better! Guess what? We get to pet giraffes at the zoo next week! Be very excited (Tilly is!).
So the life of Pi isn't just 200 pages starting off 3.14159... haha
Also, that video was AWESOME. Take that, deer!

Ha! That's hilarious. I want to 'prove' that the old modern library editions of Dostoevsky books are kids books because they have illustrations in them haha. Good work.

Muchos gracias hermano! Wait, we get to PET giraffes?!?!?! OMG i'm excited haha you can probably just leave Tilly and me there.


message 31: by Megan (new)

Megan Yeah that video was sweet I spent like a half hour trying to find one, but some warned they were really bloody and I got to nervous when they went to kill the animal and turned it off haha then I found that one.

message 37: by Stephen M (new)

Stephen M Sweet review! I've been interested in this book ever since I heard Margaret Atwood talk about it in an interview. (this whole interview is great by the way, definitely worth watching).

Thanks Carrie! Might as well read it again with the movie coming out soon ;)


message 43: by Scarlet (new)

Scarlet A great review for a great book:)
One boy and a tiger adrift on the pacific, with no scope for conversation and no change in scenery, and yet, Life of Pi manages to be a life-changing story. And your review does justice to its brilliance.
:)


message 44: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich I like your review way more than mine.


message 45: by Maryellen (new)

Maryellen you review was one of the best I've read, everything i felt, especially about the ending, you put in your review! :) i chose the first story, its too heartbraking to beleive the second


message 46: by Maryellen (new)

Maryellen p.s. your favorite quote was wonderful, it seems like it wasnt in my version,which is peculiar cause i looked for it in the last chapters and couldnt find it,....not much was said on their seperation which kinda bothered me.i wanted a better goodbye :)

Thank you for such kind words Maryellen! While I believe both stories I agree with you in choosing the first which I think has a lot to say about faith. While I do not doubt the second story it is faith that has me choosing the first and how faith can help you through a horrible situation. I think that quote was right when Richard left, that's upsetting it's not in your version you've been cheated out of a great line ;)


message 48: by Maryellen (new)

Maryellen yes u are right :) completely cheated out of a good quote!!!i even read the last chapters to be sure, heartbreaking once again. keep on the good reviews xx
p.s. cant wait for the film too :)

I know the last few chapters were just heart wrenching! Thanks again! Yeah I still need to see the film I heard it was amazing so hopefully within the next few weeks I will finally get to see it!


message 50: by Kyle (new)

Kyle Fantastic review, Megan! This seems to be a book where a lot of people come away with greatly differing ideas and perspectives about it. I like that you came away from it thinking the same things I did, and managed to articulate it better than I could hope to. :)
