Kelly H. (Maybedog) My Life In Orange and the Father Brown series aren't speculative fiction. The first is a memoir the second are mysteries.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) Life of Pi is also not science fiction, is it? And An Unexpected Journey doesn't sound like one, either.

Arguably, Life of Pi could be considered Science Fiction, depending on which "truth" you buy into about the plot of the story. I'm not going to spoil anything though.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) You could put the answer in spoiler tags. I have no desire to finish the book. I find zoos repugnant (although I know some do great conservation work) and I felt it hard to get past it when I already found the book boring. So I am really curious!

Kelly H. (Maybedog) That is weird and pretty cool. Sounds like modern fantasy to me. Odd that I"ve never heard that before.


message 7: by Julia (new)

Julia Life of Pi belongs on this list, for me, besides what Olivia writes, because Pi is a seeker, who studies and reads and gets to know about a great many religions, as well as having some unusual experiences.


message 8: by Heidi (new)

Heidi I don't mean to be difficult, but #82 Father Brown (the complete Father Brown) is not science fiction.
