I just reread this exquisite novel for the third time in anticipation of the theatrical release, and I still consider it my favorite book. It’s been six years since I last savored Pi’s incredible journey and I was smitten all over again. The beautiful language captured Pi’s experience so elegantly – the joy, the anguish, and the intensity were tangible. Pi is one of the most extraordinary characters I’ve ever encountered in literature. I celebrated his victories, I mourned when he wept, I felt his fear, his hunger and thirst and his will to live. Of course one cannot write a review without mentioning his bond with Richard Parker. Pi acknowledges the very fact that Richard Parker, who could have been his death, saved his life. I could rant and rave for paragraphs about the aspects of this book that I adored, but I don’t want to waste words when I can just bask in the afterglow of an amazing story.
