Hey, I'm a freshmen from a high school near you (that's what we're told to say)and Thanks for commenting on my page! I've actually just finished reading Life of PI, and I must say that it's a very well written book! The way that reality and fiction seem to coexist without becoming too overwhelming and inconcievable shows that the author is really talented.
You see, (sorry, I'm making this a pretty long comment) the fact that the kid is stranded out at sea for over 200 days on a LIFE boat (not a full size boat) with a tiger would make many raise an eyebrow. But, certain events in the story (even the actual survival no less) seem unable to understand because you don't really know at some points whether it's delusional drabble from an old man, or the truth. Some horrors that go on could actually be the author supressing old memories with something a little more mysterious and hair raising. but, the ending is really good, and if you think you're up to it, you should definately give it a try!
