Hi Suze, my bookclub read that book a few years ago and we had a lively discussion about it (which is recorded here: http://squoy.typepad.com/oh_anne/life_of_pi/index.html) We definitely split into two groups: those who chose to believe and those who didn't and that became as much about our own spirituality as it did about the story.

Elissa, thanks for that very interesting discussion.
I don't know if believing in the tiger was about my 'spirituality' so much as my sense of realism - even if that might not have been real, it seemed realistic to me. Maybe that was the skill of the writing. Whereas the account of the alternative story wasn't as convincing to me. (I don't know what that says about me.)
