Just watched "Life of Pi". Not for everyone, but I liked it. Director Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's "L'histoire de Pi" based on Moacyr Scliar's novella "Max and the Cats, with a wicked twist. Rudyard Kipling's the "Jungle Book" meets the true story of the "Mignonette" as anyone familiar with Maritime Law or Contracts will tell you. LOL
I read a fair bit but not all books stay with me the way "Life of Pi" has done. While I was reading it I remember thinking that this could never be made into a film. In walks Ang Lee! Life of Pi Trailer 2 Official
Life of Pi... "Even when God seemed to have abandoned me, he was watching. Even when he seemed indifferent to my suffering, he was watching. And when I was beyond all hope of saving, he gave me rest. Then he gave me a sign to continue my journey."
