Life of Pi

Extraordinary, undoubtedly. But it's not just that. There's a quality to the narrative that grips you in a manner beyond mere suspense. In fact Martel appears intent to allay suspense with his previews into the future every now and then, at most significant turns. Just before you go round the corner that is.

But I am thankful for the last line to Part One.
This story has a happy ending.
And I'm still not sure if there was indeed a tiger in the boat :S. But yes, I do like the story with the animals better. The other makes the horror unbearable...

Currently: dazed
Listening to: Dido - Stoned

You don't seem to be writing as regularly as you used to.
