Oh, good.
I'm always glad to know I'm not alone in my insanity.

You might still not want to watch/read “Life of Pi”, but actually it’s not exactly an animal story. IMO it‘s got more in common with…

OK, here comes the SPOILER—Don’t read on if you didn’t want to know

…“Liar” than “Old Yeller”.

Just saying.

Maridesce, you are my hero. Thank you for that.

The Life of Pi is a great book, and it isn't exactly what the premise makes it sound like. The movie looks a lot different from the book though. The book wasn't about a friendship forming between the boy and the tiger, and in fact Yann Martel was against that sort of romanticizing of the relationship between a person and an animal. I'll probably still watch it.

Maridesce

Yes, it will be interesting to see whether – as the trailer seems to suggest – the movie just took the animal story and made a film of it. Or if they just made the trailer that way so as not to spoiler the other side of the story.

I refuse to read/watch anything that might have animals dying (being forced to read and watch Where the Red Fern Grows in 6th grade is something I still haven't recovered from), but I read Life of Pi on someone's recommendation. I have to say, it wasn't too bad (with the animals and everything). But I was not of fan of the ending. I think it's worth the read, though. It definitely leaves you thinking.
