The Life of Pi - August 24th 2012, 11:04 PM

The Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I have to read it over the summer before freshmen year because I got into AP english. I have about 10 days left to read it (okay, I procrastinate sometimes) but I've already read the Sparknotes so I pretty much know a lot about it. Now I just have to read the real thing haha (: Anyways, if any of you read it for school, what were some of the activities/questions/etc. you guys were asked to do with the book?

I didn't read it for school but it's on my list of books to read for fun.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooood morning! I had to study it and I do love the book but we did the book for school and paid special attention to its notion of "Telling Stories" but now, fuck "telling stories", it's an awesome book haha.

But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

I did it on my free will.

I loved every minute of it.
(I'm pretty sure there's a movie of it coming out this year.)

I do have one question for every reader of it, but it is a spoiler, but also a good question to answer to prove you read and understand the book.

In the epilogue, which tale was real: The animal one, or the human one?
My teacher actually asked me this one. I wound up submitting a small essay with proof on my opinion of it. Bonus marks were won that day.
