Has anyone read 'The Life of Pi'?

Two years ago I've watched the movie to the novel and really enjoyed the pictures, but also the story. Now I'm thinking of reading the novel too. Is it worth reading it?

I found it boring, but I think most people liked it.
I did do a great themed release though, outside a Mathematics Department, close to where I worked.

I hope this link works. The site must be being worked on, because weird things are happening.

There's a thread on this here ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/485876/ ), with comments about book and movie.

I enjoyed the book, and thought the movie was... OK; it had stunning visuals, but I found that I enjoyed reading the story more than watching it. Not sure how I'd feel if I'd seen the movie first, but I'd probably have wanted to read the book, so I'd say go for it!

Thanks for the link - I've been searching the forum for a thread to that book, but must have missed that one.

That's why I've been waiting for two years, so that I don't have too many detailed visuals from the movie on my mind anymore. I think, one shouldn't read the book right after the movie or the other way round...

I read the book first, some years before the movie was released. I really loved this book. I didn't want it to end. The movie was also great. fantastic visually.

My opion

The story's content is same movie. I think you watched fim and now reading story, it won't interest.

If anyone wants to read the book, I'm hosting a book ray: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/520255

Haven't read it myself, though. Only seen the movie. That's enough for me.
