Life Of Pi

Ang Lee, the genius behind the 1995 film, Sense and Sensibility, is producing a movie they said was unproduceable. It will be in theaters this Thanksgiving. 

I could have sworn I read this book, but after picking it up again so I'll be ready for the movie, most of the story is unfamiliar to me. Either I'm in early stages of dementia or this was a book I listened to on Audio-CD. I don't retain stories as well if my eyes aren't involved. Does that ever happen to you?

Even if the movie is beyond swoony, the source is always the best place to start. Yann Martel found inspiration to write Life Of Pi from this book. Richard Parker (the tiger) is named after a character in this book. You can find more books by Yann Martel here.

What books did you read before going to see the film adaptation?
