Life of Pi - No Bamboozlement Here
(Life of Pi - No Bamboozlement Here)
“You’re not trying to bamboozle me, are you? . . . There is no bamboozlement here”
Because of its broad topical scope, Martel’s novel 'The Life of Pi', presents an extraordinary opportunity to engage readers in an exciting, diverse adventure. There is the universal lure of tigers, the odyssey of survival, and the combination multidimensional interlocking metaphors, and of course, a discussion of comparative religions. What more could you want from a novel? We will be reading and be discussing Martel's style of writing, his content, and how the novel compares to the film, and of course, we will discuss the idea of whether God is real - the ever-present question within the metaphorical discussion of this beautifully written piece.
