Book group - Life of Pi



In July, our book group turned to Life of Pi by Yann Martel. We chose this book because nearly everyone in the group owned this book, but not one of us has read it and so felt a book group discussion was the perfect way to get us reading!

Having been a Man Book Prize Winner in 2002, we found a number of different questions online and picked and chose from them.  Our main sources were:

The Guardian Book Group had also discussed it and you can find parts one, two and three linked.

Of course, many of us had read Jamrach's Menagerie for book group first and because of that we asked the following questions:
  • What are the similarities and differences between the books?
  • Has Carol Birch been influenced by Life of Pi and how?
  • Do you think reading Jamrach's Menagerie first affected the reading of Life of Pi and if so, was it for the better or worse?
  • Which book did you prefer and why?

Have you read either Life of Pi or Jamrach's Menagerie? Let us know what you thought by commenting below.
