"The tigers had been fed so did not eat the man"

Yann Martel would appreciate this. Thanks Joseph Britt.
I read The Life of Pi soon after it was published and the story has stuck in my mind ever since.
(Glancing at the reviews I notice they are very mixed...either love it or hate it -- over a thousand of them! I was entranced by the writer's ability to make an unbelievable situation become believable. There were moments of crack-up funny stuff that made me want to laugh out loud, but it helps if you have either been to India, had an Indian friend or two, or have done more than casual reading about India.)
