I admittedly only saw the movie-- though the book was recommended to me long before the movie came out-- but I'm sure the book's amazing.
The movie was breathtaking, as well. I don't know whether it did the book justice, but it was an excellent movie, to say the least.

considering the main characters are a boy and a male tiger stranded in a boat in the middle of the ocean, probably not.

The ending of this book was so amazing and shocking...I was left speechless....when people take the ending so literally, and skip over the meaning and just say "Wow the tiger left, how dumb" it makes me want to hit them with a big chunk of understanding.

This illustration is so great. I love the red waters of the ocean, and how big and hulking the tiger looks. Sometimes you forget how huge those things are. The emaciated look of Piscine is a nice touch too. It is hard for me to remember the state he was in sometimes. Simply because so much went on. Or...so much "didn't" go on. :P

I just got done reading that book for one of my college classes. It's really good, but man, is it weird. Half the time, I don't know if he's telling the truth or if he's merely hallucinating.

Nice job on the illustration! The redness of the water seems very symbolic.

I never finished this book, for whatever reason I just couldn't get into it and thus never got through it. It has such great critiques everywhere though that I am determined to one day pick it back up, start from the beginning and give it another go. I see the author has a new novel out too now.
