Yesterday, I was aked what the funda of ‘Life of Pi’ was… Yann Martel. Life of Pi does not have a funda to it. It is like the Alchemist; childs play and empty philosophy. At best it is the fanciful tale of a yound lad and his misadventures complete with religious scuffles, zebras, tigers and being marooned at sea. If I had to find a ‘funda’… then it would have to be a vague relation to ‘anthropomorphosis’…. the world isn’t only Humans you know….
