I think it would be fine for a year-old. One of the best things about reading is to be able to re-read a book again and again, getting different meanings out of it every time. And who knows? Also, I generally think that people should read what they want to read, regardless of age--kids and people who love reading usually know enough to police themselves. That being said, I'm not telling you what to do with your child--just giving my opinion.
Steven Apr 03, AM I want to know what you think, is the story he told true or is it his mind tricking him???? I think it is all up to you to decide which story you want to believe. When I finished this book it made me crazy for days trying to look up which story is the actual truth. But I then realized that it is all up to you. The choice you make however can mean a few things, it represents which one sounds better obviously, or it represents how to make choices in life. Then all of a sudden a story that only lasts for a few pages comes up that makes us confused.
Why did the tiger walk into the jungle without looking back saying good-bye at Pi? Laraine Jul 02, PM I think that the tiger represented God he saved Pi's life so perhaps the tiger never looked back and never said good-bye because they will meet again. I welcome other interpretations. The tiger WAS part of Pi. It was that part--the wildness, connection to nature, and the basic animal instinct--that allowed him to survive.
