The group had difficulty rating this book and all had mixed views.

Some comments in include:

"Tedious in the extreme."
"Too much graphic detail." ('Gory' etc.)
"Unbelievable fairy story"
But also "Extremely well-written, allegorical, 'mind over matter' - and above all 'faith will get us through, with fascinating insights into three cultures/religions."

An excellent read if you enjoy very descriptive prose. The story progresses very slowly but the beauty is in the vivid and explicit dissection of every little part of the canvas. The relationship of a young boy with a tiger in a lifeboat is amazing. My favourite part is the Meercat overrun cannibal island!
If you enjoy fast moving stories this might not suit you but it is worth the effort as it is a great entrancing adventure story which describes how the most dreadful situation may be overcome; it was very uplifting.
