Praise for The High Mountains of Portugal

High MountainsAn intriguing novel by Life of Pi author Yann Martel had everyone at Pageturners Book Discussion Group talking. The story is divided into three parts and there were varying differences of view about each part – Homeless, Homeward and Home. We read lots of quotes from the book as we enjoyed the writing style so much. Comments included: very original thoughts and construction, quite a bit of humour, stories well linked, about loss and grief, about religion, allegory and fable, great visuals, the third part was most appealing, it had a melancholy tone, the bit about the car went onto too long,  beautiful descriptive writing. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday 8th June to talk about the longlisted books for the Miles Franklin Literary Award.
