OK, so I have an iPad. And it’s totally beautiful. However 50% of my time on the iPad is spent playing the amazing addictive “DoodleJump” game. The other 50% is a re-re-re-reading of Life of Pi, to see if I am still completely in love with Richard Parker (I am) and whether it’s possible to read a book properly on a screen (it is).
This quote made me think of so many things…
His sole comment on the event was a cranky meow. “I love you!” The words burst out pure and unfettered, infinite. The feeling flooded my chest. “Truly I do. I love you, Richard Parker. If I didn’t have you now, I don’t know what I would do. I don’t think I would make it. No, I wouldn’t. I would die of hopelessness. Don’t give up, Richard Parker, don’t give up. I’ll get you to land, I promise, I promise!”
Such a perfect declaration of love. Makes the botched goodbye even more poignant. I wonder if Pi also dreams of meeting Richard Parker again?
As for my book, well, the image above sums that up pretty well, made me laugh so much!
