    @dan1 The character in the novel names the Tiger because he notices the prevalence of shipwrecked figures throughout history and literature that have been named "Richard Parker."

    I remember reading this my freshman year (I'm a senior now). It'll be interesting to see how they play out the big "twist".

    A bengal tiger named Richard Parker? Why does the tiger have such a whitey name? :P

    I've been following this one closely for the past year or so. As much as I love Ang Lee, however, he's the epitome of hit or miss. This, I think, will prove to be an example of the latter.
