The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

Started out promisingly, then for much of the book I felt (and here I'm quoting Mr. Martel's novel) "so bored [I] sank into a state of apathy close to a coma." I didn't like the gimmicky ending, which ruined the book's few subtleties for me. I didn't hate it, but could have done without Life of Pi.
