Reading for a Lifetime Together

Life of Pi

I absolutely loved this book. It had literally everything, from action of a sinking ship, interesting and irrelevant information on sloths, and to religious epiphanies. The story follows Pi, a boy from India who gets caught in the middle of the sea with nothing but a few dangerous animals and a lifeboat. No food. No fresh water. Nothing.

The author did a great job of telling the story, and the ending was probably one of the best I’ve ever read. The only problem that some people have with the book, though, is that it takes awhile to get into the story. Personally, I didn’t find this to be a problem. I loved nearly every word. Some parts of the book were controversial, but the author seemed to make a point of it that it was okay to disagree with Pi or anyone else’s philosophy. Really, that’s what made the book so great.

This book should be considered a classic and should be included in everyone’s private library. The writing was exceptional and gripping, the story intriguing, and the plot astounding. I look forward to reading more of Martel’s books. Take my word for it and pick the book up today.
