Reading for a Lifetime Together


Life of Pi By Yann Martel

Life of Pi is about a young Indian boy named Pi Patel.  Pi grew up on in India with his father owning a zoo.  Pi’s family then decides to move to Canada, because times have gone bad in India.  They take all sorts of animals along with them, when the boat sinks, leaving no life, except for Pi and a few other animals.  Pi then goes on this long journey on a boat, trapped with several different animals wanting to eat him.  The book tells us what happened on this very long journey, with a very surprising ending at the end.

Now, many people I talked to really enjoyed this book.  I, on the other hand, did not.  I thought it was a very dull reading at times.  I, like most people, hate those types of books.  It took way to long for the story to develop and happen.  It jumped around way too much as well.  When reading a novel or story book, I want to know what happens in the story, not about sloths, or about the entire beliefs of three different religions.  I don’t recommend this book for others to read, unless you get extra credit for reading it.  If you do decide to read this, however, just remember that I warned you about the dullness of the book.

I’m sorry you didn’t like this book. I do agree that the beginning was a little slow, but I thought the middle and end of the book made up for that. Don’t give other readers ideas about extra credit motivation only. 🙂
