Life of Pi

I finished reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. The book has a great story with an very clever ending. I suggest that you read the author’s notes at the begining of the book (doesn’t matter if it’s at the before or after you read the book, there are no spoilers). The book tells the story of with Piscine Patel, a 16 year old boy, who grew up as a Hindu in Pondicherry and took on the additional religions of Christianity and Islam. The first half of the book largly focuses on the hilarity of his multiple religions and him growing up a zoo owner/keepers son. His family relocates to Canada aboard a Japanese ship which sinks at sea. Yadda yadda yadda, I’m terrible at writing book reviews. Bottom line is it’s a great book, an awesome tale of perseverance written in a fun, intelligent and whimsical way.
