i agree with Carla in the above review. great book!! by Nicholas Williams
A week after finishing Life of Pi I'm still a bit at a loss for words to review it as it deserves---I mean, THIS BOOK. I never thought it was going to blow my mind as it did and when that happens it's always extremely difficult for me to put into words exactly what the book in question did to me.
The whole story is one incredible journey, not only because of Pi's castaway condition, but also because I learned so much about other cultures, religions, and mostly about animals and animal behavior---all this in a way that no class could ever dream to teach me.
Although I won't be able to fully express my admiration for what goes on in Life of Pi, I have to point out my two favorite things about it, and they were, 1. the stunning, perfect, flawless writing---seriously, even the long list of items on the survival kit and various other provisions had its appeal; and 2. the author's sharp, genius, made-me-laugh-out-loud-several-times sense of humor---I want to befriend this person and have four, five, six hours long chats with him.
I'm not going to lie though, there were a couple of moments that almost made me stop reading, I honestly did not see those horrifying scenes coming, but I'm glad that I managed to keep on reading and find out how, when, where Pi's journey was going to end. That said, the last fifty pages or so made such a mess out of my brain that I'm still trying to put it back together properly.
Without a doubt, one of the best books of the year for me, which means I RECOMMEND IT, even if I understand this is one of those books one either loves or hates with a passion.
