The Life of Pi by Yann Martel Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Life of Pi is an interesting book. As you can see from the cover it is about a 16 year old Indian boy that survives 227 days out at see with a Tiger. It tugged at my heart strings and had me wanting to jump into the book and do something about some of the things the boys was going through. I learned a lot about survival out at sea for long periods of time. It threw me for a loop several times. I was never bored. I could have sat and read through the whole thing in one day had I had the opportunity. Maybe that wouldn´t be a good idea though. You sort of have to process this one in between each reading session. Was a bit disappointed in how little it touched on the 3 religions that the boy believed in all at once. As a person that struggles to believe in one religion it was interesting to read about someone that believed in 3. I really wanted the book to go into detail on how they all worked together.
This book is on the list of 1001 books to read before you die and I read it as a read along with my friends on a Ravelry Forum. I really love discussing these books with these intelligent ladies.
