BOOK REVIEWS

Life of Pi by Yann Martel (Canongate)

“My suffering left me sad and gloomy”

THE problem with coming to this book after the film event is that the image of the boy and the tiger marooned on a boat has already passed into popular culture, an indelible, all knowing fact. 613 more words

Fiction

Moon in Sky

“The moon was a sharply defined crescent and the sky was perfectly clear.The stars shone with such fierce,contained brilliance that it seemed absurd to call the night dark.”-Yann Martel

Recent Reads

I read 57 books in 2017, although I don’t necessarily count every book I read as a “book.” I also read some business books and some children’s books and things that I didn’t keep track of. 2,455 more words
