Life of Pi by Yann Martel

I gave this book 5/5 stars

This book was just, wow. This is a very deep book and deserved the award(s?) it got. Yes, the majority of the book is about a boy stuck on a boat with a tiger but it is much more then that. 178 more words


Life of Pi Book Review

I read Life of Pi believing it was a real story. And it was. It was so real.

Okay, okay, so a 15-year-old Indian boy didn’t actually survive on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific for 227 days with a full-grown tiger but Yann Martel certainly makes it feel that way. 572 more words
