Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
# Paperback: 336 pages
# Publisher: Harvest Books; Harvest edition (May 1, 2003)
# Language: English
# ISBN: 0156027321

In Short: Good, but not mind-blowing. Methinks it had the misfortune of being overpimped, which is a very common fate to otherwise decent books. It's about an (East) Indian boy of multiple religious persuations trapped on a life boat with a bengal tigar.

What I liked: the bits about animals and training tigers and anything with biology.

Recommended to: people who don't read a lot but want to read a book so they can talk about it with people who do, my grandmother, and animal lovers.
