"Life of Pi" by Yann Martel

Life of Pi: Deluxe Illustrated EditionRead in November – December 2007 (after my Wedding)

Simple novel by Yann Martel that describes the story of a young man as he survives on a boat with a tiger.  The main character is originally from India and is the son of a zookeeper.  The story unfolds and the main character has to devise ways to survive while on the boat with the tiger.  There are a few other characters, with the narration always from that of the main character, Pi.

This book was great to read for multiple reasons for me – first was the narrator’s point of view and his perspective is really enjoyable to follow.  Second, the story covers many different topics (and places) and I found myself introspecting through this book as much as following along with the characters.

Highly recommended.
