Book Review: Life of Pi - Yann Martel

Life of Pi - Yann Martel
Life of Pi
After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one solitary lifeboat remains bobbling on the wild, blue Pacific.  The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orangutan...and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger.

The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary works of fiction in recent years.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
I thought this book was well written and very thought provoking.  Pi shows incredible strength and compassion.  Even when things look so bleak he tried his best to survive and provide for Richard Parker.  He goes through and incredible journey, not just physically but emotionally.  I like how we get glimpses of him as an adult living in Canada and as a boy trying to survive on a lifeboat.
