Wow was pretty much the only word that entered my thoughts after I finished the book. Before I started to read I only knew that it was about a boy who survives a ship sinking and is stuck on a lifeboat with a tiger. That was the limit of my knowledge to the story of Life of Pi.

After I finished reading the Author's Note I was already in love with Yann Martel's writing style, and throughout the story I was reminded repeatedly how captivating Martel's prose is.

I know some people talk about how the book is religious, and I myself tend to shy away from religious books. Yeah, there were talks of God and religions, but it was not preachy at all. I actually enjoyed the first part of the book where Pi discovers and practices Hindu, Christianity, and Muslim together.


I know some people hated the first half of the book, but I actually enjoyed it.  The pacing of the story is slow though.

Life of Pi is a story that i think will stay with me for a while.
