Life of Pi

A Vida de Pi - Yann Martel, António Pescada

After reading this I realized one thing. It is much easier to write a review about a book you didn't like than about one that deeply touched you.


For once I'm not going to describe the plot, since I can't think of a way to do it without over simplifying it. Suffice to say that Life of Pi may not be for everyone - it's not, after all, just a simple story, and at times it's closer to philosophy than fiction - but in the right state of mind, it can be breathtaking. It certainly was for me. This book is about transformation, faith, humanity, survival. The writing is beautiful, equal parts crude and delicate. I honestly can't think of anything else to say other than "read with an open mind". Highly recommended.
