Life Of Pi by Yann Martel

Life Of Pi

Someday I’m positive I’m going to get asked a trivia question, “Who is Richard Parker?” and I’ll grin with knowing as I proudly assert, “It’s a Bengal tiger who survived 227 days on a life raft, in the Pacific Ocean, with a teenage Indian boy named Pi.”

Doesn’t the concept sound crazy?  Yet that is exactly the point.  The tale woven by Martel (as told by Pi in the novel), is outlandish and startling and wonderful.  It introduces the concept of God and miracles while challenging question and disbelief.

This was a fabulous book, both funny and erudite.  I highly recommend it.
