Life of Pi is not always a comfortable read, but it is thought provoking and marvelously written. The adventure story is a page-turner, but the reason this book stays with me is the exploration of religious and philosophical ideas. The second time I read it was even more satisfying than the first.

Terrifying and disturbing at times, as well as joyful and life-affirming, this isn't a book to be read when you are looking for a light read. It is, however, a beautiful journey and worth the discomfort.
