The book cover reviews and online reviews are what enticed me to ready this book, as well as it being listed on a recent list of the 100 must read books of all time. But I must add that the first third of the book seemed to include long winded details that made the read boring, but I pushed on. Then on the other hand, the actual event that caused Pi to be on the lifeboat was quick and to the point with very little detail. Once Pi found himself on that lifeboat the book picked up quite a bit, and I found it extremely interesting until the end. I would suggest this book to anyone, however, encourage them to take in the long winded details in the beginning....after all it is those details that make Pi who he was.
