Helpful Score: 3


This is in my top three favorite books of all time. We chose it for our book club, and we are still talking about it a year later.

The author gives such a loving and fresh look at humankind and a view of the Divine. There are moments in which the agony of Pi (the powerful young protagonist) is so keenly felt that I found myself sitting the book down and contemplating the experience as if it were my own.

This is a beautiful novel. The only portion of the book in which I had trouble identifying with was the visit to the island. Along with my book club friends, I did not understand what the author was trying to convey.

Still, if I only could take three books with me, Life of Pi would be one of them.
