Good Points
It does make you laugh, even on public transport.

Bad Points
Tiresome.

General Comments
Yann Martel, Life of Pi Review: At times, I was completely taken back by the almost pure accuracy of this story as the details seemed so true in some aspects. I was almost sure this story was actually real.



However, I got extremely bored as another day went by on the lonesome boat. As if I can feel Pi's character tearing his hair out because of the mundane days passing by.



I haven't read all of it. Mainly because I convinced myself that I was just not in the mood to read this.



I admit, I skimmed through the beginning like there was no tomorrow. It made you want to turn the page and I was in a state of spiritual bliss, at times. However, maybe being the agnostic that I am, it soon lost it's interesting spark.



I may finish reading it, I may not. Not to be so harsh, but maybe I will carry on when I'm needing of something to kill time.

With all due respect...if you do not read the last twenty pages and they don't break your heart then I'll be really, really surprised.

I have to agree with tripsterr... this is a great book, and the end really takes it up a level. One of the best books I read in a long time!
