I love books! Reading has always been one of my favorite things to do since I was a child. I remember going to the store and heading straight to the book section and always checking out books at the library. Now as an adult, it’s a little more difficult to pick up a book and finish it. Work and life keeps me a little too busy and even though I still go to the bookstore and buy books, I don’t always read them all. The book I’m reading at the moment is Life of Pi by Yann Matel. I’ve actually been reading it for a few months, before the film was released in theaters and I must say it’s quite entertaining. It starts slow but once you get into it, the story really picks up. I’m almost finished and I’m loving every word. It definitely creates a story and you begin to visualize exactly what the character is going through. Below you’ll see the cover of the book and a brief summary. I suggest you pick it up if you’re looking for something new and exciting to read.
Summary: Pi Patel is the son of a zoo keeper in India and his life is turned upside down when his father announces that they’re moving to Canada on a huge freighter with the zoo animals. Pi soon finds himself alone after a shipwreck on a lifeboat with a zebra, hyena, an orangutan and Bengal tiger who are all fighting to survive.
