Brilliant BookLife of Pi is an extremely well-written tale of the true grit and determination of a survivor. Once you start, its hard to put down this book. The language is simple, flowing and easy. It portrays the courage of a 16 year old boy in the face of terrible calamity and just his will to survive. It could easily be a true story. I would rate is as one of the best books ever read. No wonder it won the Man Booker prize.

Amazing Amazing Amazing. And more amazing.Filled with depth, wonder, and astonishing clarity, Yann Martel has weaved an unbelievable tale. His imagination is expansive, narration brilliant, characterization beyond words. Too good. Too great. Must read. Raw, original, awesome.

Not reallyI started reading this novel with great enthusiasm but almost dragged myself to finish it. Huge disappointment from a 'Man Booker' winner. The book dragged like the length of the sea. No climatic end to summon up the misery I went through to reach it.
