Life of Pi

Life of Pi - Yann Martel Full review over at the SFF Book ReviewWhat an adventure. I have stayed away from this book for many years, because its subject matter - a boy in a lifeboat with a tiger, thinking about religion - really put me off. I'm glad I'm so susceptible to visual media, because the trailer for the upcoming movie made me want to read the book anyways. And I am so glad I did.That whole faith-level put aside, this is a beautiful story with a strong protagonist and so many moments that made me "feel all the things" as John Green fans will call it. I still don't believe in god, but I do believe in the power of storytelling and of the written word.This is a story about the amazing capacity of humans to survive the worst possible trauma and struggles. And to turn it into a beautiful tale.Recommended without reservations to anyone. I can't wait for the movie.
