Life of Pi(ece of crap?)

20 Dec

Life of PiLife of Pi by Yann Martel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of my all-time favourites.

See? It’s on my favourites shelf. I even had to make a shelf called favourites, just so I could put it on there.

Edit (Dec 20, 2012): OK. I will have to reread this book and reassess my feelings about it. Several friends on goodreads have rated this book very low, which I find surprising, since our taste in books is generally very similar. I don’t remember finding it boring at all, but it has been maybe five years since I’ve read it. I could be romanticizing the past, and just remembering the vivid parts.

Of course, my favourite parts in the LOTR trilogy were the long, drawn-out description scenes where Tolkien was describing every blade of grass in detail, so perhaps I’m just strange.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this book. See? Boom. Favourites shelf.

I’ll write a better review soon, but if you’re a fan of books like Brave New World, I can’t recommend this book enough.
