I'll be honest; I was just about finished with the book and not too impressed. There were beautiful passages and moments, but it all seemed too surreal and my rational, reasonable mind had issues with the story. Then I hit chapter 99 of 100. Within a few passages, my entire view of the book changed and in some ways, I changed too. Excellent book. I need time to think about it and talk with other readers of the book, but it really made me think. It was a great read to follow up Cloud Atlas, which I had just read before picking up Life of Pi.
