I think any animal lover will enjoy this book. It chronicles a boy and an elephant born on the same day. Their journey takes them from Germany to India and finally the U. S. Even if only half of the story is true, it would still be pretty amazing. I...more

I really enjoyed this book. Considering 80% of it took place on a boat with just two characters, it was surprisingly entertaining. Pi was such a great character with an almost unbelievable back story. There is certainly a lot to discuss with the book...more

I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first. Takes a bit of time to get into, but lots of fun turns of fate for Katniss. I also enjoyed getting to know Finnick, what a great character!

This book was chosen for my faculty reading group and since it has been the only book I've read in the last 3 months, I'm gonna go ahead and review it. It is non-fiction and basically takes the stance that women get less than men (money, status, etc)...more
