What an intriging book from start to finish! Pi's life is truly fascinating and I enjoyed reading everything from the small Pondicherry Zoo (I had NO idea a black leopard could jump 18 feet straight up in the air?!), to his strong religious convictions, to the adventure/horror of becoming a castaway, lost in the dangerous Pacific Ocean with only the company of a deadly Bengal tiger. All the while, Pi adds subtle humor to his stark reality. The end of the book brings relief, happiness and a little sadness for this sweet,loving boy and all that he went through.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a VERY well written book (easy read) on the human experience, fascinating story's, intruiging characters, life and death circumstances, and the most indepth look at the human heart.

I could not put it down.
