really liked it

Blimey. About 8 or 9 years ago I read The Life of Pi which I thought was brilliant. Brilliantly written, brilliant storytelling and even now I think it's one of the best books I've ever read.

This is Martel's first novel and it's written in the first person as a sort of autobiography. I don't want to say much more than that as it's a journey through a life that is sometimes sad, sometimes happy and sometimes painful.

The writing is brilliant, and the layout is peculiar in places, almost like a cross between literature and art.

It's very modern and very philosophical. And more than that, I can't say.
