Books Bested: 2007

By Shanathalas
Life of Pi
by Yann Martel

Jaime gave me this fantastic book for Christmas. Winner of the Man Booker Prize for 2002, this harrowing yet vastly entertaining novel tells the story of Piscine Molitor Patel, a devout Christian, Hindu, Muslim and zoologist. Imagine a book made from the movies Gandhi, The Ghost and the Darkness and Castaway. The narrator says this story will make you believe in God. Though I would not go that far, I will say that it makes one reflect on one's own spirituality and beliefs. I recommend this book highly; in fact this is now officially one of my favourite ever novels.
