Another one of those critically acclaimed books that I just couldn't get into. There seems to be a deeper meaning behind the story, but I couldn't grasp it at all. Might have a go at it again further down the road, but meanwhile it's available to anyone who might appreciate it more.

Synopsis from book:
After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The crew of the surviving vessel consists of a hyena, a zebra (with broken leg), a female orang-utan, a 450 pound Royal Bengal tiger and Pi - a 16-year-old Indian boy. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary pieces of literary fiction of recent years. Yann Martel's Life of Pi is a transformative novel, a dazzling work of imagination that will delight and astound readers in equal measure. It is a triumph of storytelling and a tale that will, as one character puts it, make you believe in God. Can a reader reasonably ask for anything more?

Recieved this book extremely quickly for what was supposed to be land/snail mail. May all my books travel as quickly as this one as it arrived last Thursday 30/6, going to try and find some peaceful moment to tackle this one during the school holidays when I need to escape and hide from the children

Have had several attempts at trying to read this book and have not gotten anywhere. Starting to come to the conclusion that it won awards because people couldn't get it and thought it was rubbish but no one wanted to actually admit that so they gave it an award instead. Believe me this does happen as after quite a few years working in and involved in libraries I have seen it happen quite a lot. Will have one more go at it this weekend and then I'll pass it along
