Hi guys! It’s my last Throwback Thursday of the year! How crazy is that, this also happens to be the last blog post of 2016 for me! It’s definitely been a good blogging year; I’d like to think it was better than 2015, and I hope to only get better in 2017!
That being said I hope you all have a Happy New Year, stay safe out there! 🙂
In today’s Throwback I’ll be looking at Yann Martel’s novel Life of Pi.
I probably never would have read this if I hadn’t of taken a library trip with this guy I was friends with back in first year university. I was actually looking for more Stephen King to read (this was my big SK period) when he put this on top of my pile and told me I should read it because it was really good. I have to say he was right; it was good.
Read: June 2012
Rating: Apparently I didn’t rate it on Goodreads (HA 😝) but I would rate it 4 Stars
Life of Pi by: Yann Martel: The life of a young boy by the name of Pi Patel and his journey though the sea. When he and his family are to move to Canada from India all goes wrong. The boat that they were on sinks, and Pi is a survivor as he battles his way through the sea with a tiger on board a lifeboat. It’s a story worth reading about, a story that never gets dull, though it may make the reader feel a little tired, but you’ll read to figure out his way of surviving. The book is filled with insights to religion and how that can help you. Definitely worth the read, it’s told in first person narrative with some chapters in the point of view from the author to give insight to Pi’s life now.
