Life of Pi

Yann Martel's story started quite slowly. It took me quite a while to get into it. I nearly gave up on it! But the story gradually grew on me. And a very strange story it was, indeed! I still don't quite know what to believe, having got to the end of it. It's difficult to tell where the lines are between fiction, fictional fact and fact. I suppose that was Martel's intention.

This book was suggested to me as a possible book for my recommended reading list for my students, and I had heard of it before, though I'd never read it. I'm not sure I can recommend it to my students, except possibly some of my more mature older students. But it was worth reading myself.
