I bought this book such a long time ago because it seemed like everyone had read it. However, I was hesitant to read it because all I knew was that it was about a boy named Pi that was very religious and ended up on a life boat with a tiger. Despite all the hype, I just didn’t feel much desire to read 300 pages of religious musings. Even the movie didn’t give me any motivation or desire to actually read this. However, I’ve been putting this book off for so long that I finally decided this was going to be the year (actually, I made that choice last year, too, but this year I was going to stick with it).
