Throughout 2013, I’m going to be hosting some reviews written by a friend. Said friend wishes to remain anonymous (I think they’re intimidated by the vast amount of readers I have *snorts*), so from now on they are going to be known as Reviewer X. I hope you enjoy reading X’s reviews. They’re certainly written in a different style to mine!
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Release Date: November 1, 2012 (This edition)
Publisher: Canongate (This edition)
Rating: 5 stars
Everyone should read this book at least once in their life, I think. Not just because it’s beautifully written, filled with vivid, surreal imagery or that the writing is poetic, meaningful and and descriptive, although these are good reasons in themselves. Rather, everyone should read this book because it’s that rare kind of literature wherein each reader can take away something different and still be moved deeply by the story. Life of Pi, if you let it, will open your eyes to a deeper understanding of human nature, science and that eternal question of faith.
