Jodi was persistent and I finally relented to read Life of Pi by Yann Martel, a book she heartedly recommended. Boy, am I glad she is persistent! Life of Pi is about a young man in India, the son of a zookeeper, who decides that he wants to be Christian, Muslim and Hindu because he loves God and sees value in all these religions. At 16, Pi and his family attempt to immigrate to Canada, taking a ship across the Pacific with many of the zoo’s animals on-board. The ship sinks and Pi continues his travels in a lifeboat with a few other passengers. The story is really about stories, and how the telling of a good story can illuminate greater truths. Wonderful book.
