All of the book groups I've joined have had Life of Pi on their reading list at some point but somehow, I've managed to avoid reading it. It seems like a very odd premise: Pi, son of a zookeeper, survives a sinking ship in a lifeboat loaded with animals, including a tiger. Eventually, the tiger whittles things down to just it and the boy. The book has won all sorts of awards and prestige so you'd think I'd be more excited about reading it…
Here's the teaser:
"Another man was nabbed in the process of stealing a cobra. He was a snake charmer whose own snake had died. Both were saved: the cobra from a life of servitude and bad music, and the man from a possible death bite."
- pg. 30, Life of Pi by Yann Martel
