Life of Pi – Yann Martel. This is the wonderfully fascinating and readable story of Pi Patel, the only surviving member of the Patel clan after a ship wreck on the way from India to Canada. The prose flows along at a rapid rate and the book is practically impossible to put down. Martel seems to imply this is actually a real story he picked up but even if so there is some strange embellishment that goes on and a wonderful twist in the tale at the end. Another must read I’m afraid – ask me if you can borrow it!
