Life of Pi
Life of Pi told with a little jumping plotline. The growth of Pi’s religious sense was described with quite witty. Grew up in the modern middle-class India family (call it secular), Pi is always restless in spiritual matters. He studied Christianity and Islam with search his own teacher. He became it a strange teenager because he practice Hindu teachings but also asked for a Catholic baptism and then perform prayers facing the Qiblah each time it time comes.
I NOT recommend reading this book partially, you must read the book gradually. Most contents of the book is about Pi life for seven months in lifeboat with Richard Parker (the Bengal Tiger). Martel Succeed to make us feel the adventures and his loneliness in the middle of Pacific Ocean. I feel what Pi’s feels, my heart pounding, feel his despair and my eyes was teary..
Highly Recommended ebook to download.
