"Life of Pi" Book Club Discussion

Life of Pi by Yann MartelI really enjoyed Life of Pi by Yann Martel, a remarkable work of fiction. It’s a coming-of-age story about a young man who is forced to share a lifeboat at sea with a full-grown tiger. You’ll learn about animals in the zoo and what happens when they're forced back into the wild, and the courage it takes to face them down when it's just you and them at sea with little food or water. Great adventure storytelling, too. A terrific read while on vacation poolside or at the beach.
