Life of Pi - Yann Martel - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Life of Pi:

I was shipwrecked with a tiger, and I survived.

My favorite Yann Martel quote from the book:

"When you’ve suffered a great deal in life, each additional pain is both unbearable and trifling."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Can you believe in the wisdom of all religions?

How would you have handled the isolation?

My review of Life of Pi:

Couldn't put it down.

Mind twist at the end.

I believe I would have been seasick.
