one of the best endings to a novel I've ever read
on 27 March 2013
Each time I started to read Life of Pi I left it after a few pages and had to start again. It took me about five or six attempts before I broke through and got into it; and I'm so glad I persevered with it: a truly wonderful book that deserves all its many accolades. I thought the ending was brilliant: one of the best endings to a novel I've ever read. The story is fantastical yet the writing is so good I found it totally credible. The detailed accounts of various aspects of the natural world seem completely plausible and this makes the survival scenes completely plausible too. I think this is a book to return to and re-read and for 20p it must count as the best value book of all time.
