15 Day Book Blogger Challenge - Day 13

Day 13: Describe one underappreciated book EVERYONE should read

Ooh this is a toughie. At first I didn't know what one to pick. Should I go with a fantasy, scifi, etc. Finally I realized the obvious choice for me:

"A boy of many faiths. A 450-pound bengal tiger. A shipwreck. A lifeboat. The pacific ocean."

Life of Pi was a stunning book. I don't even know where to start to describe this book. It gripped me. I read it in a day and a half, and only because I had to go to bed. I borrowed the illustrated version and the illustrations added to the book's beauty.

I think everyone should read this. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the book is AMAZING!
