An incredible and unbelievable story that is unique and that's what kept me turning the pages. It is well deserved to be a classic, a film and to be generally held in high regard. I would recommend reading this book.
"Even when God seemed to have abandoned me, he was watching. Even when he seemed indifferent to my suffering, he was watching. And when I was beyond all hope of saving, he gave me rest. Then he gave me a sign to continue my journey." Life of Pi.
