Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

Story of a boy who accidentally brings a Bengal tiger onto his lifeboat. Kind of an amazing survival story - 227 (or so) days at see. In the end he tell an alternative story to the Japanese investigators who don't believe his animal story. Both are hard to believe but I'd much rather believe the animal story. Probably because I don't want to hear more stories about how brutal humans can be.

God and Harvey Grosbeck

by Gilbert Millstein

Took me ages to finish this book. But I did read "Life of Pi" in between (during my trip to NC and PR). Serves me right for judging a book by it's cover. A really nice cover. The book was nice too, but I think it was hard for me because it used a very rich vocabulary and there were a lot of words that were unfamiliar to me. Someone less lazy than I would have used this opportunity to expand their vocabulary...
