Life of Pi

Life of Pi - Yann Martel Friend of mine told me to read this. Okay, first few chapters have nothing to do with the story. I keep reading, trying to find the story. Then the wreck and a slow story starts. Did not like the flip side! Felt like I struggled through the book to be cheated at the end. I get the point but for me the time invested seemed tainted for me. I think, my friend wanted me to read it so we could both go REALLY? together!
