Order Life of Pi

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

A book review of “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel This book will challenge your imagination and tempt your curiosity. It actually had me searching to see if there was any truth in it, until I read the final few chapters, and I then understood. It is an adventure similar …

Split Second by David Baldacci
