I recently finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel.
I will admit, it took me a month or two to get through a third of the book. I finished the rest in a day and a half. If you haven't read it, I won't spoil it for you.
All I'll say is that usually I like to get to that magical moment when you can't put the book down sooner, but it was worth the wait!
Next up is Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee (Pam's recommendation).
Read anything good lately?
