Life of Pi
At the end of the novel, the novel said me I would belive in god. But for me, at the end, i only believed in human perseverance. Neither could i find any religious touches to it nor any of the other godly moments. It was a survival tale, a tale of grit and determination and how far it can take you. I'll brand it disturbing.The monk who sold his Ferrari
Sat. Lied down. Walked around. Stood up. Even a reading desk and my favorite music on my PC. Nothing helped me read the book in hand.However hard i tried, i could never read more than 50 - 60 pages of this book. Im not sure if it was only 60 pages I read.
However effort i put in to complete the book, i couldnt. And im not sure why Robin Sharma's book made it to the bestseller list...! I tried giving it a second read, but I dont have enough courage to do so. Not even Tommyknockers with its gigantic 1020 pages troubled me as much. Thats a different story ill compile later.The Alchemist
Not sure again why this made to the best seller list. 'soul of the world', 'omens', 'follow your dreams'...neither could i connect to them nor feel it. I mean it was good read, but not something i would brand as a must read.
I found myself as much lost amidst them as im in discussions reg. abstract modern art.
