Summer Books
17. The Philosophical Strangler, by Eric Flint - A free e-book. Treo books are useful for travel, but while this was amusing it was not great.

16. The Life of Pi, by Yann Martel - Interesting story about an Indian boy shipwrecked in a lifeboat with a tiger. Religion, zoology, and humor combine to tell a captivating story. excerpt: "The reason death sticks so closely to life isn't biological necessity -- it's envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a possessive love that grabs at what it can."

Life of Pi is interesting. It stuck with me for quite a long time.

Sorry you didn't like it, but glad you're reading them.

Pi was okay, but I liked Strangler better. Heard Jeunet was going to make a movie of Pi....
