The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

A very enjoyable book. Probably wouldn't be in the top ten, but very good nonetheless. I think my main problem was that I liked all of the other characters better than the main character. If I had liked her more, it would have been a list topper for sure. The story is really beautiful though.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Ugh. Did not like this book. Although somehow it escaped my 100 page rule. The beginning was very interesting. The way the character explored his own spirituality by participating in three different faiths. I also liked hearing about growing up in India. From then on it's 15 chapters of fish killing and tiger maintenance, then a couple chapters of "What the hell?", and then it wraps up with confusion and dissappointment. Pissed I didn't quit in the fish killing stage.
