Y is for...Yann Martel


Okay...so this is kind of cheating on my part since I've been basing the challenge on last name, but I'm sticking with this one.  I bring you:  Yann Martel.

Yann Martel
I remember putting off reading Life of Pi for years.  Not because it didn't sound interesting, it did, but because there was so much hype and I was terrified that it would be a letdown.  Thankfully, I finally let one of my dear friends talk me into reading it and I'm so glad I finally caved!  It's a fantastic book.  Martel, a Canadian writer, has won multiple awards for his writing, including the Man Booker Prize for Pi in 2002.  I have yet to read anything else by Martel, though Beatrice and Virgil sounds interesting.  I have also not watched Ang Lee's film version of Pi, though it is in my Netflix queue. 

*Recommendation:  Life of Pi

Who are some of your favorite Y authors?


  1. I still have yet to read it for pretty much the same reason. I've heard good things but is it REALLY that good? Based on your comments here I need to move it further up the "to read" pile :)
