I read about 40 pages of it and then I just couldn't stand it anymore.

It's nothing but a list of facts about animals in a zoo. And a guy living in India. And religion.

The three most boring things in the world all lumped together to form the World's Worst Book of All Time.

You're going to need to progress further to make it to the actual plot.

Considering they made a movie of it I doubt it could be that bad. *Looks at Twilight* Oh wait...

Funny, I just started it and I find it quite interesting. Though I'm still waiting for some 'action'.

The stuff about the sloths was really cool (in the first three pages or so).

Eh, I thought it was interesting.

(slight spoilers, don't know if you've read this yet :)

I especially liked the part about religion, and the meeting by the sea with his dad and the three others.

Life of Pi isn't a really a book you read solely for entertainment, it's that requires a lot of critical thinking. It's an allegorical novel, so if you take it for its face value, I can completely understand why one might not enjoy it. It has a lot of details that seem very unnecessary and boring, but the book is filled with symbolism and motifs.

I found it quite enjoyable until the ending, which was dreadful.
