Beatrice and Virgil


When you have high expectation over something and finally find the reality is not as good as you thought before, it might lead you into disappointment. It happened when I read the latest book of Yann Martel, the author of Life of Pi. Since I really enjoyed Life of Pi, therefore I was so excited when I found the latest book of Yann Martel. Moreover the story also talks about animals just like in Life of Pi, only this time the author focuses on a donkey and a monkey named Beatrice and Virgil. Unfortunately the story is so slow, confusing and lead me nowhere. I did not even finish it. Big disappointment :((

I think Life of Pi is little bit slow too, even when I reach the middle of the story, I was frustated about it. Maybe Life of Pi is my last Yann Martel.

Ana: Whew..I love Life of Pi, yes it's slow but there's 'something' about it that push me to finish the book :)
