I don’t remember reading a book written by a Canadian writer/author. As far as I can mention, “Life of Pi” is the first book I‘d read written by a Canadian author/writer.
Warning: spoilers ahead.
The main character is an Indian boy/teen is stranded on a lifeboat. And three/3 parts, and has/have 100 chapters divide the book.
And I also expect that Manila be mentioned in the book. There are quotable quotes from the book.
