Beatrice and Virgil

by Yann Martel


Why Read?:  I know Yann Martel is famous for his book Life of Pi, which was an amazing read with an ending that haunts you for years afterward, but my favorite book by him is Beatrice and Virgil. His ability to call forth latent emotions with the simplistic story of a donkey and howler monkey that set forth on an epic journey is nothing short of astounding. The story is both philosophical and emotional. I was deeply affected by this story and think that you will be, too.
