Beatrice and Virgil

Beatrice and Virgil: A Novel Beatrice and Virgil: A Novel by Yann Martel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It’s hard to write a Holocaust novel. Yann Martel knows it, the main character of his novel knows it. So did Martel succeed here? I think he came closer than some of the critics believe. But still, even though the ending almost redeems the book, too much of it I found a bit tedious to get through. Luckily, it was short, so I still managed to enjoy it, just not as much as Life of Pi.
Next up is Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann.
