This story will make you believe in God
This one line from the book that made me so curious about what’s in it. The fact that I didn’t know what to expect and had no idea where the story would bring us until about 1/3 of the book threw nice surprises at me. (The copy that I had didn’t have the cover and I didn’t read any review prior to the reading.)
The first few chapters felt a bit slow. But after a while, I couldn’t put it down because it’s so damn interesting. A lot of events are simply hilarious and ironically funny.
In short, this is a story about a child stranded in a rescue boat with a Bengal Tiger. And he survived. One of the strongest reason is that he’s a child of a zookeeper, which makes him knows a lot about animals.
There’s one part of the story that I love so much, but I can’t say here to avoid any spoiler. It’s probably one aspect that’s the most unbelievable, but for me it’s simply magical. (If you read this book, ask me which part! :)
Nothing actually religious in this story. So far from that. It’s about a very extra-ordinary experience. And like usual, I really want, and end up, to believe that it’s a true story :)
