"Um... Sue? Why are you reading a math book on your Christmas holiday?"
"What? Oh, it's not that kind of pi."
"Well then the idiot spelled 'pie' wrong. I'd be embarrassed to be seen reading a book with a typo in the title."
"It's not about that kind of pie either."
"What's it about then?"
"I can't tell you, it would ruin it for you. You'll just have to read it for yourself."
So, in conclusion: thank you to my sister Sue for introducing me to the Life of Pi and thanks very much to Mr. Martel for writing such a fascinating math book.
