"Life Of Pi" has been challenged and banned due to its religious content. The main character tells how he became Hindu, Islamic and a Christian concurrently. These religions tend to contradict each other in certain aspects. The author did not intend this novel as a mockery of religious belief, rather he meant it only as a young boy finding his spirituality. If you collect banned books, this is one you want on your library shelf.
