The Cat’s Table By Michael Ondaatje 

I finished this book last week.  It took awhile to sink in, I let the words ruminate in my brain for awhile.  Firstly, well written, I don’t think I would still be thinking about it if it wasn’t.  It’s about an eleven-year old boys adventure on board a ship bound for England.  There were some Huckleberry Finn moments with his motley crew of friends.  This journey across sometimes turbulent waters lasted weeks but the experiences echoed throughout his life.  It ends with dark reveals and unanswered questions.  It’s definitely worth the read.
