I just finished reading Life of Pi, and loved it! I was so engaged in the story and it made me happy to read it...I loved Pi's character and felt the author really let the reader into his mind and soul. Is there another book I could enjoy as much as this one? I am looking for a new read now!

You could try "The Dolphin People" by Torsten Krol. The Dolphin People

Have you read The Baron in the Trees by Italo Calvino? It has a similarly lovable character who lives out a fantastic adventure. The Baron in the Trees

I would recommend (as I do at every opportunity) The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Link: The Shadow of the Wind )

It's a very different book, though it bears some similarities to Life of Pi: A young male narrator, elements of magic/mysticism and (most importantly) a breathlessly compelling, fluid writing style that drags you into the story and doesn't let go until long after you've finished the book.

How about Don Quixote de la Mancha? Is he a fool or a hero? Are his delusions less true or meaningful than the mundane lives of those around him?

The island was a steal from book that came out 15+ years ago. Written by a well-known author, Scott Smith and its title "The Ruins". The premise was 4 friends go to Central America on Spring Break, someone approaches them about taking a trip to ruins that aren't offered by other tour companies. When they arrive, they are met by hostile Indians, soon, that night, singing comes from the ground (the sign that the vines that are growing will digest their next human).
Edited to add -The Indians weren't really hostile, they meant to frighten the tourists away because they knew they would be eaten as so many of their own had been. They find teeth etc. just like in "The Life of Pi"

Um... any pretentious, annoying, pseudo-literary work of which the plot was actually plagiarized would probably do.
