Regarding Life of Pi, I suppose it depends on how one interprets the book. In spoiler for those who have not read it:
The Kite Runner go my thumps down because the writing was bad; a soapy tale with unrealistic characters and portrayals. On retrospect I probably should not have eliminated it. I guess it is one of the books that fit the category, but that I would never nominate or vote for.
