Life of Pi

Yann Martel


After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wide, wild Pacific. The crew of the surviving vessel consists of a hyena, one zebra (with broken leg), an orang-utan, a 450-pound Royal Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker, and Pi - a 16-year-old Indian boy.

As the 'crew' begin to assert their natural places in the food chain, Pi's fear mounts, and he must use all his wit and daring to develop an understanding with his fellow survivors.

Yann Martel's Life of Pi is a transformative novel, an astonishing work of imagination that will delight and stun readers in equal measures. It is a triumph of storytelling and a tale that will, as one character puts it, make you believe.
