Description

One boy, one boat, one tiger . . . After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orang-utan -- and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary and best-loved works of fiction in recent years.

    The film is more than good, the book is better. Pi is looking for answers about the purpose of life and he searches for a higher power. He looks into the eyes of a tiger and discovers a spiritual connection between them that enables both to survive nature's onslaughts. His resourcefulness and compassion is rewarded and he learns to respect life in all its forms.
  • Still one of the best books ever

    Fantastical and rich novel - thrilling and colourful from beginning to the end. Even years after reading it, it still provokes thoughts of unimaginable adventure.
  • Depressing!

    I picked up this book, because I had heard so much about it, and it had been made into a film. If a book makes itself into a film, it has to be good, right? Frankly, this is the most depressing fiction book I have ever read! While the author writes in such detail, it doesn't deserve the raves that it has received. I wouldn't recommend anyone else to read this, unless they feel like attempting suicide halfway through reading this! I got so depressed that I put it down many times, and almost didn't pick it up again. As a result, I began to read so fast, just so that I could get through it, finish it, and not be depressed anymore. And no, I don't want to see the film!

    A book that reminds you that nothing is impossible even when life takes you to the depths of despair - a really great read

    Having spoken to a friend who had seen the film, said that I should read the book before watching the film. I found the book very interesting and could hardly put it down. Now off to watch the film..

    One of the most astonishing book I have ever read. I had previously read his Beatrice and Virgil which I found interesting because Martel is consummate writer but was put off by his Life of Pi, but when I finally came to reading it I couldn't put it down. His style of writing is very lucid and for me very clear and memorable and will stay in my memory for a long time. No wonder it won the Booker Prize. Do read it if you come across it!

    Wanted to read this before i saw the film. Eventually finished it. Not my cup of tea. Not going to bother with the film.

    "Dry yeastless factuality" is not for me. I too have a life full of Bengal tigers. Definitely a book for those capable of spirituality.
  • Enjoyable

    I picked up this book with uncertainty as to whether this was my type of book. It was told in a jovial manner by the main protagonist which I did thoroughly enjoy with its only fault being a rather dull mid section but maybe that's the nature of being lost at sea.

    A beautifully written, thought provoking story of spirit, belief and imagination.
