After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The crew of the surviving vessel consists of a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orangutan, a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger, and Pi, a 16-year-old Indian boy. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary pieces of literary fiction of recent years.More
"Life of Pi, is a terrific book. It's fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore." (Sunday Times)
"This enormously lovable novel is suffused with wonder. It [probes] the imaginative realm with scientific exactitude, twisting reality to 'bring out its essence'." (The Guardian)
"So magical, so playful, so harrowing and astonishing.... Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise, or even ecstasy." (The Times)
