    DescriptionAfter 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.

    Review quote
    "This enormously loveable novel is suffused with wonder." The Guardian "Martel's yarn is an unfailingly enjoyable blend of magical realism and Robinson Crusoe." The Independent on Sunday "A hilarious novel, full of clever tricks, amusing asides and grand originality." The Daily Telegraph "A terrific book ... fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore." Margaret Atwood, The Sunday Times
