DescriptionAfter 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 orang-utan, 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. Yann Martel's "Life of Pi" is a transformative novel, a dazzling work of imagination that will delight and astound readers in equal measure. It is a triumph of storytelling and a tale that will, as one character puts it, make you believe in God.

Reviews for Life of Pi
Very beautiful story about a boy who likes to learn and do as much as he can. A story filled with lots of humor. Pi does alot and loves to believe, and for him he doesn't see any problems between a religion, he just loves god. And it is this love for god that will help him and guide him when he is alone on the lifeboat with the tiger. The only downside of the book is maybe that sometimes it gives a bit to much descriptions but at the end it doesn't bother much anymore cause you just want to keep on reading and find out what is going to happen! Great and touching book! by Inne Van Houdt
God is in details
"Truly, one of the most beautifully descriptive book I have read. Description of belief, food, love and the very life it self takes you to the wonderful world and mind of Pi Patel. Martel's eye to details of life's colour and movements mesmerized me. The things we all feel, was placed eloquently and wonderously by the great Yann Martel.
This book would truly revitalise one's mind and one's thirst for longing and looking for more beauty in life just as Pi has done during such an ordeal.
The greatest and the most funniest part for me was when Pi visits one religion after another, later adoptng all three Islam, Hinduism and Christiany. And the beauty of all the beliefs helped him shape his journey.
If you are to read one book, make it this, though it can get a bit too descriptive but by no means its tidious.
Awesome awesome awesome!!!!!!" by a Book Depository customer
