Life Of Pi Summary

Life Of Pi by Yann Martel

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 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.

Life Of Pi Reviews

Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise, or even ecstasy * * The Times * *
A terrific book . . . fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore -- Margaret Atwood * * Sunday Times * *
A unique and original story, brilliantly told * * Guardian * *
Full of clever tricks, amusing asides and grand originality * * Daily Telegraph * *
Ultimately uplifting * * Daily Mail * *
Extraordinary...Life of Pi could renew your faith in the ability of novelists to invest even the most outrageous scenario with plausible life * * New York Times Book Review * *
Martel's engaging characterization and vivid description enliven and enrich this dreamy, fantastic tale * * The Times * *
Its appeal has endured, with a worldwide 'readalong' of the book next month and a moniker as a 'modern classic' to boot. The moniker, in this instance, is utterly deserved . . . Pi is bewitching, the tale both nihilistic and naive, philosophical and playful, deeply moving while always treading the line clear of schmalz -- Arifa Akbar * * Independent * *
Martel has a warm way of engaging with the reader -- Robert Burdock * * * *
