This is a wonderful story! I was sucked in from the beginning with Pi's views on life and religion, all the way to the end of his journey across the sea. Pi is a very inspiring character, and he has stuck with me ever since I finished the story. I'm not sure if I've recommended another book more than this one!

This book has stayed with me since I read the last page. It is one of those amazing books that could never be duplicated. Adrift in the sea of life, I sail with Pi, even in my dreams sometimes.

Although this book was relatively short and a relatively easy read, i was so taken aback and moved by the ending that it has been my favorite book of the decade.

Just an interesting story about a survivor of a shipwreck until the final pages when I found out what the book was really about. It kept my thoughts months after completing it.

"A story to make you believe in the soul-sustaining power of fiction."—Los Angeles Times Book Review

After the 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 wounded zebra, an orangutan—and a 450-pound royal bengal tiger. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary and beloved works of fiction in recent years.

Universally acclaimed upon publication, Life of Pi is a modern classic.

"Synopsis" by ,

“Will the tiger be menacing; will the ocean be threatening; will the island be something out of Frankenstein or will it be an Eden?”—Yann Martel

Life of Pi, first published in 2002, became an international bestseller and remains one of the most extraordinary and popular works of contemporary fiction.

In 2005 an international competition was held to find the perfect artist to illustrate Yann Martels Man Booker Prize-winning novel. From thousands of entrants, Croatian artist Tomislav Torjanac was chosen. This lavishly produced edition features forty of Torjanacs beautiful four-color illustrations, bringing Life of Pi to splendid, eye-popping life.

Tomislav Torjanac says of his illustrations: “My vision of the illustrated edition of Life of Pi is based on paintings from a first persons perspective—Pis perspective. The interpretation of what Pi sees is intermeshed with what he feels and it is shown through [the] use of colors, perspective, symbols, hand gestures, etc.”
