"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:

The beloved and bestselling novel and winner of the Booker Prize, Life of Pi, now in a trade paperback edition with cover art from the major motion picture directed by Ang Lee, set for release in November 2012

Synopsis:

It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.

Once in a while, we stumble upon a book in the most extraordinary ways that they become inevitably etched in our memories. I happen to have felt that way with this one.

Even though by the marketing and the suggestive placement of a guy intertwined in a passionate kiss with a girl that is the cover of this novel plainly could convince someone that this book will be a romantic love story, i do strongly believe, after having read it twice, that it was not. It was not a story of lovers caught in the bustles of courtship and butterflies in the stomach and avalanches of powerful romantic emotions. I certainly believe that what Dex and Emma have is a story of the intricacies of absolute unconditional friendship. Such that we are living in the world where the anticipation of romance is quite inevitable between a woman and a man with such powerful tensions bouncing off each other, we are expected to adhere. This novel was well-crafted to burst out of our established social norms. It probes the mediocrity most of us saddle off our teenage years, the ups and downs of life in the society of make-believe adults, the reality of uncertainties, the crisis of the middle aged and how a lasting friendship could help us pick ourselves up at every awful wrong turn.

Chronicling the lives of our protagonists on their every encounter on the 15th of July for 20 days, we get a glimpse of the unique kind of benevolence shared by two people that is beyond the limits of romantic love.

Take a break from the conventional romantic love story novel and tread through the unlikely relationship of Dex and Emma and forever be moved and inexorable changed.

I read this book cover to cover in two days, considering my hectic schedule that's impressive. The concept of learning about only one day a year for 20 or so years in a potential couple's life was intriguing, thought provoking and easy to relate to. It pulled me in for a good story, let it pull you in too.
