After 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.

Winner of Booker Prize for Fiction 2002.

A unique and original story, brilliantly told. * * Guardian * *
Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise, or even ecstasy. * * The Times * *
A hilarious novel, full of clever tricks, amusing asides and grand originality. * * Daily Telegraph * *
A terrific book . . . fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore. -- Margaret Atwood * * Sunday Times * *
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 * * RobAroundBooks.com * *
Delivered beautifully with warmth and grace -- Emma Kennedy * * Daily Express * *
