      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    Life of Pi is the story of a young boy who finds himself in a critical position when he is left stranded on a boat in the Pacific. Four animals initially accompany him, but the number comes down to just one, a Bengal tiger called Richard Parker.

    Summary of the Book

    Pi is a young boy from Pondicherry whose father owned a zoo. He believes in God and follows all religions. One day, his father decides that the family is going to move to Canada in an attempt to avoid the political scenario in India. They begin their journey and are accompanied by some of the animals from their zoo. A violent storm leaves Pi stranded on a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena and a Bengal tiger called Richard Parker. The journey teaches Pi plenty about survival and facing his fears.

    Not really

    I started reading this novel with great enthusiasm but almost dragged myself to finish it. Huge disappointment from a 'Man Booker' winner. The book dragged like the length of the sea. No climatic end to summon up the misery I went through to reach it.

    Belief is what bonds you with the Life of Pi!

    Even though the Life of Pi is a fiction, somewhere in the first quarter of the book, Yann Martel makes you believe that it is a biography of someone (Pi) who was born in Pondicherry, India, grew up till his teens, with a zoo in his backyard, and with the political scene in India becoming unstable (1977), the family along with a few animals that remained behind, after selling off most of the zoo inhabitants, boards a Japanese cargo ship to Canada. And after this act of making you believe, all ...

    indeed a story that will make you believe in God

    Truly worth Man Booker prize...

    What a story.. I cant think anyone could write so many chapter about life on a lifeboat..

    It has a perfect blend of a book, at least for me. It has story, it has its spiritual content, it has the interesting aspect about it, and it has - a very impressive part - of facts and knowledge... At the moment, I think I can tame a tiger, if I am stranded with it on a lifeboat surrounded by ocean... If not tame a tiger, I am pretty sure I can live off land, on the wat...

    Thank you Richard Parker

    Life of Pi is simply complex only in the thought process.It is a personal favorite as this book has a life changing effect on you.Your perspective of things change quite visibly.
    Unlike what the Book says it does little in restoring my faith in God,
    but does in restoring my faith in people.

    A blot on booker

    Yann Martel is a master list maker. Throughout the book you find him listing various unrelated things and themes whether you are interested to read them or not, because he had painstakingly collected those information and had to include them in his book to increase its girth; the story had hardly enough substance to make for a decent volume.Its a fantasy story no doubt but you need even more mastery on writing to make a fantasy interesting to adult readers, which Mr Martel sadly lacks. Its an...

    A huge task for Anglee

    Life of pi should be listed in the category of spiritual and not fiction because it is all about keeping the human spirit alive which is always adventurous in the contemporary world.Lets wait and see whether Ang Lee will surmount the task of visually narrating the story.Pi always pins his hopes to the horizon beyond which a life in the form of ship awaits him.In that way this book might remind you how superficial are our whining about not leading a content life. The Bengal tiger Richard Parke...
