    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.

    Amazing!

    Life of Pi written by Yann Martel is an interesting, engrossing story of Pi Patel who withstood the harsh realities of Life on a makeshift boat.

    Details of what he ate and how he kept himself alive sometime makes you wonder if that is humaly possible.

    Movie Cast Away will give a better picture for those who are yet to read this brilliant book.

    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...

    Good Read

    I read the book some times back. I loved the book for the amazing narration of the author. The author played with the words so nicely that the entire story becomes prominent in front of our eyes. It`s a great read and a definite page turner.

    Easy and well written, ideal for beginners.

    A very well written book. But a bit slow at a few places. The good thing is that there are not many of such places and they are followed by extremely good sections. I would recommend this book for those who are just into reading for the language is flowing and the story keep you glued. Enjoyed reading this.

    Which story makes you believe in GOD. The one you like or The one which is true.

    First of all Thanx Flipkart to deliver the book before time. As usual FK guys are superb. Reasonable price great service.

    PERFECT BOOKER WINNER

    the composition of this one left me wanting more. i can't write much about this but will recommend it to all that loves serious writings and those whose taste is different and like light reading shouldn't not buy this as it will be a waste of money to them. those type of readers but this kind of books and give it a low ratings.

    Yann Martel is pretty darn good.The way he narrates the story is well and neat. I enjoyed the book very much and to be frank I thought myself as the protagonist in some areas of the story.
