Life of Pi

By Yann Martel


You’ve all read this, right?  I’m assuming this is the case.  For the few of you who haven’t, why are you still standing here?  Go buy the book.  It’s about a boy who is stranded on a life boat with a full grown Bengal Tiger.  It’s fantastic.

What’s it about?

One boy. One boat. One tiger.     
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 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.
