"Life of Pi" by Yann Martel

Review written by: Nald Galinato

Book Watch, Vol. 1, Issue 3

Written by Canadian author, Yann Martel, Life of Pi tells the story of an Indian boy, Piscine “Pi” Patel, and how he survived 227 days stranded with a Bengal tiger on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The book won the prestigious Man Booker Prize in 2002 and is currently being set into film by the director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement, Jean Pierre-Jeunet.

Life of Pi explores the powers of fear, faith, and fiction. Experience the unforgiving savagery of the wild through the eyes of Richard Parker (the Bengal tiger). Learn to cling to tomorrow from Pi’s daily struggles of survival. And marvel at the sustaining power of words through Yann Martel’s story.
