THE A5 BOOK REVIEW
Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction, Life of Pi is a fantastic tale about Pi Patel, a sixteen year old son of a zookeeper who finds himself in the incomprehensible situation of being adrift and lost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra and a 450-pound tiger named Richard Parker. Pi is a spiritual kid, equally curious about Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, and his epic story of survival and faith while lost at sea is both spellbinding and exhilarating. Pi's exhaustion puts him into a state of delirium that adds a surreal element to the experience, blurring dreams and reality. The novel is sometimes compared to Ernest Hemingway's battle of man versus nature in The Old Man and the Sea. In short, Life of Pi is an epic adventure designed to inspire and intrigue, with a brilliant ending that is both surprising and fulfilling. This book is one of our top recommendations.
