An incredible and unbelievable story that is unique and that's what kept me turning the pages. It is well deserved to be a classic, a film and to be generally held in high regard. I would recommend reading this book.

Ang Lee directed a piece of cinematic beauty here which was very close to the novel. A lovely piece of fantasy with a subtle twist

Life of Pi by Yann Martel - The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes. The ship sinks. Pi finds himself alone in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. (Bilbary Town Library: Good for Readers, Good for Libraries)

Life of Pi...Enjoyed the book but not sure how I feel about it being a movie! I guess I'll have to watch it to decide :)

A book about the power of storytelling and the importance of the imagination. Also packed with useful tips on interacting with tigers.

Life of Pi - Yann Martel This has lay around my room for several years now and it was only the other day that I picked it up (after all the hype of the film) and within a few pages was hooked!
