Product Description

Review

"A terrific book... fresh, original, smart, devious, crammed with absorbing lore." Margaret Atwood, Sunday Times "Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise or even ecstasy." The Times "A unique and original story, brilliantly told." Guardian "Its sheer audaciousness, complex originality, breathtaking daring, virtuoso command of the language and imagery make Life of Pi a tour de force... It will stand the test of time." Lisa Jardine (Man Booker Prize judge 2002)"

I bought this book to read on a recent visit overseas. I found myself reading it for hours every evening until I literally could no longer keep my eyes open. It is a truly excellent book. A wonderful yet tragic story told through the eyes of its main character. I found myself laughing and crying, enthralled and disturbed by what I read. Throughout the book is gripping right up until the interesting twist at the end. The book is thought-provoking and does make one think beyond the basic story. An extremely good read. I look forward to reading it again soon.

If you love India and its natives, and enjoy a bit of animal psychology all put together in a particularly intelligent Indian quirky style of writing, then you'll love this book as I did. It took me a while to suss out the identity of Richard Parker but that was part of the enjoyment of the story! I was suprised to find I just couldn't put it down. The only disappointment was the end of the story -but maybe I just didn't want it to end

I have read this book at least half a dozen times. I have had to buy another three copies because I have given it to friends. I am now about to buy the new illustrated, hardback edition (and keep this for myself!)

Yes, the build up is slow but it all makes sense as the book progresses. I can understand people describing the ending as a little bit of a let down but it is one of those books that stays with you for a long time after you have finished it and the ending becomes stonger and more significant the more you think about it!

I would describe this as a modern classic with an inspirational message about the things we most fear in life and how that fear keeps us alive.

I loved it.

I read Life of Pi a couple of years after it was first published. I enjoyed the story and found the dry humour really great. When I read about a competition to design an illustrated edition I was excited and determined to buy a copy, especially after I saw the results of the competition published in a national newspaper. I have not been disappointed, I still like the story and the illustrations are brilliant. I bought it as a gift for my son - I hope he won't notice that I've read it!

Slow to get going and first half of book can be hard work to stay with but book picks up after half way and is good from then on.
