As transformative as it is captivating, Martel's Life of Pi is a magical masterpiece that introduces us to Pi, a 16-year-old boy adrift in a lifeboat with four fellow survivors - a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a terrifying Bengal Tiger. As they navigate the unpredictable waters of the Pacific Ocean, Pi's boundless imagination soon becomes his greatest asset.
