After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orangutan - and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger.Der 16-jährige Pi Patel, Sohn eines Zoodirektors, treibt monatelang mit einem Rettungsboot auf dem Pazifik, mit einem bengalischen Tiger als einzigem Reisegefährten. Es ist nicht ganz einfach den seekranken Tiger in Schach zu halten und allen Gefahren zu trotzen.Summary Since it won the 2002 Booker Prize, this title tells a tale of disaster at sea. It is both a boys' own adventure (for grown-ups) and a meditation on faith and the value of religious metaphor, it is one of the most extraordinary and original novels of recent times. In a new format, with a step-back cover, and with a new reading group guide, this is the ultimate edition of the book that is a perennial reading group favourite, and was recently featured in the Waterstone's list of the top 20 books of all time in the "Daily Telegraph".Review Review * A unique and original story, brilliantly told. Guardian * Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise, or even ecstasy. The Times * A hilarious novel, full of clever tricks, amusing asides and grand originality. Daily Telegraph * A terrific book...fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore. -- Margaret Atwood Sunday Times * Extraordinary...Life of Pi could renew your faith in the ability of novelists to invest even the most outrageous scenario with plausible life. New York Times Book ReviewBiography Yann Martel was born in Spain in 1963, of Canadian parents.
