Life of PiSunday, August 14, 2011
I just finished reading this book.Very smart work from Yann Martel. Tells the story of an Indian teenager (Pi) that survives the sinking of a cargo ship (in which his family and half a zoo was travelling), finding himself in a lifeboat with a tiger, a hyenna, a zebra and an orangutan. Most of the book is focused on Pi's description of how he managed to avoid being killed by the tiger and survived.
The story has many other levels. Pi's adventure can be described in other ways (I will spare the details to avoid spoilers). The book has many references to religion and zoology, that allow the whole story to be seen with other lenses. It's a very smart work and I recommend it.
