Life of Pi
Books | Fiction / Sea Stories
Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.

"I’ve been recommending Under the Whispering Door to everyone! Do you have a good recommendation for me?"
"The beginning will be rough if you’re not religious, though this book was insanely well-written and thorough. Yann Martel did some excellent research and it shows. Part two, where every chapter held a lot of the same things, still kept me hooked. There are hundreds of moments in this book that intrigued me. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adventure and unique storytelling. "
"I never read a book quite like this one! It is original and a great book club pick."
