Author: Yann Martel
Excellent book. When I started reading the book I had serious doubts if a book based largely on animals would keep me engaged. I was pleasantly surprised. Extremely well written and very creative. Hats off to the author for such a wonderful novel. The level of detail with which he captures the teenager (named “Pi”) growing up in India is impressive. The teenager practicises Hinduism, Islam and Christianity! This leads to some interesting musings about religion. The second half of the book is mostly about Pi escape from a sinking ship in a lifeboat with a Tiger, Hyena and Orangutan.
p.s: I read this book quite a while back and I have been meaning to blog this but never got down to it. Now, I can’t remember all the details unfortunately.
