From the Publisher:
Pi Patel is sixteen when his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and Pi is left alone on a lifeboat, his only companions stranded zoo animals: a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra, and a Bengal tiger. Soon the tiger dispatches all but Pi; his fear, knowledge, and cunning must guide him to coexist with the tiger for 227 days at sea.
First published ten years ago, Life of Pi took the world by storm, selling millions of copies and hitting every major bestseller list. Now, timed to coincide with the anticipated 3D feature film directed by Ang Lee and starring Tobey Maguire, comes a movie tie-in edition of the book with millions of devoted fans, including Barack Obama, who called it "an elegant proof of God, and the power of storytelling."
