I devoured this book in one sitting! Mr. Martel's easy writing style and attention to detail had me so engrossed, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. This story transported me from the here and now. Time ceased to exist and I was there, struggling to survive the ravages of the Pacific! This book does exactly what any reader wants, it takes you to another place and time. Life of Pi is a wonderful glimpse into a situation most of us will never know, except in a work of fiction, and what a fantastic work this is!

— Burlin, Roanoke

Life of Pi is one of my all-time favorite books. Drawing from religious philosophy, survival narratives such as Adrift by Steven Callahan, and (famously) Max and the Cats by Moacyr Scliar, it is an amazingly creative and complete work of its own. It’s an adventure novel, an allegory, an existential quest. Surreal, haunting, wrenching. Magical. I can’t wait to see the movie. At the time I am writing this, we’ve seen a few stills, and they are gorgeous & intriguing. The film’s release creates a new imperative to read a modern classic. I hope you enjoy it.
