SYNOPSIS: After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orang-utan…and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger.
At a young age, I remember walking through my school library and picking Life of Pi to read. The title intrigued me. I have always chosen new novels by browsing through titles that instantly catches my eye. Life of Pi was one of them. Right away, I knew the novel was about someone called Pi. I thought to myself that Pi was a very strange name and I wanted to know more about the person. So I checked out the book.
