Yann Martel
Life of Pi

Life of Pi

From the Los Angeles Times Book Review: "A story to make you believe in the soul-sustaining power of fiction." This is the story of Piscene Patel, a teenage boy from India who survives a shipwreck and subsequently spends 227 on a life raft with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Years later, Pi tells his own story, but a surprise at the end leaves the reader wondering if they really understand what happened on that raft. If you turn immediately back to page 1 and start reading again looking for clues, you're in good company.

Author:

The Washington Post says, "Martel's writing has never been more charming. Fifteen years after The Life of Pi, Yann Martel is taking us on another long journey. Fans will recognize familiar themes, but the itinerary in this imaginative new book is entirely fresh." From the publisher: "In Lisbon in 1904, a young man named Tomás discovers an old journal. It hints at the existence of an extraordinary artifact that—if he can find it—would redefine history. Traveling in one of Europe's earliest automobiles, he sets out in search of this strange treasure. Thirty-five years later, a Portuguese pathologist devoted to the murder mysteries of Agatha Christie finds himself at the center of a mystery of his own and drawn into the consequences of Tomás's quest."
