Stunning new edition of this phenomenal Booker Prize-winning, international bestseller.

One boy, one boat, one tiger...After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a 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. The scene is set for one of the most extraordinary and best-loved works of fiction in recent years.

A unique and original story, brilliantly told * Guardian *

Pi is bewitching, the tale both nihilistic and naive, philosophical and playful, deeply moving while always treading the line clear of schmalz * Independent *

Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise, or even ecstasy * The Times *

A terrific book ... fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore -- Margaret Atwood * Sunday Times *

Ultimately uplifting * Daily Mail *

Extraordinary...Life of Pi could renew your faith in the ability of novelists to invest even the most outrageous scenario with plausible life * New York Times Book Review *

Martel's engaging characterization and vivid description enliven and enrich this dreamy, fantastic tale * The Times *

Full of clever tricks, amusing asides and grand originality * Daily Telegraph *
