WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 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 scene is set for one of the most extraordinary and beloved works of fiction in recent years.

    " I tried to read this book about 3-4 times when it first came out. I could NOT get interested in it. But I just listened to it as an audiobook and I loved it! I can see why it was/is such a popular book for book clubs: so much to discuss in it. "

    " Life of pi is just a little bit slow but entertaining enough to keep reading. The interesting part is at the end of the book and make you wonder for a few days after that... that's something I like, reflecting on a book for a few days, anable to read something else... "

    " This book was excellent. I really liked how Pi was able to escape from the sinking ship and survive on his own. Even though he was the only human, he would not have been able to stay alive if it weren't for Richard Parker. The bond between the adult tiger and this boy was unbelievable. Richard Parker ultimately saved Pi's life and that is what made the story so enjoyable to read. "

    " I usually read crime/mysteries so this was not my type of book, but i thought i would give it a try unfortunately by chapter six i had had enough so gave up. "

    " After seeing the film, I decided to give this book another go. I managed to finish it this time. Some parts I liked, some - I did not. I liked the story with the animals better than the story with humans. "

    " I found this a bit of a slog really. Lots of description while on the boat which in the end I skimmed just to move it along faster. I did like the twist at the end though, which left you wondering who was who. "

    " This was a book I was on the fence about. I really enjoyed some parts of it, and for a novel where the main character spent the majority of the novel without companionship, it's surprisingly interesting. Loved the ending, but a little lengthy. "

    " It's very well-written, but it tends to drag on and on with explanation and description. It needs a little more action, a little less talking. "

    " A clever, spiritual story which has the sort of narrative twist that contemporary fiction seems to have taken from Hollywood cinema. The story is strong, but this plot device ultimately feels gimmicky. "

    " This one was a surprise, and a lot of fun. The start was captivating, but the storyline takes you WAY OFF the mark. I won't spoil the story for others, but this was a very fun, quick, and interesting read! A definite thumbs up from me. "
