Life of Pi

By Yann Martel


Synopsis

Let’s begin with what LIFE OF PI isn’t. It’s not a Man against Nature survival story. It’s not a story about zoos or wild animals or animal husbandry. It’s not ROBINSON CRUSOE or SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON. It’s not a literary version of CASTAWAY or OPEN WATER, and it’s not a “triumph against all odds, happily ever after” rescue story. To classify it as such would be like classifying THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA as a story about a poor fisherman or MOBY DICK as a sea story. Or THE TRIAL as a courtroom drama, THE PLAGUE as a story of an epidemic, HEART OF DARKNESS as a story about slavery, or ANIMAL FARM as an animal adventure.
