This is an unabridged audiobook title.

Pi’s family is moving their zoo when the boat sinks and 16-year old Pi is left afloat in a lifeboat with four animals that includes a tiger.  Up to that point the book is slow to get into but persevere for this unique work is stunning.  It’s brutal, hopeful, humorous, philosophical, almost implausible and yet strangely believable.  A tale that will remain with you for a very long time and deserves another read.

 

Comparison: Mark Haddon (The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time), Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler’s Wife), Aravind Adiga (The White Tiger).
