Life of Pi


After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one 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. Since it was first published in 2002, "Life of Pi" has entered mainstream consciousness and remains one of the most extraordinary works of fiction in recent years. In October 2005 Canongate launched a competition with "The Times" to find an artist to illustrate Yann Martel's international bestseller. Soon the competition expanded as the "Globe" and "Mail" and "The Age" newspapers also launched a search in Canada and Australia. From thousands of entries, Croatian artist Tomislav Torjanac was chosen as the illustrator for this new edition of "Life of Pi". Now readers can enjoy this extraordinary tale with his glorious colour illustrations. Hide synopsis

A spectial edition of a special book

by booksnoop on May 16, 2013

Many of us have read Life of Pi in soft-cover or hard-cover editions. The illustrated edition is for those who want to keep the book on their shelves forever and ever. The copy I received is in perfect condition: I couldn't be more pleased.

Appreciated the remarkably short time between ordering and receiving the book which was in perfect condition.


Astonishing book -- bought a second copy!

The youngster whose tale is told in this book was already a fascinating person before he found himself adrift in a lifeboat in the Pacific with no one but a quartet of zoo animals, including a 450-pound Bengal tiger. I was so impressed, I bought an extra copy to lend to friends.
