When sixteen-year-old Pi Patel finds himself stranded in a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with only a menacing 450-pound Bengal tiger for company, he quickly realizes that the only way he will survive is if he makes sure the tiger is more afraid of him than he is of it. Finding strength within himself, he draws ypon all of his knowledge and cunning, battles for food and shelter, overcomes storms and disasters, and, in the end, makes a peace of sorts with both tiger and ocean.
um yeah this book is nuts. it's horribly depressing. i don't know what to believe. no one, i mean no one should have to watch their mother die. no one should have to watch anyone die, even if it is an animal, and especially the way these animals/people died. Pi is very strong, but sheesh. i just don't even know. Carnivorous islands & trees? What? I am shocked. This book should not be for freshman. It's too graphic. Some of the details are good though. Like when he was describing the Zoo. It made them seem so magical. It made me want to go to the zoo. All in all the book was good, despite the death.
