It was my younger brother who gave me this book and told me to read it. He said it was about the only two survivors of a shipwreck crossing the Pacific Ocean in a lifeboat. One was a boy named Pi and the other,
named Richard Parker, was a Bengal tiger.
But, LIFE OF PI. A wonderful book. So much is packed into it, that no short review could do it justice. Briefly: the main part of the book is narrated by Pi as a middle-aged man, settled in Canada. He is a lifelong vegetarian, gentle-natured and devout, born and raised a Hindu, but also honouring God through Islam and Christianity. All these religions, he has come to understand, are, at their heart, the same. They are all about Love.
