Editorial Reviews

"A story so magical, so playful, so harrowing and astonishing that it will make you believe imagination might be the first step [to believing in God].... Every page offers something of tension, humanity, surprise or even ecstasy." —The Times"Pi is Martel's triumph. He is understated and ironic, utterly believable and pure.... The whole fantastic voyage carries hints of The Old Man and the Sea and the magic realism of Amado and Marquez and the absurdity of Beckett." —The Globe and Mail"Martel has created a funny, wise and highly original look at what it means to be human." —Chatelaine"A tale of disaster at sea coupled with miraculous survival--a boys' adventure for grown-ups."—Margaret Atwood, The Sunday Times"An impassioned defense of zoos, a death-defying trans-Pacific sea adventure à la Kon-Tiki, and a hilarious shaggy-dog story.... This audacious novel manages to be all of these." —The New Yorker
