Life Of Pi

by Yann Martel
Read by Alexander Marshall, Jeff Woodman

HighBridge Company | January 9, 2003 | Audio Book (CD)

Life Of Pi is rated 4 out of 5 by 177.
Martel's novel tells the story of Pi—short for Piscine—an unusual boy raised in a zoo in India. Pi's father decides to move the family to live in Canada and sell the animals to the great zoos of America. The ship taking them across the Pacific sinks and Pi finds himself the sole human survivor on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg and Bengal tiger called Richard Parker. Life of Pi brings together many themes including religion, zoology, fear, and sheer tenacity. This is a funny, wise, and highly original look at what it means to be human.

“Woodman reads with an almost childlike delicacy and simplicity that lend credibility to the wisdom implicit in this fanciful tale. . . . His range is astounding. . . . Both story and reading delight on every level.”
