300 pages of a story similar to the "Old Man and the Sea." Easy read with large print.
I was somewhat board with the book. It has A LOT of background information. More than I think it needs and it seemed to jump around a lot. Read the following and judge for yourself!

Here's what's on the back of the book: Pi Patel, a god-loving boy and the son of a zookeeper, has a fervent love of stories and practices not only his native Hinduism, but also Christianity and Islam. When Pi is 16, his family and their zoo animals emigrate from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship. Alas, the ship sinks - and Pi finds himself in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an oragutan, a wounded zebra, and a 450-pound Bengal Tiger. Soon the tiger has dispatched all but Pi. Can Pi and the tiger find their way to land? Can Pi's fear, knowledge and cunning keep him alive until they do?
