====【内容介绍】====
Life of Pi is a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. The protagonist, Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, an Indian boy from Pondicherry, explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

故事开始于蒙特娄,也结束于蒙特娄。一名在找寻灵感的作家无意间得知派·帕帖尔的传奇故事。派的父亲开了一家动物园。因这样特殊的生活环境,少年派对信仰与人的本性自有一套看法。在派17岁那一年,他的父母决定举家移民加拿大以追求更好的生活,而他也必须离开他的初恋情人。在前往加拿大的船上,他们遇见一位残忍成性的法国厨师。当天深夜在茫茫大海中,原本令派感到刺激无比的暴风雨一瞬间就成了吞噬货船的大灾难。派却奇迹般地活了下来,搭着救生船在太平洋上漂流,而且有一名最令人意想不到的同伴——理查德·帕克,一只孟加拉老虎。神奇的冒险旅程就这样意外开始了…… 

Life of Pi is divided into three sections. In the first section, the main character, Pi, an adult, reminisces about his childhood. He was named Piscine Molitor Patel after a swimming pool in France. He changes his name to "Pi" when he begins secondary school, because he is tired of being taunted with the nickname "Pissing Patel". His father owns a zoo in Pondicherry, providing Pi with a relatively affluent lifestyle and some understanding of animal psychology.[8]

Pi is raised a Hindu, but as a fourteen-year-old he is introduced to Christianity and Islam, and starts to follow all three religions as he "just wants to love God."[9][10] He tries to understand God through the lens of each religion and comes to recognize benefits in each one.

Eventually, his family decides to sell their zoo over a land dispute with the government, and sell the animals to a zoo in Canada before immigrating there themselves. In the second part of the novel, Pi's family embarks on a Japanese freighter to Canada carrying some of the animals from their zoo, but a few days out of port, the ship meets a storm and capsizes, resulting in his parents' death. After the storm, Pi regains consciousness in a small lifeboat with a spotted hyena, an injured zebra, and an orangutan.

As Pi strives to survive among the animals, the hyena kills the zebra, then the orangutan, much to Pi's distress. At this point, it is discovered that a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker had been hiding under the boat's tarp; it kills and eats the hyena. Frightened, Pi constructs a small raft out of flotation devices, tethers it to the boat, and retreats to it. He delivers some of the fish and water he harvests to Richard Parker to keep him satisfied, conditioning Richard Parker not to threaten him by rocking the boat and causing seasickness while blowing a whistle. Eventually, Richard Parker learns to tolerate Pi's presence and they both live in the boat.

《少年派的奇幻漂流》是近10年来出版界的大事件之一。这部小说赢得著名的曼布克奖,并在纽约时报的畅销书排行榜上停留长达1年多。
