Life of Pi is a novel that has received many awards, including the Booker Prize, (significant to any author living outside the US). The narrator explores everything from grooming habits of zoo animals to finding God through religion. Overall the novel is about believing in something bigger than what you can see with your own eyes. At least that’s what we think the novel was supposed to be about. You’ll have to ask Yann Martel if you want to know for sure.
Also, don’t be confused at the title like we were. Apparently Pi does not refer to the delicious fruit filled desert, but an arduous, impractical, mathematical constant. In all honesty, the book really doesn’t have that much to do with numbers, but we just wanted to make sure your expectations are set accordingly.
Editor’s Note: We here at Two Bibliomaniacs are a little concerned about how underrepresented pie is in contemporary or traditional literature. This is an official call to action… who’s with us?
