Overview

The story of a boy, a boat, and a tiger promises an adventure which some may find hard to believe. However, with the Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion companion to Yann Martel's novel, Life of Pi, readers begin to consider how to believe the unbelievable. While Yann Martel takes readers on a voyage of discovery, Bookclub-in-a-Box interprets his exploration: can miracles exist? what is the power of faith? what guarantees successful survival? Let Bookclub-in-a-Box take readers into Pi's mind, the influences in his life, his physical struggle to survive at sea and his spiritual struggle to understand his own faith and his place in the world. There are a great many deep concepts to reflect upon in this small fictional narrative, and Bookclub-in-a-Box presents them for thoughtful consideration.
