A. Acclaim for Yann Martel’s Life of Pi

“A fabulous romp through an imagination by turns ecstatic, cunning, despairing andresilient, this novel is an impressive achievement... Martel displays the clever voice and tremendous storytelling skills of an emerging master.” ---Publisher’s Weekly

“ Astounding and beautiful... The book is a pleasure not only for the subtleties of its philosophy but also for its ingenious and surprising story. Martel is a confident, heartfeltartist, and his imagination is cared for in a writing style that is both unmistakable and marvelously reserved. The ending of Life of Pi...is a show of such sophisticated genius that I could scarcely keep my eyes in my head as I read it.” ----The Vancouver Sun

“ I guarantee that you will not be able to put this book down. It’s a realistic, grippingstory of survival at sea. [Martel’s] imagination is powerful, his range enormous, his capacityfor persuasion almost limitless. I predict that Yann Martel will develop into one of Canada’s great writer.” ----The Hamilton Spectator
