The book is the story of a young man, Piscine Patel, who goes by the name "Pi" and an author who is determined to write his story which he has been told is astounding. Pi is an imaginative polytheist whose father owns a zoo that he spends much of his time in. When Pi is a young man, his father decides to move his family to Canada from India and bring along some of the animals from his zoo. While making passage across the sea, the ship sinks and Pi manages to make it onto a lifeboat with four other animals and no one else. The animals, a wounded zebra, an orangutan and a hyena, eventually destroy each other leaving Pi alone on the small boat with only an adult Bengal tiger. Initially, Pi is frightened of the tiger but eventually he trains it to respond to him as he learns to use the ships emergency supplies to take care of them. Pi and the tiger spend 227 days on the ship until eventually, they hit shore on a Mexican beach. The tiger runs off into the jungle while Pi is taken to the hospital by passersby. During an interview with the marine authorities about the ship, Pi tells them his miraculous story but, when pressed tells another more realistic story of surviving on a boat with four people whom eventually turned to cannibalism. The author implies that it is up to the reader to decide which story is true.
