Thanks to the lovely people over at Canongate Books, we at Novelicious have a gorgeous new movie tie-in edition of the beloved Life of Pi by Yann Martel to give away, ahead of the film's cinematic release in December.
The book, which won the 2002 Booker Prize, looks at what happens when a young boy named Pi is stranded at sea with a host of animals for company – including a 450-pound Bengal tiger. The film adaptation, directed by Ang Lee, certainly looks magical.
If you want to get your hands on a copy of the book before the film hits cinemas at the end of the year, just comment and let us know why you'd like this book.
UK entries only. Open until next Wednesday (19th September).
After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, a solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wide, wild Pacific. The crew of the surviving vessel consists of a hyena, one zebra (with broken leg), an orang-utan, a 450-pound Royal Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker and Pi – a 16-year-old Indian boy. As the 'crew' begin to assert their natural places in the food chain, Pi's fear mounts, and he must use all his wit and daring to develop an understanding with Richard the tiger.
Now a major motion picture from Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee and Winner of the Booker Prize.
