He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

actually pi doesn't really survive with a tiger that is just a figment of his imagination that he creates so he wouldnt suffer for the death of the "happy buddist" "the cook" and his mother" because at the end of the story he tells the "in both stories the ship sank my family died and i suffered" that is when the author dude realizes that the story he tells the japanese journalists is the actual story but he invented richard parker in his head so he wouldnt have to live with having to see his mother die and having to kill the cook

Well, there are unbelievable things in this story. A giant fly catching plant which eats animals, fishes and humans??? Surviving for so many days without food? Living with a tiger is possible but... I don't think so.

No, it is not real. Yann Martel (the author) grabbed several ideas from a wide variety of real instances and books and tied them together in the book The Life of Pi. Although it would have been awesome if it was based on a true story, it's not. It's fictional.
