EXCITEMENT, SHOCK, and CAPTIVATED
PI firstly. But then his brothers sense of humor and sarcasim was wonderful.
at the end when he was talking to the policemen
i wouldn't the name was perfect. but if i had to it wouldve been.
"Pi's Tiger and Their Endless Boat Ride"
I can't wait to see if the movie holds up to the Greatness of the Book!
Say something about yourself!
It took a minute to get going, but the end result was worth it. I loved it.
I can't stop calling my dog Richard Parker and I cried a few tears over Orange Juice.
Love that the main charater is from India and the reader is also of Indian descent.
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co
I was immediately swept into the story. First, the narration was fabulous. His accent(s) are beautiful and his cadence is just mind lulling. I was impressed.
The story is funny at times and charming. Even the "sad" times were done in a way that added a bit of humor as to take any trace of sting away. I did NOT want this book to end.
Mid-60s; love true stories of endurance.
I loved the character, Pi.
A human voice is always better than just reading or in this case, listening to a book.
No, I like to take my time with something I like.
I would shorten it, especially the second part. The beginning of the book was amazing and gave o lot of expectations. The images and the language were great. However, everything became boring at the time when Pi meets the french man. Author seems to have something against French, but the figure he put in was not realistic. It was hard to believe that it was a character of the novel - way too schematic. In addition, author seems not to like people in general, except maybe for his teachers and immediate friends, not even his family. Besides, author's writing abilities seem to have waned as the story advanced, unfortunately. I made myself listen to the end, but had no enjoyment anymore. As I read the first part, I wanted to buy this book for a friend as a present. I'm glad I didn't rush...
He talked and talked, belabored his points, and there was no story or plot.
I thought it was going to be great based on the reviews, but it didn't keep my attention at all. Listening to it while stuck in a traffic jam, all I could do was wish I had something more interesting to listen to.
He was fine.
Just boredom and disappointment.
I truly don't understand why people love this book and why they made a movie of it. Maybe I should have tried to continue past ch. 14, but I was afraid I'd fall asleep while driving.
I think I'm the only one who didn't really like this book. I read such great reviews about it but honestly couldn't get into it. My husband liked it until the end it just got too crazy.
Some chapters were absolutely fascinating and I learned a great deal; others were a bit gruesome and some a bit lengthy. Overall a very good and different story
I'm not finished with this book, just mid through but I already know that I'm going too miss Pi and his common sense approach to life. So wise
Pi, he is so wise, so gentle and patient
Jeff Woodman brings an up beat and optimism to his reading of this book.
Richard Parker, except I might be the dinner..Ha! Ha!
It really is a wonderful book for any age.
