This was a great story. The narration was perfect and the story keeps you going. It was both heart warming and nerve racking. Well worth the effort. I highly recommend.
Among the top 10.
The unique concept and the way it is put together.
Just perfect for the part. Unlike some readers he seems to actually have read the story before recording.
The first part of the story is a little brutal but once you get caught-up in the story it all fits together.
Audible is the best thing since sliced bread..
Although it is somewhat far fetched it is a great story. Full of wonder and imagination.
A story I would give to my children.
I really liked the fact that the young man never gives up on life, a story about going on in the face of certain death.
I was not crazy about the readers accent, i found it annoying but i understand the need for it. Any fiction reader will enjoy this adventure. An instant classic.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
I started to read this book, but couldn't get through the first few pages. Listening to it was the key! My imagination just took off because of the great narration. The narrator's voice inflections and accents enhanced the story making it interesting to listen to.
I would not recommend this book to a friend. While I can appreciate another's religious views, the notion that the one true God is present and the same in ALL religions, not only is an absurdity and illogical claim, but is driven in this book to the point of overkill.
The narrator did a fabulous job!
I wanted to see the movie because the trailer was enticing, but now that I have read the book, I have no interest in seeing the movie.
Pi's words "what a terrible thing it is to botch a farewell " will remain with me for a long time. His sorrow at the way his relationship with Richard Parker concluded brings to mind my own similar sorrows: the things I wished I'd said to my mother, my brother, friends long gone, the people to whom I wished I'd said "Thank you. I couldn't have made it without you."
Be Still and Know --- or -- Give Thanks for the Tigers in Your Lifeboat
Very, very meaningful. A beautiful lesson. God meets you where, and how, you are.
I wouldn't consider this one of the best books I have read but I did enjoy the story. The narrator did a nice job and his narration helped keep the story moving forward. I did like the ending, gave me something to think about & discuss with others who have read the book.
This is an adventure story filled with many colorful characters.
When Pi explains his adventure to the insurance agents.
Mama G was my favorite character.
The ending to this book is one of the best i have ever heard. It caught me by complete surprise.
Do not pass this one up!!!
It was playful.
It is and I thought I would until I listened to the book. Can't see enough story interest to seeing the movie.
Just way too much dialog about his past and how he was raised and his father and the various animals. Too much building of the story background to keep interest.

I would recommend The Life of Pi to my friends because it was different, not your typical adventure.
The acid island and the tiger coming to an agreement with Pi has to be the most memorable part.
Too many to choose from
Pi and we would have sushi, seaweed salad, and a glass of Hob Nob Pinot Noir. I would like to discuss the point of the book when he was young and attending all the different churches unbeknownst to this parents. I thought that was an incredibly smart thing to do. How else do you learn about the unknown?
