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.
There are few audiobooks I have enjoyed on all fronts - writing, story, narration - as I have this one. Glorious imagery, a story that grabbed at my heart, and a narrator who perfectly captured the essence of a very compelling main character. Don't be fooled by the first few minutes. It doesn't adequately prepare you for the treat to come!
Yes, overall it was entertaining. Not gripping, but entertaining.
Final scene with Pi describing the story behind the story was my favorite.
The story from begining to end was amazing!
Richard Parker. His story from when he was little until how he evolved and shared the same suffering and pain Pi went through.
Pi telling his parents about becoming a believer of different religions.
No, just kept me in suspense.
Very well written!
The story is all over the place and the details of animal cruelty was more than I wanted to hear.
Jeff's performance was good and gives the story life and reality.
Disappointment above all things. The reviews I read still baffle me. I definitely didn't get the same thing from the book that others did.
Just because a movie becomes a major motion picture does not make it a good story.
