Have read the printed version, now experienced the audio, it's almost as good.
"I will turn the miracle into routine! The amazing will be seen every day."
Yes, since the reader did a wonderful job.
When he talked to the Tiger
There was only the one main character who was great.
Would have given this book a high rating if it was not for the end-which was confusing to me. I do plan to see the movie and see how they address the end.
What a tall tale! Yet, how wonderfully done, from the writing to the narrator. It was a delight to get lost in. I am recommending it to all I know, from ages 12 to 100, who love a yarn with a little mystery and much heart.
The narrator was AWESOME!
All of it
No , but his narration is truly brilliant
I know they are making a film, but I don't know how they are going to do the book justice
I'd say pretty high.
When I realized that there could be two stories here and that maybe the better one wasn't the truer one.
He did an excellent job... I Loved every word.
When the second narrator was talking about Pi's life & childhood in India (And all remnants of his family) being illustrated in the photo album by just four blurry pictures.
This is a book I'll remember fondly and hauntingly for the rest of my life.
No to Yann. Yes to Jeff.
If castaway is a genre, then yes.
The end where we learned of the twist. That was the only part that caught my attention and I am sure this part will never make it into the movie.

This is an awesome book! Definitely listen as the narrators accent helps the story take flight. I listened and read at the same time. Glad I did. It was one of those books you'll always remember fondly.
His accent helped me hear Pi. It was like listening to a friend tell me his story.
There is a film and I can't wait to see it now!
This book starts a bit slow. Stick with it. The info you learn about zoos in the beginning is important later on. Keep listening. You will be glad you listened to this amazing book.
Even though I did not read the print version, the audio was excellent. The reader speaking made sure that you could feel what is happening. you could feel yourself in Pi's place. Feeling what he was feeling.. seeing what he was seeing.. feeling his emotions. It was great!!
Performance was great.. It was like a movie.. He managed the accents really well and the hindi words as well.
It makes you laugh.. it makes you cry. you are able to feel the suffering.. you end up respecting what you have rather than taking things from granted.
Excellent narration, kept me listening even though I wasn't sure I wanted to. Saw it through to the end only to be left wondering. I am glad I listened to it and continue to reflect on the book, just not my normal selection.
I am a chaplain at a local hospital. I belong to a book club. When I'm not at work I play handbells and sew.
I discussed this book with a friend who had read it and not cared for the story. "Which story was true?' she asked me. Who cares? I said. The big part of this book was Pi's struggle, coming to terms with and using his spiritual life. That was the thread that connected all the unconnected pieces together. Pi's open mindedness was refreshing. He saw no problem with being a practicing Hindu, Muslim and Christian. Would that more of us felt that way! As to which story is "true?" I like to believe the one with animals.
