Absolutely! Read the book 1st by hand then audible. I highly recommend both. Brilliantly performed & pray the movie does it justice. What a marvelous spin of a life well lived. The dominance of spirit seeking a higher meaning using every resource and gift available. The interaction of other life forces, good, bad & indifferent. I just couldn't get enough of this book & the story it told. This was a refreshing & unique perspective of life on the edge.
The broad spectrum of characters & how they so delicately wove together. You were never sure of where the story would lead & at the end not so sure it was really actuality. The depth of how far a human can suffer in life still holding on to hope boggles the imagination.
I have not listened to other performances, but he did an excellent job.
Richard Parker would be a most interesting dinner guest. I would dearly enjoy probing his mind to hear the tale from his perspective.
Pi's indelible spirit & mind is a tribute to the driving force within us all. We are given all the resources in this life to survive & thrive. His youth, family upbringing, education & spirituality were the greatest survival pack of all. One must wonder if the rest of his life could ever measure up to his time on the ocean or how it impacted the any other catastrophes he faced in his life. It certainly sounds like he may have become a hoarder. Was he able to marry & share life as he did with Richard Parker or did it drive him to a reclusive existence. I would like to think he grew to be a sage. His life's lessons certainly impacted my view of the world.
The storyline was good, but imho it was simply drawn out, too long. It took a long time to get into it, but once I was in, I was hooked. Great writing, good performance, I think it will be a great movie.
it is more boring then watching a slug crawl across a wall that paint is drying on
a funny voice
this book is eggs
This story is masterfully told in 100 chapters. The plot has few twists but the twists that are in there are very profound. I've enjoyed listening to this audiobook and wholeheartedly recommend it.
The story is filled with beautiful scenes, sad moments and hilarious passages. Great hearing !!!
Pi performed by Jeff Woodman has an incredibly sutil Hindu accent that ir really transports you into the main character's mind.
Excelent use for my first credit.
No, it was pretty slow going and not at all exciting
A lot of the on the water seemed repetative.
Apparently this is going to be a big budget movie with lots of effects. Seems unecessary to me. The author describes everything so poignantly that seeing it on screen could not improve the images, for me anyway. I trust Hollywood to ruin the thing anyway. This narrator is picture-perfect, and I love the book. Will definitely need to explore this author more in the future, when I find the time. Some people do not like the ending...I am unsure why. I thought that was great too. Such a unique story, and it is so difficult to produce something this strange and new, seemingly, these days. Fantasy on the high seas and castaway literature is a genre though I guess, so its not wholly new. But great adventure and details on zoos and animals.
This book wasn't for me. I just couldn't get into it and bailed. The narrator was OK. I just couldn't get into the story.
Why is it that I cannot get enough Zombie Books?

It's truly different from other books I've read, would not be sure how to class it, "magical realism". Unexpected and captivating!
... the end...
Ohh, that will be a spoiler ;-)
Both, laugh, cry and wonder... wonder... wonder
