I liked Pi's musings on religion and his open mindedness toward each religion he encountered. He also saw the good parts of each religion and took them into his own belief system.
I would maybe try another book by this author, but it would need to have a little more action in order to keep my attention.
authentic, flexible, acrobatic
No I don't think Life of Pi needs a follow up. I was ready for Pi's story to be over as soon as I put it down.
It's hard to keep someone extremely interested in the situation the protagonist was in. There just isn't that much going on most of the time. I enjoyed the book, but I wouldn't say I was really all that engaged after the first 1/3 of it.
I listened to half while on a car trip and read the last half on my Kindle. I always like reading over listening since my mind gets more involved, but I can get through more books by listening in my car. I can't really say if the audio is better than the print - for me I like the print. For others, they may like to listen.
The ending made the entire book worthwhile and extraordinarily thought provoking. The "2nd story" brings it all together but is a sad commentary about the human race.
I have not.
Of course who would not want to speak with Pi Patel about his final understanding of God after all he went through. Is he still a Hindu, Jew AND Christian? But Richard Parker has a lot to say too!
As life is not always pretty, neither is this book. Although the movie is rated PG, I am not sure I would want a young person reading this book. It has much violence related to survival and in my opinion, is not for those under 14-16 years of age.
I would rank Life of PI in the upper middle of all the audiobooks I've listened to. Great narration. Interesting and unusual material. Some parts were gruesomely descriptive.
Not particularly. It was ok to take in parts.
I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this one is definately one of the good ones!
I read the book some years ago, and wanted to be more familiar with it before going to the movie--which is why I bought it to listen to. I had forgotten how beautifully written it is, how funny and poignant and profound. It is a stunning work of literature and the readers are very, very good--just right.
This book rates at the top of the book list. Fantastic listen!
The main character Pi was my favorite. I found his telling of the story and in such detail just so interesting.
I didn't think it was as great as everyone seems to think. It would be much better if it was based on a true story in any way.
The ending should have been more thought provoking or clarified something in his life.
Could have been better.
His time at sea with the tiger.
Yep, already has been.
Stimulating your imagination.
One of my most memorable moments in this book was the section involving the cannibal island.
Pi's desire to just love God.
This is a great story, wonderfully performed, thought provoking - one you will truly enjoy!

Pi because his story is amazing and I would want to hear it from him.
Everyone should hear this book. I read the book years ago but listening to it was a real treat. I can't wait for the movie to come out now.
