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.
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.

It's truly different from other books I've read, would not be sure how to class it, "magical realism". Unexpected and captivating!

Ohh, that will be a spoiler ;-)
Both, laugh, cry and wonder... wonder... wonder
Its a reading you will not forget
Beeing a grown up person, i read it to grandchildren, to elders and to teens, even them loved it, and that is much to say!
The title is good enough to intrigue
This is one of the richest, deepest, most beautifully written novels I've ever read. It is quirky, amusing, works on various levels, about truth, zoology, coping gracefully with the difficulties of life, different cultures, etc. It is so rich in so many ways & so delightful I hardly know what to say.
Like many of us, Pi is a student of both science & religion. When his parents object to his becoming a Christian, a Hindu & a Muslim simultaneously, he simply says, "I just want to love God."
Pi is about Truth, which is not absolute, but which as quantum physics has documented, is a matter of one viewer's perspective at one moment in time. Pi's life is narrated in an engaging, delightful, a deeply meaningful manner.
I will be thinking this book over for a long time.
Female, love a good mystery, Victorian English literature and love to laugh (Dickens, Austen, Trollepe, Wodehouse, Gaskell, Elliot
I read and highly enjoyed this wonderful book. I could not resist purchasing the audio version, and happy I am that I did! What a delightful, fanciful story. Imagine 7 months in a lifeboat with Mr Parker. The main character captured my heart from Chapter one to the very end when he offered a cookie to the two Japanese diplomats from whom he had received the cookies! Sweet. The narrator was just perfect, I will probably listen again in the future.
the recording was excellent, story line not as I had hoped.
did not appeal to me
interpretation was good added to the listening experience
Did not enjoy the story line as much as I had hoped
This book sucks. You cant see it in the reviews, but Its really a story about selling religion!
