I had been reading some survival stories and this was a real surprise; just disappointed to find that it was fiction instead of real. It is very well written, descriptions almost artistic, and will hold your attention as unexpecteds develop after realistic impossibilities.
A story unlike any other. The survival struggles of a spiratually oriented, inventive, strong-willed teen-age boy in a lifeboat--in a situation truly more bizarre than can be imagined.
Beautifully written from the boy's point-of-view. Contains lessons for us all in the nature of the human spirit, and perhaps the very nature of God as well.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. The narrator really helps make the story come alive. The story can be appreciated on so many different levels. You never know what is going to happen next.
This story starts incredibly slowly. The narrator attempts an incredibly annoying Indian accent. I don't know that I'll be able to get all the way through it. Make sure you preview it before you buy it!
This a wondeful story, perfectly narrated. If you love learning new perspectives on religion, aninmals and the essence of humans, then this book will not disappoint, but delight. Please read and enjoy, as I did.
This fascinating piece of fiction combines the depth and symbolism of "Moby Dick", the wisdom and painstaiking detail of "Robinson Crusoe", the wit of Jonathan Swift with a thoroughly contemporary flavor and a plethora of vivid contrasts. I enjoyed it immensely.
Pi Patel is the kind of guy you'd like to have as a friend. Perfect blend of humor, intelligence, reason and spirituality. 11+ hours goes fast, and the listener is left with a lot to ponder. Some parts are very funny, some sad.
This is a very enjoyable book. One of my favorite books is "Crime and Punishment". If you like that level of detail, this book is for you. I have been trying without success to locate information on the algae island in the Pacific. Can anyone help?
