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?
To begin with, the story is fantastic. Many people who have read the actual book concur. In addition, the narrator does such a good job, you believe that you are there in the story.
The success of an audiobook depends upon both the writing and the narration. Both are excellent in this production. The narrator interprets this wonderful story skillfully. He brings Pi alive and transports us into his world so that I was lured into believing the unbelievable.
I found this book to be very thought provoking, entertaining and it kept my attention throughout.
Very well read with believable delivery.
