Do not hesitate... it is engrossing, hilarious and thoughtful. This book is very worthy of it's accolades, and you will find it touches both your funny bone and heart. Excellent choice.
This book was very good.
This is an interesting story, told with wit and humor. This book also has many times when one is forced to learn deep lessons from one's soul.
The narration and sound quality were excellent. The audio narrator has an Indian accent as the narator in the story would. It added to the story.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Unlike others, I didn't think that it started slow but rather laid valuable insight for later chapters. Every so often I would wonder if it was the wording used by the author that made this such a joy to listen to, or was it the superb narration. Best book I've heard since starting my subscription a year ago.
Definitely worth listening to. The only reason that I didn't give it five stars is because it is a bit slow at times. Interesting story, with plot twists and some bits of humor that temper the overlying sadness of Pi's situation.
OK story, more than just a story, but a fable shouldn't read as if the author is being paid by the word. I almost began feeling like I was adrift in a lifeboat with no hope for rescue. That may be the author's point, but who wants to feel like they're in a lost and pointless story? The ending was doubly satisfying...finally, the book ended...I was beginning to think it would never end, and yes, the ending of the book made me feel like I hadn't wasted my time, thankfully. After reading so many gushing reviews of this title, I was thinking "the emperor isn't wearing any clothes"! It's OK, but I can't see 5 stars!!
This was an awesome book! It begins a bit tedious and explanatory but unwinds into a whirlwind of a story that will keep your imagination running. This is a book that will keep you thinking long after you're done with it. I highly recommend it!
A savory story which swells the heart and sparks the mind. The author is an inspired artist well rooted in his medium. The narration was superb and proved the Indian accent to be a proud member of the wonderful spices of India.
This book was a treat! More so because of the super narration. I was hooked immediately and completely forgot that this is a work of fiction. If I'm ever stranded on a desert island, this is the book I want to have with me--in case I run into a tiger!
This is now one of my favorite books of all time. Mixing zoology, religion, and suvivalism, Yann Martel has written a moving and vastly interesting book. Rarely do you find a book with such elegant writing paired with an intriguing plot. I urge you to read this book.
