Not only a great book, but extremely well read! Time flies by as you go from work to home and the other way around, while you're submersed in this ultimate survival fantasy... or is it?
I was rather disappointed in this book. It was good, but I apparently missed what everyone else found so intriguing. It was good, but I expected more.
I couldn't finish this book. I listened to most of it but found the parts about the animal deaths painstakingly drawn out and detailed. I even fast forwarded through some portions trying to bypass but it just kept on coming. Other than that I enjoyed what I heard.
A little slow at the beginning, but keep listening...once this story got going, I didn't want it to stop. I couldn't wait to get in my car to listen each day to and from work. So incredible and rich with detail and feeling, I thought it must be a true story.
Jeff Wood does an excellent job bring the character of "Pi" to life in this wonderful fiction. It is so well written that at times I forgot it was fiction and had actually happened. It does start out a little slow, but that is necessary to lay the foundation upon which the story develops. I really enjoyed this book and recommended it to everyone I know.
I saw the review that said this book started a little slowly. It was true, but it did all tie together eventually. Once they hit the sea, all was saved! Great story, great reading, made my commute seem to go by in minutes. I've given this book to a friend.
This was an excellent book. It was so good that part of the way through I was wishing I had bought the book and read it instead of downloading it. Hindsight. You'll love it.
