"A deeply worrying message"
The message of Life of Pi is simple - lies are better than truth. Personally I find this to be a deeply worrying message.
The fake Indian accent grates after a while.
I would have cut all the religious aspects, as they are relentless and very tiring. I get it, Martel wants you to believe in fairy tales/religion because the real world is full of bad things. Personally I'd take truth, evidence, and reality any day. Nothing good comes from believing lies.
Quite how this turgid, preachy nonsense ever won awards is beyond me.
I enjoyed this audio book immensely, its narrated Wonderfully and a beautiful piece of writing. A must read!
I loved this book. Such a unique story. Found it very easy to listen to.
"incredible and something all must truely experienc"
i would love to recommend this book and allow them to experience this tale that floats you far from reality into this journey in which Pi has been forced to take in order to survive
this is an adventure for survival and i am very fond of books in which you see the development of the character, but its so difficult to compare this to another book
there is only one character in which you can truly appreciate and his accent makes it all the more enjoyable and authentic
there is a film for this book already haha but it would be; tragedy and survival entangled with one in which is nor friend nor human
if you enjoyed the film as i did why not read the actual book and see how much more it has to give
"A far-fetched tale"
The best bit was the last part, at least it was more 'listenable' than the start.
Take out the boring beginning to the story
Not to go and see the film. If it is anything like the book it must be a gory, horrible mess.
Great new philosophical work of our time that pays back the investment at the beginning which is a slow and not very rewarding
This is fantastic such a brilliant story with a brilliant narration highly recommend it for road trip listening
Having not watched the movie adaptation, I didn't know what to expect. Thoroughly enjoyed the book, and the narrator was excellent.
"Unbelievable but very satisfying"
Loved listening to this story (despite minor elements of pronunciations which grated - e.g. buoy). Particularly enjoyed discussions on religion in the early chapters and the verbal sparring with the Japanese investigators.
Well constructed narrative of an unbelievable story and a brief tale of a more believable but far less satisfying version later on.
"Excellent - holds your attention -"
Something different. Just the right amount of action and thinking. The kind of book you'll never forget. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Definitely recommend.
