"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.
"Surviving the storms"
This is the story of Pi Patel, an Indian boy from Pondicherry, and Richard Parker, the Bengal Tiger, as they survive together after the ship they are travelling on sinks in a storm. Expertly written and wonderfully narrated, I highly recommend to anyone in search of an adventure that tests human and animal survival capacities to the limit.
Poignant and philosophical, this story makes you rethink about how we perceive the world around us and the challenges we face. As Pi says in an interview after landing in Mexico "the world isn't just the way it is, it is how we understand it".

This is such a wonderful book. Narration is strong and easy to listen to. Narrator brings the necessary humor which makes the sadness of the tale bearable. One of my very favourite novels. I shall listen again and again.
even if you've already seen and enjoyed the movie (as I had, and did) this in my opinion is a must.
"Good book, odd reading."
Indian accent is terrible. Why not get someone with a native Indian accent? Brilliant book, to me about how religion is perception. What some people might call God, others will see as nature or science. Which is the better story?
"Life of Pi"
I wasn't sure what to expect from this story but thoroughly enjoyed it. The performance was perfect and the storyline unusual and entertaining.
"A truly remarkable story"
With a 100 chapters and 14 hours to listen I thought I'd struggle. I didn't.
"Pi is best"
Life of Pi is like chocolate for the soul. My go to story any time. Absolutely love it.
