"A little bit of a disappointment."
Although this is a wonderful story i felt let down by the Audiobook. The problem maybe that i had watched the film before listening to the book and new what was happening. To me the "Life of Pi" is one of those few occasions when you can say the FILM is better then the BOOK, it's usually the other way round.
There is nothing wrong with the voice actors or the sound quality they are all great, as usual for audible, my issue was that the pace of the story was very slow and it seemed disjointed. it didn't flow very well.
The Life Of Pi is a wonderful story but for me the film will always be better.
This has to be one of the most amazing books I've ever read and am so looking forward to listening to the audio book this time round.
Amazing creativity and a gripping story.
"Surprising, exciting and applied philosophy"
This was an enjoyable read. I loved the explorations of religion and the beauty of practising all simultaneously.
The time on the ocean was portrayed with such clarity that I travelled along with Picine.
Jeff Woodman did a fabulous job narrating this book.
I love this book! Reading it was a pleasure, listening to Jeff Woodman was even better, I felt I was in the lifeboat with Pi struggling along with him at every instance, I can't speak highly enough of this wonderful tale :)
This is by far the best book I have ever experienced. How someone can put a tiger in boat and make that a gripping story is incredible and the end is so unexpected.
Really enjoyed this book, not something I usually go for but bought it on a whim in the happy hour sale and I'm so pleased I did!!! It was a great book and truly fascinating. I will be listening to this again in the future :0)
"A long journey, but worth it!"
This is a lovely book, however I did find it went on a bit and could have been made shorter. But it was still great, and very believable. You find yourself thinking about Pi on the boat when your not listening to the book and wanting to get back to listening and see what he's up to next!
"Enjoyable and brilliant"
Brilliant from start to finish, never wanted it to end and started again the next day, although the narrator took a bit of time to get used to when I did he bought the story to life and I enjoyed every minuet of it. I did get a bit confused in places, I don't want to spoil it so wont say why but you will understand when you listen, but just go with it don't think about it being real just a great story and adventure.
"Better than the film"
After a long pre amble the book finally gets going. I found the narration a little bit slow to begin with but once I got used to it it was very enjoyable and addictive.I watched the Film recently and have now started re-listening to the book which has so much more depth and is even more enjoyable 2nd time around.
This book is very cleverly written it caters for the ignorant and the enlightened reader at the very same time it is just a matter of perspective.
