The reader is truly excellent. I read book two (rather than listenning to it) and it was simply not as good. The plot is original. I was entranced. hard to put down is the only problem.
Now i'm hanging out for book 3 (day 3) which appears is not yet written - gutted when i realised this.
Yes. its truly original and gets you thinking about a lot. If you can listen to the first 3.5 hours of narrative and the authors agenda on zoos and religion (which is interesting but not what you bought the book to hear about) it raises the opportunity for all sorts of thoughts and musings. then the journey itself is both harrowing and inspiring.
Would have rated it a lot higher if the first 3.5 hours were cut back to 45 minutes and if there were a lot more of an epilogue or follow through of Pi's transition back to the inhabited world and how he created his life from there.
Pi of course. the only real character that is developed.
imagining the island was like exploring a whole new world.
I will but not sure i need to see it on the big screen. i cant imagine how they cover the first 3 1/2 hours - hopefully movie goes can avoid this.
Yes, its a refreshing concept and interesting to see how it plays out. Not a lot new though, i'm on the 3rd book now, waiting for something original - some more depth or growth in the characters or an interesting twist would be great.
Anyone that can do a less annoying british accent for Bones's characer
It feels like a whole lot of talking without a lot of insight. i've had a hard time getting into it, perhaps it will get better if i can persevere
a change in tempo to signal changes in aspect/approach may have helped.
Didnt live up to my expectations after it got such great reveiews.
You want to know how the saga ends, so its worth a read/listen but its not as satisfying as the other two books
Have some more light moments, create moments of enjoyment amongst the strain and chaos to lift it. introduce another Cinna - a likeable ally.
the narrator's voice annoys me - i dont think it captures the characters at all
Definitely. Amanda Peet would work in this role i think.
Great to see the progression of the story. More action and introduction to a whole new world/arena.
Not a big fan of the narrator's voice and style unfortunately but it doesnt take away hugely from the adventure/story.
