    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    Overall

    I reviewed Part One separately. By Part Two, I was hooked on the book and couldn't stop listening. I actually carried my computer into work and into my house listening as I walked. It reminded me of the Russian spy novels I read for fun before the end of the cold war. The language was very intriguing, subtle, and clever, and I thought the narrator did some of the voices very well. Yes, her "regular" voice was a little grating, but I rather imagined that's how Cayce herself might have sounded. My husband never got into the book, but I ended up really liking it.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "Fascinating!"
    Overall

    I can only say that I found this story fascinating. I could not stop listening, even after my trip ended. The voice seemed authentic. In addition, the great many descriptions of animals weree wonderful.
