    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Absolutely! The book with the character's voices and the excitement was amazing! I felt the emotions and the anxiety of the character's personalities.


    What other book might you compare Inferno to and why?

    Dan Brown books are thrilling! He brings ordinary objects and gives a fresh perspective and deeper meaning to the books themes.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    Love it! His excitement made the character come to life!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. It was very disturbing and it took me days afterward to contemplate the implications of that premise actually happening in society. Very Scary!

    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.

    If you could sum up Life of Pi in three words, what would they be?

    Water, Animals and Survival


    What other book might you compare Life of Pi to and why?

    I am not sure about a particular book; but about survival and being shipwrecked this was thrilling and I felt like I was with Pi on his journey.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Woodman – was your favorite?

    Pi Patel!
    His story of survival and Richard Parker was amazing!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My emotions were as frequent as the waves and changing like the currents; going in every direction.


    Any additional comments?

    Superb! I watched the movie after reading/listening to the book! Awesome!
