    When two unhappy women switch homes for the summer, there are extraordinary consequences, and each learns that the other has a deep secret that can never be revealed. At the end of the summer, when the women at last meet face-to-face, they find that they have become, firmly and forever, good friends.

    I selected this book because it was on Oprah's list. At first I was surprised that it was an Oprah pick because it seemed to lack the intellect of her other selections.

    Soon I was soothed by the author's words, lulled by the narrator's voice and rooting for our main characters.

    Although not brain surgery, I realized that the intellect was buried in the author's ability to tell a story.

    It was a lovely way to spend my commute.

    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"
    "Loved it"
    Overall

    I have listened to many audio books and "Life of Pi" was one of my favorites. The writing was intelligent and narration on point. My love for India and for animals is surely a contributing factor but I must say that this book touched my heart. I found myself asking everyone that I know if they had read it and if, not begging them to listen!

    Story

    This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, a librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36, and were married when Clare was 22 and Henry 30. Impossible but true, because Henry has Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his past, present, and future.

    Lucy says: "Worth trying to sort it out"
