    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.

    I don't normally write reviews, as I am never quite sure what to say, but this book is engaging on so many levels that I encourage you to listen! Jeff Woodman is an excellent narrator and Yann Martel a fantastic story teller...I want more!

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story seemed disjointed to me. In all fairness to John Gardner I may need to read it in print, as Robin Sach's performance was so monotone that I never finished the book.


    What didn’t you like about Robin Sachs’s performance?

    Mr. Sach's was so monotone that I was afraid to listen in the car, as I may have fallen asleep driving.

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Excelent read..."
    Overall

    This is a story that builds to a final act that is predictable and yet not. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and thinking about the possibilities!

    Story
    (1832)

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "This is a riveting tale of real life..."
    Overall

    This is a sci-fi drama that kept me intrigued throughout. The language is frank with very graphic sexual scenes, but it works for the characters and their lives. I would say the book is for adults only and even not all of those, but I LOVED it!!

    As a pair of young scholars research the lives of two Victorian poets, they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire - from spiritualist seances to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany. What emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passion and ideas.

    Inga E. Calvin says: "audible poetry"
    "Very Slow"
    Overall

    I just couldn't get into this read.
