    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"
    "Delightful delivery, wonderful experience"
    Overall

    Characters come alive in this beautifully read masterpiece. Jerry Parker has joined our family, after the kids listened to part of it with me on a long drive.

    Highly recommended, probably better than in print.

    Fiona says: "Interesting marred by poor narration"
    "Poor reading spoils it"
    Overall

    The monotonic voice full of mispronounciations rather spoils this.
    Also Scientific American doesn't seem to work well without the illustrations.
