    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.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Yann Martel and/or Jeff Woodman?

    Ok.. Life of Pi.. Indian book, I should have known.. However.. had I known it was an Indian accent as the narrator, I would not have purchased this book. And, had I known in time that I could have returned it, I certainly would have. If I wanted to listen to an Indian accent, I would have called dell. There's nothing wrong with an Indian accent, and I'm sure some people will like it as it probably adds authenticity to the book, I however found it very distracting.


    What was most disappointing about Yann Martel’s story?

    The narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His accent.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I honestly couldn't not listen to it long enough to find any.. Someday I would like to read the book as I have heard that it is good.. Although now, Ill probably be reading it in my head with an Indian accent.. and ruin it again.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
