    Would you listen to The Odyssey again? Why?

    Yes because it was a difficult & somewhat boring in the beginning two chapters. Then sped up throughout the next several chapters & finished very strong.


    What other book might you compare The Odyssey to and why?

    The Illiad also by Homer very similiar books & equally as good.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ingenius way he overcame the suitors.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It's one of the greats for sure. This was my 2nd time reading it. First was in high school & I think it would benefit anyone who read it in school to reread now that they are older & experienced real modern day life. I took away a completely different understanding 2nd time around & some 30 yrs between readings. It takes an awful time getting started or at least it did for me. The first few chapters I truly suffered thru them but after that I didn't want to stop and the last 3 chapters I couldn't put it down I had to finish it.

    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.
