    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "Almost a five star..."
    Overall

    This book is beautifully written and hard to "put down." I found myself sitting in the parking lot outside work not wanted to walk away from the story. My only criticism is that the female narrator had a totally flat presentation. She has no inflection or acting ability. The male narrator was excellent.

    Story

    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.

    "Great Story"
    Overall

    But the narration was very annoying. Still worth listening. The book gets off to a slow start, but once it gets going, it's pretty terrific.

  • Song of Susannah: The Dark Tower VI

    The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

    Daniel F. Webster says: "Undoing the writer's block!"
    "Losing Sight of a Great Story"
    Overall

    I've really enjoyed the Dark Tower series up until the last two books. While Wolves of Calla was still clever and a decent story, King seems to have no idea what to do with these characters any more. Song of Susannah was hugely self-serving casting King as a god-like character in his own book. Really disappointing. I'm almost afraid to see how it ends.
