I have loved being read to as long as I can remember. With limited time in my life for reading, listening to novel on audio is like a dream come true. Love 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.

    As the story progressed I became slightly bored but was so happy to have finished it as the ending just blew me away, what man does for survival. Fabulous!!!

    Would you listen to The Light Between Oceans again? Why?

    Deeply delves into each character, a sad book but well written. A great story. Hope they make this into a movie.


    What does Noah Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Powerful emotions
