This book isn't really my genre (I prefer fantasy/sci-fi) and the whole section leading up to him being stranded on the lifeboat didn't really do anything for me (this was like half the book).
Also the first half of the book had a lot of religious themes in it which I wasn't expecting although I did get this simply because it was on offer and so I didn't know anything about the book.
However the second half of the book that tells us the story of how he survived at sea was very good and enjoyable.
The narrator did a great job.

i would love to recommend this book and allow them to experience this tale that floats you far from reality into this journey in which Pi has been forced to take in order to survive
this is an adventure for survival and i am very fond of books in which you see the development of the character, but its so difficult to compare this to another book
there is only one character in which you can truly appreciate and his accent makes it all the more enjoyable and authentic
there is a film for this book already haha but it would be; tragedy and survival entangled with one in which is nor friend nor human
if you enjoyed the film as i did why not read the actual book and see how much more it has to give
The best bit was the last part, at least it was more 'listenable' than the start.
Take out the boring beginning to the story
Not to go and see the film. If it is anything like the book it must be a gory, horrible mess.
Loved listening to this story (despite minor elements of pronunciations which grated - e.g. buoy). Particularly enjoyed discussions on religion in the early chapters and the verbal sparring with the Japanese investigators.
Well constructed narrative of an unbelievable story and a brief tale of a more believable but far less satisfying version later on.
