An odd book, with a plot blurb that just wasn't all that enticing enough as I had the print book on my TBR for years before finally giving it away, even though so many recommended it. Then along came the audio, and I was hooked from the moment I heard Pi speak.
And that is a good deal of what kept the headphones glued to my ears. Pi speaking this deliciously different tale, in a voice obviously of a young man, who spoke words that sang due to the melody of his soft Indian accent.
I know I'd have read things with my eyes and thought it was good writing, but I would not have laughed out loud quite frequently, even at things that really were not all that funny, if not for Pi's voice and lilt, the sardonic humor that filled his spirit. The way he could not only emphasize words, but letters in those words.
He broke my heart, while I was laughing. He called out "Richard Parker" over and over, and I could not hear it enough.
Of course, this is due to Jeff Woodman, an amazing narrator, and the author, Yann Martel, with the most creative of minds.

I love this book. I love that Pi loves religion, is a devout Hindu who prays to Mecca, and goes to Mass, and probably keeps the Sabbath.
And I learned a lot about wild animals, too. Those in and out of a zoo.
