Vikas Adam is the perfect narrator for this incredible novel. He delivers its lyrical style with energy and complete believability. After a Japanese cargo ship moving zoo animals from India to North America sinks, zookeeper's son Pi Patel is left alone on a 26-foot raft with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger with the incongruous name of Richard Parker. Definitely not a Disney movie, this is a realistic, heart-thumping account, which Adam delivers with verve, intelligence, and sensitivity. More than a fable, often humorous, always compelling, this tale is infused with the wonder of a teenage boy who finds himself in an unimaginable situation for 227 days. Must listening! S.J.H.
