Would you listen to Lion again? Why?
Yes it is incredibly moving & a phenomenal story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Saroo a remarkable little boy & now a remarkable adult.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I loved this story. I cried in the first 5 minutes & was moved to tears many times. When listening to the story of Saroo's early life in India then when he arrived in Kolkata I kept having to remind myself "He's only 5"!
Any additional comments?
Being an Australian I found the narration really quite difficult to listen to at times, particularly early on, I did get sort of used to it by about halfway. A Canadian trying to sound like an Australian born in India & this time not succeeding. I think it would have been great if you could have had the author narrate it.
theres such a feeling of joy and contentment that radiated from this memoir which was overshadowed in the movie by his brothers and adopted brothers voices, and the overwhelming visual spectacle of the unfortunate children of calcutta.
A great book and i felt the story through the narrators emotive voice, but his fake aussie accent really annoyed me! At some points it kind of sounded abit irish and british which threw me off. 23 million people living in australia, around half are men and you couldnt pick one to do the narration?

Fantastic and fascinating true story. Narration in an annoying half Australian accent. Recommended and an essential companion to the film
