Life of Pi

  

by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 25 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi laments the small-mindedness of some zealots. He more or less says: God doesn't need anyone to defend Him, right? Shouldn't we help the poor?
  • He goes on: the real battle against evil is within us. (A teacher somewhere is writing the words dramatic irony on the board.)
  • Pi realizes he's got to lay low if he's going to practice so many faiths. He doesn't stop: he's just more discreet.
