Life of Pi


by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 31 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Mr. Kumar the Muslim meets Mr. Kumar the biologist at the zoo. Oh snap.
  • It turns out fine. Quite well, actually. Both charm Pi with their curiosity and wonder. (You can imagine Pi turning to someone and saying: "And that's why atheists and religious folk are better than agnostics." We wish he'd give agnostics a break.)
