Life of Pi

Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 39 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi lands on the tarpaulin covering of a lifeboat. He's unhurt but has lost the lifejacket (still has the whistle, though).
  • A zebra runs across the deck and jumps overboard into the lifeboat as well, missing the tarpaulin, and breaking a bench, but otherwise succeeds in lowering the lifeboat into the water.
