Life of Pi
by Yann Martel
Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 40 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- We're back to the end of Chapter 37: Richard Parker has pulled himself up into the lifeboat and Pi is in the water.
- Pi watches shark fins slice through the water. This, he thinks, is not good.
- He wedges his oar in between the tarpaulin and the bow of the boat and pulls himself up. He's now on an oar above shark-infested waters. And Richard Parker is still in the boat.
