Life of Pi

Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 50 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi takes a good look at the lifeboat and gives us the facts: twenty-six feet long, eight feet wide, and three-and-a-half feet deep.
  • There are benches at regular intervals; the tarpaulin is unrolled past the middle bench.
  • In looking back, Pi realizes the details often saved him.
