Life of Pi

Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 51 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi keeps looking around the lifeboat. Shouldn't there be a locker with emergency rations?
  • He finds it underneath the tarpaulin, in the bow of the boat. He has to unroll the tarpaulin and peek into RP's den, but he's so thirsty he doesn't care.
  • There's a locker. It's got water. Pi parties like it's 1999.
  • There's food, too.
