Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 58 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi takes a look at the British Royal Navy survival manual. Some helpful, some hilarious.
  • Pi begins to devise a training program for RP.
  • Pi thinks about improving his raft.
  • And, most importantly, Pi realizes he can't dream about ships rescuing him. He's got to bring about his own survival.
  • Pi looks out at the ocean, which, if you haven't seen it lately, seems infinite. Pi bursts into tears.
