Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 66 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi becomes an expert fisherman. He uses a net to lure the fish close to the raft and then impales them with a gaff.
  • Pi kills and scales so many fish for him and RP that he starts to glitter. He thinks of the tilak, the Hindu mark of the divine.
  • Pi is now catching hawksbill turtles, too.
  • Pi reminisces about his days before the sea when he was a vegetarian. He realizes he's descended to savagery.
