Life of Pi
by Yann Martel
Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 72 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Pi makes a shield from a hawksbill shell. He begins Stage 2 of the RP Training Program: stamping on the edge of the tarpaulin until RP smacks the turtle shell out of his hands.
- Pi learns to read RP's signals.
- Pi can now back down from RP and, if RP gets too close, Pi rocks the boat and blows on his whistle.
- This is effective. The training program is working.
