Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 79 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi describes the sharks that swim around the lifeboat, especially at dawn and dusk.
  • Pi recounts how he once caught a small mako: impulsively he reaches into the water to pull it out, and as it leaps into the air, Pi throws the shark towards RP's den.
  • A shark vs. tiger fight ensues. RP wins.
