Life of Pi

Life of Pi Part 3, Chapter 100 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • The author interjects. He summarizes Mr. Okamoto's official report, which offers a few theories on the sinking of the Tsimtsum but says they're all more or less unverifiable. The cause goes unexplained.
  • In an aside, Mr. Okamoto commends Pi for his courage and endurance.
  • Mr. Okamoto also reports that no other story in the history of shipwrecks compares to Pi's.
