Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 49

By Yann Martel

Part 2, Chapter 49

  • Morning breaks. Pi lies on the tarpaulin, weak with hunger and thirst. This is day four.
  • Pi can't believe he failed to notice Richard Parker. But RP does explain the animals' strange behavior.
  • Pi decides he has no chance against RP and might as well find some food and water on the lifeboat. Don't these things come equipped with supplies? Pi decides to take stock.
