Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 59

By Yann Martel

Part 2, Chapter 59

  • Pi gets down to business. Pi pulls his raft up to the lifeboat.
  • Pi inspects RP's den: it smells like urine and there's rainwater sloshing around. Pi decides he'll drink some of that rainwater and then piss on his territory above the tarpaulin. Just to make things clear.
  • Pi improves his raft. He has a little snack.
  • Pi also notices all the fish swimming alongside the lifeboat. He feels a little bit of calm, a little hope.
