Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 86

By Yann Martel

Part 2, Chapter 86

  • An oil tanker passes by – so close, in fact, it almost runs over Pi and RP.
  • Pi tries blowing his whistle, sending up a flare, but the oil tanker doesn't notice them.
  • To keep RP's spirits up (and presumably his own) Pi tells RP that he loves him and promises they'll make it to land.
