Without realising it, Pi’s love for stories developed in Pondicherry as his devotion to religion grew.
With a novel as dislocated as this, where the author and author’s note is just a fictional pretend journey of Pi, the only thing left is the reader’s extraction of ideas, diverged from the tales of the various narrators.
It is the stories that Pi tells himself that allow him to ultimately complete his journey from the sinking of the Tsitum to Mexico.
It was Pi’s gradual acceptance of his fate, and the faith he had in himself, which allowed him to open his eyes not just to just the beauty of the surrounding sea, but to the power and the commanding power and beauty of the Tiger within.
Through the ‘selective transformation of reality’ Pi turned his gruelling and grotesque 227 days at sea, into a spiritual journey that began in Pondicherry.
For me, I try to pretend I am basing my decision on "the preponderance of evidence", but the truth is, I just want to believe the story with the animals.
It is possible Yann Martel himself does not know which story is true.k4k I don't know.
Hi, I just wanted to do a statistical survey of people who read Life of Pi.
Which story did you believe: the one with the animals or the one without animals?
I'm not sure if as he was living it he saw it with the animals or if that's just how he thinks of it now.
As to the other end coming on quite quickly, that made sense to me.
