Life of Pi
Conclusion Presentation of Life of Pi
By : Yann Martel
Conclusion
Pi and Richard Parker, after their journey finally washing ashore on a Mexican beach. Richard Parker runs off, and villagers take Pi to a hospital.These wo officials from the Japanese Ministry of Transport interview Pi about his time at sea, hoping to get answers about the doomed ship. Pi tells the story but it does not fully satisfy the skeptical men. So he tells it again, this time he replaced the animals with humans: a ravenous cook instead of a hyena, a sailor instead of a zebra, and his mother instead of the orangutan. The officials note that the two stories match and that the second is far likelier. In their final report, they commend Pi for living so long with an adult tiger.
