Review
Life of Pi
"It's the plain truth: without Richard Parker, I wouldn't be alive today to tell my story." (164)
Richard Parker motivates Pi to continue on surviving aboard on the lifeboat. It reveals that Richard Parker has made Pi a better person and made him not think about his family that much, Pi just wants to survive and be on land as soon as possible. The quote represents survival and fighting on whats important. As for Richard Parker, he always finds a way to occupy Pi's mind.
I really loved this book because its just emotional and shows the struggles on surviving alone. As for a boy like Pi, living a tragic life, with the loss of his family, him being alive stranded in a lifeboat, with a tiger, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. This book builds up fear and hopefulness and having the ability to survive is a huge impact.
This picture reveals how Pi wanted a Dorado fish and he grabbed the stick to show how RIchard Parker should back off and that its his.
