He suppose the sacrificial story of Christianity confusing when compared to the might of the Hindu gods, and he observes, “What a blunt fate story. Chiba exchange weary, sarcastic asides about Pi’s uncommon behavior and new stories. Okamoto and Mr. Pi institute humor in religion, even though he takes it seriously. In the limit, even in his hallucination, he recognizes that death is imminent. At one point he and the Frenchman speak to one another in poetry. Some things to consider: Why didn’t the algae kill Pi when it entered his body if it was acidic in darkness? The island provided a place for both Pi and Richard Parker to gain their spirit before hitting land and in Pi’s story he was able to climb trees and Richard Parker was strong again, yet when they landed the whelp fell several times on his passage into the jungle from weakness and it clearly states in chapter 1 that Pi could hardly take any steps on his own at the season he hit land. He left the island and guess land the very next day, again if he had rejuvenated there, why was he so weak within 24 hours? I think a very short age actually occur but he was weaving hallucinations and present death the last day or two at which step his mind fabricates the island as yet another utmost case of the human will for survival. It’s a horrifying moment at the end of the book when you realize that the barbaric naturalness of man is more believable than Pi’s story of survival on the Pacific in a lifeboat with a bengal tiger. I think the most poignant part of the book is Richard Parker’s separation but that is a different discussion. Pi’s hazy state of mind convinces him he is talking to Richard Parker. He finds everything he necessarily on the island, and yet nothing. Part 2, Chapter 90, when Pi talks to the blind Frenchman, makes dark humor out of Pi’s shock when the Frenchman set forth eating meat in blood detail. I really miss that tiger. This conversation also accomplishes a tonal shift central to the narrative, which contrasts various tones—light and dark—to mock the unpredictability of real life.
