Cannibalism In Yann Martel's Life Of Pi

372 Words2 Pages
In the book “Life of PI” there are two versions or stories, one is about how PI makes friends with a tiger on the lifeboat and the other animals eat each other, and also the other version where Pi ends up eating the other humans. I believe that the second version is true. Even though cannibalism is a horrific topic to think about it is more realistic. Though I do believe the second version is true, but the first one isn 't necessarily wrong. Since Pi has trouble killings a fish on the lifeboat, “It was split open and bloody on one side of his head...I wept heartily over this poor little deceased soul.”(pg.183), I think it is possible that he is so shameful of his doings that he makes up the first version to hide what he has actually done.
