Comparing Big Fish And Yann Martel's Life Of Pi

119 Words1 Page
Putting a situation into context that matches one’s own understanding makes the situation more meaningful. In both Daniel Wallace’s Big Fish and Yann Martel’s Life of Pi, the main characters’ stories and accomplishments are reflected on while themes of individuality and the meaning of life are exhibited throughout. Due to this, the quote that best applies to both books is, “The world isn’t just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no? Doesn’t that make life a story” (Martel 380)? Both books explore the concept of the way people experience a situation and how it coincides with how they perceive and understand the world around them.
