For Instance, when the narrator tries to Sheila by telling her about fishing, she says that she hates fishing. This causes the boy to change his identity and not being who he truly is. After trying hard to get sheila to like him, she goes over to him and says “You´re a funny kid you know that?” (5). This is a good realization for the character because he realizes that things will not always work out, even if you try hard. The narrator gave up several things including cutting the line and changing his identity and ended up with nothing.

The fish seems to be caught by fishers frequently but manages to escape each time, this time was different.

Richard Parker 's Enlightenment A key moments in the book happens during the flying fish "plague." Pi watches fish jump aboard the lifeboat. As he unsuccessfully tries to collect them, he looks up to see Richard Parker eating with ease or even grace: "Actually, it was not so much the speed that was impressive as the pure animal confidence, the total absorption in the moment.
