ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "Life of Pi." Sixteen-year-old Pi and his family are emigrating from India to Canada, along with their family zoo. On the rain catcher the rain made a drumming sound and around me, coming from the darkness beyond, it made a hissing sound, as if Pi were at the centre of a great nest of angry snakes. Pi tried to keep a small part of me dry and warm, around my chest, where he had placed the survival manual, but the wetness spread with perverse determination. The rain grew stronger and the sea rougher as the night progressed. At first the water had a rubbery taste, but quickly the rain rinsed the catcher and the water tasted fine.
