Life of Pi: Chapter 15 Summary & Analysis

The author returns to describe the adult Pi’s house in Canada. He says the house is like “a temple,” as it is filled with religious icons and objects. The author notes paintings, statues, books, and photographs pertaining to Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity. Pi keeps a Bible on his bedside table.
Martel and Pi now shift from animal rituals to human religious rituals. The overlap of religion and zoology is again emphasized. Based on the contents of his house, Pi’s religious beliefs seem muddled and unfocused.
