Life of Pi: Chapter 2 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
The narrative switches to the author’s point of view, and he describes the adult Pi as a small, gray-haired, middle-aged man. He wears a winter coat in the fall and speaks quickly and expressively.
These sections remind us of the book’s “nonfiction” framework and also introduce the adult Pi even as we learn the events of his youth.
