I'LL RECONSIDER MY FOOLISH NOTION/I NEED SOMEONE TO HOLD ME, BUT I WAIT FOR SOMETHING MORE: In Part 1 of our Life of Pi book club discussion, we talked about our unreliable narrator's stories and which one(s) we think are true. This isn't a book about boys and tigers, though -- it's a book about religion. How do Pi's stories inform his discussion of religion? How does religion inform his stories of his journey? And what is Martel -- the real one, not the fictional one -- saying about religion? Put another way, is Pi a spiritual man or a pragmatic one?
