English 101 Lynn Lowery 3/26/07 Life of Pi Ending Through the novel Life of Pi, author Yann Martel rekindles the flame of imagination lost by so many people. Most people have a difficult time believing in the truth because they either do not want to accept the truth, or their imagination simply does not allow them to see past reason. In the ending of Life of Pi , Martel gives his readers two sets of stories; one with animals and the other with humans. If asked which story is more believable, most people would answer the story with humans. However, if asked which story is more interesting, most people would answer the story with animals. Martel believes that the problem with most people nowadays only believe in what they can prove or see. He wants us to see not with our eyes, but with our imagination. Throughout this novel, the theme of blindness is consistently used. The blindness refers to those who are unable to use their imagination. Both Mr. Chiba and Mr. Okamoto have difficulty believing Pi’s initial story.
