comment What would be the equivalent of the carnivorous island?
Here's author Martel's explanation: island served the sole purpose of making the “animal” version of the story harder and harder to believe. “Many readers assume it is something deeply symbolic they just don’t get, or it’s an hallucination –they need a reason to prop up the fiction.” But “religion goes beyond the confines of the reasonable”. from paula-greatstories.blogspot.com/2008/09/…

comment “Life of Pi” Final Insurance Report
no, I think you got the line right... just saying my interpretation of the meaning was different. I'd say the guy Pi was telling the story to didn't all of a sudden start believing in God... he just had a new understanding for why believing in God might be appealing.

comment “Life of Pi” Final Insurance Report
Agreed, except for last sentence above. I think by "make you believe in God" Pi was really saying "make you understand why others believe in God"

That's what's weird to me. How can you steal someone's identity at war and then expect to not be noticed when you go home? Wouldn't it have been easier to just stay Richard and never talk to Richard's relatives again?

Thanks. I figured this was the story. Just seems like a not-well-thought-out decision, given the complications that Richard would face when he returned to from the war, and people started saying "hey you're not Don." But it's TV -- I need to suspend disbelief!

Argh, I haven't seen the show (my bad for commenting regardless) and I guess the graphic isn't as straightforward as I thought. Oliver_C, I think your comment might be a good answer itself...
