FC: The Life of Pi and The Monomyth | By Ima Student
3: The Call The call in Life of Pi is when Pi, short for Piscine, first enters a church and talks to the priest about Christianity. Pi is confused by the idea of Christianity because he was raised Hindu. Pi compared it to several lions attacking the other animals in his father zoo. He then thought it would be like his father saying “I have decided that the only way the lions can atone for their sins is if I feed you to them” (Martel 53). This may seem odd for a call, but the whole book is really about a boy’s connection with God as he tries to survive in the Pacific.
