QUOTES FROM Rafe Spall CHARACTERS

Adult Pi Patel
So which story do you prefer?
Writer
The one with the tiger. That's the better story.

If it happens, it happens, why should it have meaning?
Writer
[reading off the report] Mr. Patel's is an astounding story, courage and endurance unparalleled in the history of ship-wrecks. Very few castaways can claim to have survived so long, and none in the company of an adult Bengal tiger.
