It's been awhile since I read Pi but I remember that the ending had a different feel to it so you could be right. I would have to re-read it to really comment but maybe that was intentional. The parts of the book where Pi is interacting with the Tiger seemed so real and it wasn't until the end that I wondered if it was an allegory. Either the author ran out of ideas at the end or he was trying to make the reader think. Good discussion though! :)
You didn't like Life of Pi? I had a discussion with others who read the book about whether or not there was really a tiger in the boat or was the whole story allegorical. I felt as I was reading the book that it was all real, but the end left me wondering what were we to think? I can't decide if I think the tiger was real or if the tiger was a metaphor for something.
