    This book is a wonderful cautionary tale I will probably read it again with my daughter when she is old enough to discuss it Unfortunately, I m afraid the reason most people will read the book and see the new upcoming movie, is for a different reason Chris McCandless in the book, and from what I understand in the movie , is a hero and courageous for flying in the face of everything he grew up wit

    I live a life, I suspect, that is much like yours Wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to bed At the end of this weekly desert, there might be a drink or ten to celebrate the victory over another five days of soul crushing drudgery.I am a desk jockey A paper pusher I mean that literally I sit in my office, and when people peer inside, they will see me moving a sheet of paper from one side to the

    My grandfather not an Alaskan but an experienced outdoorsman would have tied this kid to a tree and let the bears play tetherball with him.A small part of me appreciates the effort Krakauer put into researching this book A much bigger part of me is completely disgusted both with McCandless himself and with Krakauer s mindless adoration of him Krakauer pulls out all the stops to make McCandless look like a phenomen

    okay lets address the elephant on goodreads, which is the common theme of essentially bashing chris mccandless in reviews i have seen so many ranting about how irresponsible and selfish and arrogant and unprepared he was and i mean, theyre not wrong, but that honestly has nothing to do with the book what i love most about this is how objective krakauer is he neither praises nor critiques mccandless, but presents the facts

    Overall, I was pretty disappointed with this book The genesis of the book was an in depth magazine article, and I suspect that the article was superb But I just don t think there s enough here to warrant an entire book As evidence, I point to several lengthy chapters that have nothing to do with the underlying story they discuss other people who have gone into the wild and, surprisingly, Krakauer includes a whole chapter about hims

    I love Jon Krakauer I didn t find one single thing about the Alex McCandless even remotely interesting He came across as a spoiled brat with no concept of reality basically because of his priveleged upbringing But somehow, he blamed his parents for that void of myopic self absorption I live in Alaska and I ve lived in Idaho and Colorado and Oregon basically AROUND people who love the great outdoors I am comfortable in a heated coffee shop

    In 1992, roughly around the same time Chris McCandless was living out his final days in the Alaskan wilderness, I would have been enjoying the summer holidays before embarking on my final year at school, contemplating the big wide world and what I was going to do with the rest of my life It wasn t until watching Sean Penn s film in 2008 I would learn of Chris s story, a story that moved me, immensely.I always presumed Jon Krakauer s book would be so

    We are all heroes to ourselves McCandless was, Krakauer is This doesn t vary All that varies is how we define heroism and how much, or how little, we are prepared to do to for that stance.In order to get people, usually young men, to sacrifice their lives we tell them of those that went before and tell them they were heroes who died for their countries, died for their principles, died even for their dreams Impractical dreams that are the province of the youn

    This book got me riveted in the tragic story of Chris McCandless, a young man who left his family and friends, abandoned most of his material possessions, went to the Alaska wilderness and perished there The author does a great job of portraying McCandless complex personality through meticulous research based on interviews, letters and journal entries The writing is so engaging that although it is already clear from the beginning how McCandless story would end, I was

    On the outside looking in, this seems like another case of arrogant human vs unassuming nature Nature usually wins that fight It did here and in a most tragic way And yet, in Into the Wild Jon Krakauer does an excellent job of muddying up the waters, so that they flow with the natural fluidity of life itself Was this kid so very unprepared Was this a foolhardy and unnecessary death easily avoided with a few, slight precautions Life is seldom black and white, cut and dr
