By examining the true story of Chris McCandless, a young man, who in 1992 walked deep into the Alaskan wilderness and whose SOS note and emaciated corpse were found four months later, internationally bestselling author Jon Krakauer explores the obsession which leads some people to explore the outer limits of self, leave civilization behind and seek enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature. Made into a critically acclaimed film by Sean Penn and starring Emile Hirsch.

The Best Book with soo many lines from great writer like JACK LONDON

You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right

Don't let the darkness take 'em
Don't make 'em feel forsaken
Just lead them safely to the light

An honest man

I wouldn't call him misguided or anything, it would do a great disservice to Christopher McCandless's life.
I am an outdoorsman myself and can understand the attraction of living alone in the forest, the sheer joy of living naked in the woods the way we have done for the last million years. It's just that it takes years of training and experience before you can attempt that and even after that it's 80% luck.

This kid was a good kid who needed a good tutor that's all, the world is a sadder place because we lost him.

INTO THE WILD

I enjoyed the book. I identified with Christopher. At his age, I was also hooked on the spirit of adventure Jack London gave so many of us. I disagree that Christopher had a death wish, but like so many men- he was seeking the silence, serenity, and beauty that only being alone in the wilderness can bring. The book also reminded me of the story of Dick Proenneke, who spent 30 years alone in the Alaskan wilderness and built a cabin that still stands today- using only hand tools. The main difference was that Dick started out on his journey when he was 50 and had already acquired many trade skills and wisdom that gave him the knowledge on how to survive (and thrive) in the wild.

i have seen the movie, why buy a book?

for people who are reluctant to buy (as i was) this book because they have seen the movie--the news is that this book is much wider in scope. for starters. apart from chris's story it has interesting stories of people like gene rosellini, carl mc cunn and krakauer himself which are far more intersting than the original story.

and as far as the chris's attitude is concerned am not a big fan. for a guy who loathes evils of capitalism, he hitchhikes in cars, trains which are the most visible products of capitalism. he is just being a burden to other people.

and when he is starving he would have longed to get back to civilization..may be get a burger from Mc Donalds or whatever. he just keeps running away from himself and gets nowhere and if he had survived it would have been a stupid story

i am giving these 4 stars for JON krakauer's adroit writing not McCandless story
