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.

DEATH IN WILDERNESS

The protagonist Chris McCandless would never have imagined in his wildest dreams that his death in Alaskan Wilderness would make him a worldwide phenomenon thanks largely to the book ???Into the Wild??? by Jon Krakauer and Sean Penn???s movie by the same name.

At age 22 Chris McCandless left his home, abandoned his car mid-way, worked at odd jobs to earn money, hitch hiked to various places in America and finally went to Alaskan Wilderness to have a sojourn of solitude by living off the land. He intended to return to civilization but finally succumbed to starvation or perhaps accidental po...

The protagonist Chris McCandless would never have imagined in his wildest dreams that his death in Alaskan Wilderness would make him a worldwide phenomenon thanks largely to the book ???Into the Wild??? by Jon Krakauer and Sean Penn???s movie by the same name.

At age 22 Chris McCandless left his home, abandoned his car mid-way, worked at odd jobs to earn money, hitch hiked to various places in America and finally went to Alaskan Wilderness to have a sojourn of solitude by living off the land. He intended to return to civilization but finally succumbed to starvation or perhaps accidental poisoning.

The author portrays a haunting storyline right from Chris???s childhood days, the relationship with his parents which steadily detoriated, the lives of many people he touched on his way and the affection they all hold in their hearts for Chris McCandless.

Perhaps he was an eccentric, perhaps he was reckless in his pursuits, perhaps he was an idealist (holding writings of Jack London and Thoreau in high esteem), perhaps he was ill prepared to move to Alaskan Wilderness by not carrying enough food rations, maps or compass, perhaps he was just unlucky to have got stuck up over there. People may call him a martyr or a fool but in spite of all this he was basically a nice guy at heart who firmly believed in following his dreams to the extreme, now ask yourself how many of us really try do that ?

Jon Krakauer is an excellent writer and captures the essence of the protagonist in a simple storyline often drawing parallels between his and McCandless???s life. Other than knowing about the life and death of John McCandless this book is definitely a must read for all those who love outdoor life and fail to see its associated pitfalls.

The Story Contradicts... Yet Inspires.

The story of Chris McCandless confuses, contradicts yet strangely inspires. I read it during a time when I was going through a similar identity crisis in my head... an endless state of confusion and the itch to find my own in this world.

It's a bit heavy for casual reading but it leaves you with a nice message at the end. Read it just for the way it taps into your inner rebel.

For all those who are looking for inspiration

I bought this book after reading one of its quote " Happiness is only real when shared " . Its like the entire book is filled with words and sentences that will make you ache to do what he did. There are no happy endings, just reality in its truest form
A must read for all those who wants to fill the wanderlust inside of them.

beautiful.

Personally, im in love with this book. its a perfect blend of the the protagonist's (Chris McCandless) letters, the authors comments and a sense of deep understanding of the protagonist's search for answers to life. There is a thrill of adventure mixed with life and its realities, giving this book a credibility and making it realistic.
Chris' search in various parts and ways is very similar to one's own search through life. it touches the heart and breaks it and is a must read for those who love adventure, and want to explore life.

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 h...

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
