    Description

    Into the wild is a book that is an exploration of the reasons behind the death of a young man, Chris McCandless. He abandons his possessions in order to experience solitude and explore the wild in his own way.

    Summary of the Book

    Chris, an intelligent young man who graduated with high grades, came from a wealthy and loving family. He was intelligent and graduated with double grades. However, this did not stop him from leaving everything behind and trekking into the wilderness where he could find a way to be close to nature. He was in search of something more deep and elusive in life. He had a yearning to explore and live a simple life. It was in the year of 1992 that he decided to give away his savings and start life anew and experience life in its simplest form. His family searched for him, but he had erased all tracks. Four months later they found his body in an abandoned bus. It was found by a moose hunter in a remote corner of the Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Jon Krakauer, the author of this book, wrote an article about Chris in the year 1993 for the Outside magazine. The reactions to the young man’s story were different. Some said that he was foolish and got what he deserved while others were in awe of his courage to go out and find meaning to his life.

    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.

    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.

    GREAT READING!

    Was searching for this book for a long time after watching the movie (more than 5 times)...

    having done a bit of travelling myself, this book captured the real essence of a person who wishes to go beyond the ordinary. it is sad that he had to die, but hey, what is life without adventure - definitely not worth living... a must read for those who wish to explore the WILD...

    Not a bad option for a good reader

    If you have already watched the movie then no need to read the book. This book is a story of a boy who left everything behind to wander into wilds. Not a great deal of story but kind a mixed literature. As not a great deal was known about boy's actual endevours so story revolves around him and the people he met during his journey. you may get bored in bwtween as same repetetive kind of narration goes on in the book.
