  • 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.

    A must read for all those who wants to fill the wanderlust inside of them.

    Unforgettable read

    Since I first saw the movie i was intrigued by such a real incident and when i came to know that its a book i just couldn't resist reading it. All along the pages I came to know a great young human being in Chris. The words he wrote were very heartful. And, kudos to the author, Jon Krakauer. He just did a great and outstanding non-fiction book. And especially the last sentence of the book just before the Epilogue will be a sentence that I will remember forever in my life.

    Worth every penny

    Good book. Have completed max chapter's but in between youl come across stories of similar people disappeared before mccandles and they aren't that interesting too go with when we are quite exited to know only about mccandles. I guess they are chapter 8, 9 & 10. Just ignore them if you don't find them interesting, so awesome book overall there is more than what you come across in movie , but before you start with this book it's better you watch movie and then start reading.

    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 l...
