In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild.… (mer)

Tous les deux sont sombres puisqu’il y est question de mort, et tous les deux ont pour fond la beauté rude des paysages glacials de l’Alaska. C’est cette confrontation fatale entre le blanc de la neige et le noir de la mort qui m’a saisie dans ces deux livres, même si les raisons qui sous-tendent ces deux quêtes vers les paysages du Grand Nord sont (à première vue) sans point commun.… (mer)

I had never heard of Chris McCandless or seen the film when I came across this book. For me, just striding out into the wilderness has to be the ultimate adventure and to try and piece together his final days before he eventually succumbed to hunger and the elements.

The author of the book originally discovered the story whilst working as a reporter and published a story in a magazine, but later decided he wanted to research further and release a book.

It follows the life of Chris who to be honest doesn't exactly come across as a particularly nice person and seems at time arrogant. But he is a young man with his own path to lead. He treks across America pretty much as a loner until he decides to tackles the Alaskan wilderness. Various 'friends' are interviewed that he met on his travels and bit by bit we build up a picture of Chris and routes taken.

I enjoyed the book, however I'm not sure it wouldn't have been better as a more of an extended essay rather than a full novel, sometimes I just felt as if there was too much filler to try and pad out the pages. Obviously the author has done his research and this shines through, it is just that the book failed to interest me as much as I'd hoped. ( )

Immediately following his graduation from college in the early 1990's, Christopher McCandless shunned his family and almost all his material possessions (including his savings), got into his Datsun, and traveled throughout the western U.S., living largely off the land, picking up odd jobs here and there to earn a little cash to enable him to keep traveling. Eventually he ended up in the wilderness of Alaska, where he ultimately met his demise.

I'd had this audiobook on my shelf for a while, unread, until just recently, when the news reported that the infamous "bus" was being airlifted out of Alaska due to the number of people needing to be rescued who had gone in search of it, a few of whom actually died. That prompted me to want to know the backstory and thus I pulled it off the shelf and started reading.

This is certainly a sad and cautionary tale. Many people have criticized Chris McCandless for his ignorance in attempting something out of his depth. Indeed, he was a smart kid in a lot of ways, but somewhat ignorant when it came down to reality. While many may not agree with his methods or ideology, you do have to admire him for his unselfishness nature. It's just too bad that it all ended the way it did.

As for this book in particular, I didn't find it nearly as gripping as Kraukauer's Into Thin Air. There was a lot of filler in this one that wasn't really necessary, although some readers may appreciate the history and parallels to the author's life more than I did. Still, definitely worth the read. And now I'm off to watch the movie. ( )

I liked the original article very much. But this book is boring, far too little material spread out over a big book, as is so often the case with articles that get turned into books. I was also listening to this as an audio book and the person who was reading had an extremely monotonous, dense style. ( )

Far better than film and felt McCandless was a personality that was far easier to come to grips with. Krakauer's persons anecdotes and stories of people that resembled McCandless were fascinating in their own rights. ( )

Christopher McCandless's life and his death may have been meaningless, absurd, even reprehensible, but by the end of "Into the Wild," you care for him deeply.
 
Mr. Krakauer has taken the tale of a kook who went into the woods, and made of it a heart-rending drama of human yearning.

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
