Review

Terrifying . . . Eloquent . . . A heart-rending drama of human yearning. (New York Times)

A narrative of arresting force. Anyone who ever fancied wandering off to face nature on its own harsh terms should give a look. It's gripping stuff. (Washington Post)

It may be nonfiction, but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order. (Entertainment Weekly)

An astonishingly gifted writer: his account of 'Alex Supertramp' is powerfully dramatic, eliciting sympathy for both the idealistic, anti-consumerist boy - and his parents. (Guardian)

A compelling tale of tragic idealism. (The Times)

“Youth is wasted on the Young!”
- The great GB Shaw opined thus. ‘Into The Wild’ is the tale of a young man on whom youth was wasted. Wasted but not thrown away.

Christopher Walt McCandless was a young man that went into the Alaskan wild, leaving his parents and siblings behind, donating all his savings, abandoning his car, possessions and even burning whatever little money he had in his wallet, thus shaking away the shackles of financial security. He went away from the human civilization not because he was a glum recluse or a misanthropist. He was just one of those innumerable youngsters who feel that the answers to the testing questions of Life can be found only far away from Life and not by being in it on a day-to-day basis.

With evidently little preparation but abundant confidence that is the trademark of Youth, Chris headed into the Alaskan wilderness determined to make a living ‘off the land’, by hunting and eating whatever he could gather there, far away from the nearest human being. Little would he have known that this would be his last venture away from his family, because his lifeless body was found in emaciated state, four months after he went in.

There are so many arguments already about whether Chris was right or wrong, wise or foolish and so on and hence I will cut them all out from my review. What stood out for me from this tale were a few things. Chris wasn’t impudent or headstrong. Ask any youngster about what his idea of a wildest adventure is and he will tell you about living untethered. Having had ideas of traveling across the country myself, alone in my bike, I could vouch for the forces that could have pushed Chris onwards.

"In to the wild" has been a movie I have been most attached too and this made me to pick up this book and understand the protagonist, Alexander Supertramp (Chris McCandless) even better. No doubt book is far better than the movie and seldom made me doubt if Chris is something of a role model for the people to follow or disregard as some odd immature hippie. The series of discussions and comparisons throughout the book makes me understand Chris far better than in the movie.
Chris basically disregard everything that comes easily to him, the reason being the parents with whom he was not comfortable with after learning their past. He did not want to associate with them and thus wanted to prove his mettle by challenging himself by being away from the society, into the solitude and without any human bonds around.
Visiting "Fairbanks bus 142" was in my bucket list and this book made it even more promising.

This book have really moved me. This book holds adventure in its every page. It tells you how beautiful the nature is and how dangerous it can get. You won't be able to put it down. It will in some points reflect your own life.You will feel attached to its pages. You will find peace by its sentences. Ending is so heart wrenching. Its so horrific. If you understand the book and character well it will be your favourite book of lifetime. It would be great experience reading it. Order it.

I did see the movie which was good , however wanted to read the book to have a better insight of the whole story. The author has superbly penned down each incident in detail. A must read.

This book tells the story of Chris McCandless, his deep longings for overpowering nature, his difficult moral positions about the world & his family, his pendulous swings between society & solitude, & finally the ambivalent positions we all take in separating the righteous from the dreamy.

In learning about Chris's life, Krakauer has excelled. In telling his story, he has produced a masterpiece.

I'll probably never understand the heart and mind of those people who gave up on civilization to go live in the wild as much as I don't understand transsexual persons but I respect them.
