    " The story Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer intrigued me and told a story that reminded me of what I wanted to do when I was younger. However, his story was inspiring. It is about Chris who left college and donated all his money to charity. Then with his supplies he left and decided to wander around the world. The author tries to track down his story and fins people who met Chris. It tracks his story and his trek to Alaska. The book is amazing and he really spent time creating the story. I recommend this book to anyone who likes survival stories and if you enjoyed the book Hatchet then you will probably enjoy this story as well. "

    " Interesting life, how a misguided young man causes his own death through ignorance. Almost a romanticized view of American life, adventure in the wild, self reliant, and ultimately unwilling to accept one's own limitation in knowledge. "

    " Really? Has to be the most boring and uninteresting book I have read yet. I only finished it because it was for a team challenge and had no time to pick another book. "

    " Into the Wild by John Krakauer is a story about the controversial young man Chris McCandless. He was from a wealthy family, about to go to law school and he was extremely intelligent. However, he decided that he would donate all of his possessions and travel around the country with little to nothing on him. He hitchhiked to the Alaskan wilderness, mostly unprepared for his journey, and was eventually found dead in an abandoned bus. The main conflict is Chris fighting nature when he enters Alaska Krakauer explores the controversy surrounding Chris and reveals his opinions on his actions. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book, Krakauer explores the motives behind Chris's journey to the wilderness, which I found remarkably intriguing. I Enjoyed how Krakauer supplemented Chris's story with his own tales of traveling to the Alaskan wilderness. I would strongly recommend this book. The way Krakauer reveals Chris's story and all of the controversy is well paced and incredibly interesting. However, this book is not devoid of flaws, the way Krakauer transitions from his own tales or Chris's story can sometimes fell awkward and out of place. Krakauer has a extremely descriptive style that benefits the story greatly, he has an immense range of vocabulary, however, the words never seem demeaning or daunting and most always make sense in context. This descriptive style is beneficial to this particular story, Krakauer can describe the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Krakauer also has a very philosophical style of writing, he often will write passages that make me ponder life and society, such as, “The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure” ( Krakauer 57). It is extremely wonderful how Krakauer explores human nature and nature of society through Chris McCandless' story. Krakauer wants to demonstrate how we must follow our hearts, no matter what society thinks. Krakauer shows his support for Chris and his decision to leave the “normal” life and peruse his dreams. Chris's ego eventually brings his downfall, however Krakauer still respects Chris and his decisions. "
