    "After viewing the movie "Into the Wild", i was curious if more detailed information could be found. I stumbled upon the book by Jon Krakeur and was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed this non-fiction book even more so than the movie. The author captures the characters reactions dealing with the death of the main character effortlessly. "

    "Into the Wild is certainly a well-written and captivating memoir. However, I believe it is debatable whether it is superior to fiction. As a woman who loves large cities and modern comforts, I found it hard to relate to Christopher, his motivations, and his journey."

    "Into the Wild is the story of Christopher McCandless and most people will be familiar with the movie by the same name. It's a great story of adventure and allows the reader to transport themselves into another place. McCandless is a controversial topic among outdoorspeople but I thought the book was a great read. "

    "This story is both sad and uplifting, focusing on the liberation of a young man who sets out to learn about his identity in the wilderness. The conclusion is well-known beforehand, but what happens in the time between is where the true story lies, and I recommend it to anyone interested in nonfiction stories about human nature."

    "The book Into the Wild is one of the best books i've read this year. Into the Wild explored themes of man versus nature and the role capitalism can play in limiting our freedom. The book takes the reader through a young man's desire to free himself from adult responsibilities, a toxic family, and a life he never desires. It is thus one of my favorite books and Christopher's story resonates strongly with how I felt after graduating college. "

    "Into the wild is a interesting book about teen rebellion but nothing special. Although it is a non-fiction book I found it to be somewhat boring and predictable. I finished the book but more then likely won't read it again. There are better options in my opinion. "

    "Great Biography"
  • Russell Schmidt
    Written on April 16, 2018
    "Best read with a grain of salt, this tale is about a man who decides to follow in the foot steps of two of his own personal heroes and leave the materialistic life behind. In doing so he disappears from the face of the modern world, leaving his family unawares and wandering into the wilderness in search of the freedom he desires. His journey eventually takes him north into Alaska where he would meet an untimely end in the wilds. A strong tale of self discovery, one would say this book acts as more of a warning. Self discovery is great, but trekking across Alaska with nothing to your name will almost always end with your body being discovered by a moose hunter."

    "This book was a beautiful story about a man how leaves his lives behind to live in the wild. He experiences the most beautiful things living off the grid and being in nature, but ultimately realizes that he can't fully realize the beauty of it while not sharing it with someone else. He eventually dies of exposure. This was a great book and was hauntingly more sad knowing it was a true story."
