Into the Wild
Into the Wild | Jon Krakauer
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.Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir.In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of hiscash.He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and , unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented.Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away.Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild.Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life.Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless.Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons.When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naivet, pretensions, and hubris.He is saidto have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity , and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page.From the Trade Paperback edition.

It‘s Non-fiction November! If you are looking for some good non-fiction reads, I have some great recommendations for you! https://youtu.be/Wnb5JWloupA

#booktube #nonfictionnovember #bookrecommendations ##goodbookstoread #nonfiction #readingnonfiction

UnidragonFrag 3 of those are ones I keep meaning to read! 1mo
See All 22 Comments
UnidragonFrag Evicted, As You Wish, and Vincent&Theo! 1mo
UnidragonFrag I've been leaning away from Into the Wild because whoa was that kid dumb, but you an d the author maybe a good point that all kids make dumb choices. Maybe I'll add that back onto my #tbr .. I didn't realise A Fire Story was a graphic memoir. Sounds interesting! 1mo
UnidragonFrag I don't know if you've read it, but it's in an adjacent vein as Evicted and the sort of results poverty can just wrought on a community and it was a just devastating read. Very well researched and incredibly infuriating. Probably one of my fave NF of 2019. 1mo
CaseyLea Into The Wild is a brilliant book! 1mo
Butterflyamore @UnidragonFrag I haven‘t read that but I‘ll add it to my list. If you end up reading any of these, let me know what you think. Chris‘s choices were definitely foolish and reckless but I definitely lean toward the perspective the author presented, especially as a parent to young adults who make some unwise decisions and knowing that neurologically, the part of the brain responsible for good decision making (frontal lobe) isn‘t fully developed until 1mo
Butterflyamore @UnidragonFrag roughly age 25. So I do so hope you‘ll give it a chance! He definitely offers some important information in the book but I respect wherever you choose to lean in your opinion in the end! Thanks for the recommendation, by the way! 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved As You Wish and Evicted! I can second both of those! 1mo
CaseyLea @Butterflyamore I felt like he just had too much naive optimism about what he would be able to achieve. I loved the way this book was written. 1mo
UnidragonFrag @Butterflyamore ah, I think I'll re-add it to the pile. Will deff let you know what I think. If he delivers a bit into that, I think that'd be interesting. And no problem about the recommendation! 1mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I don‘t read much non-fiction and I haven‘t read any of these books nor do I own any of them. If I read non-fiction it‘s usually true crime which recently I read about Ted Bundy and The Yorkshire Ripper. I am looking forward to reading Murder in the Stacks about a Penn State student killed in the library. One of the best non-fiction books I have read and found it most interesting is 1mo
Butterflyamore @CaseyLea Yes, definitely. And it‘s so understandable for young people. He just never got the chance to learn and grow through his mistakes. 😥 1mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB I have The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks but I have not read it yet. 1mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Really interesting story! 1mo
Scochrane26 @UnidragonFrag I recently listened to As You Wish & recommend it on audio. I also learned a lot from Dopesick. 1mo
UnidragonFrag @Scochrane26 If I read it, I'll probably do audio! I do most of my NF that way, otherwise it takes me like forever. Yeah, I did too with Dopesick. Made me more sympathetic to the situation. 1mo
Scochrane26 @UnidragonFrag I prefer NF as audiobooks, too. 1mo
Butterflyamore @Scochrane26 I recommended the audiobook of As You Wish in the video as well. It was so entertaining! I tend to prefer non-fiction for audiobooks, too, if I am going to listen to an audiobook. I find it‘s a lot easier for my brain to process non-fiction than fiction. I really need to see the words with fiction! 1mo

I liked how the book was able to provide viewpoints of those who were able to give a realistic picture of him outside of what his letters revealed about himself. Krakauer retraced Chris's steps by interviewing the people who came in contact with him while he drifted, and he created a timeline to explain it all. I listened to parts of this one on audiobook while I read the physical book, and the narrator did a great job of giving the story a voice.

ImperfectCJ I just introduced my children to the movie this past weekend. My son, with about fifteen minutes left, said, "Wait, does this movie have a happy ending?" I enjoyed the book even more than the movie; I think my daughter, at least, will pick it up. 3mo
JackOBotts @ImperfectCJ - this book rocked me. I read it in my first semester of college and was just stunned at the tragedy of his experience. I‘m sure being away from home for the first time played a part in that, but it has stayed with me. I thought the movie adaptation was good and enjoyed Eddie Vedder‘s score for the movie. I hope your kids decide to read it. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @JackOBotts It definitely prompted a lot of thought for me about the nature of self-sufficiency. At any point a small slip could have snowballed (so to speak), and so many times there were people to help him through. I rarely re-read, but now I want to pick this one up again. 3mo
marleed I love the soundtrack of this movie but much preferred the book. In the book I felt there was time to sink into his skin and appreciate what he went through. I was so excited to see the movie. Went with a friend who hadn‘t read the book. He thought - spoiled, arrogant rich kid. 3mo
JackOBotts @ImperfectCJ - agreed- I couldn‘t imagine doing something like this, myself. And then to have it end as it did. Tragic. @marleed - yes, I agree 💯. I appreciated the adaptation, and can definitely see your friend‘s POV (even having read the book first). It definitely takes a certain level of arrogance to just walk away with so little preparation...and to not let anyone know what you‘re up to! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3mo

I preferred the movie 🎥

bernadette I thought it was pretty good until Krakauer started inserting himself into the story in the latter half of the book. McCandless is a more interesting person than Krakauer. 4mo
Zelma @bernadette I completely agree. I thought some of his anecdotes didn‘t work in the story he told, and was a stretch to insert his own struggles into McCandless‘ story. Into Thin Air works a lot better (and is excellent) because it is actually his story as well as the other climbers; he is part of that tragic expedition. 4mo
bernadette I read Into Thin Air before I read Into the Wild and agree with you. When he inserted himself in McCandless' story, it felt intrusive and it just didn't fit well. I like Krakauer's writing though; I should see if he has published anything recently. 4mo

I just finished this book tonight. It is even better than Into Thin Air! As a former journalist-wannabe I‘m so impressed with Krakauer. Especially when you read the epilogue and learn the extent he went to to determine how McCandless died. Journalists like Krakauer are heroes and the world needs more of them. They should be celebrated for their tenacity and bravery! A better review to come but I had to take a minute to rave about this author.

SpaceCowboyBooks Under the Banner of Heaven is also worth a read. 6mo

Bookstore run for my daughter‘s 11th grade reading (tagged book), which I talked her into letting me read first. The rest were my own impulse buys.

heikemarie Ah yes, I remember reading this in high school! 7mo
Texreader @heikemarie This book was written past my time in high school. But I‘m curious why it was chosen for high school students. I also don‘t recall reading anything like it. 7mo
heikemarie @Texreader I think it‘s a great example of narrative nonfiction, which HS students should be familiar with. It also speaks to the innate drama in many high schoolers - giving up everything and striking out alone and all that. I didn‘t particularly love it, but it was a nice change of pace from all the dead white dudes we had to read - at least this white dude author was still alive. 7mo

I really enjoyed this book. I was fascinated not only by the life experiences of Chris McCandless but also the author Jon Krakauer. I think that there were a lot of parallels that Krakauer felt between himself and Chris. I am pretty sure I added this book 8 years ago to my to read list because I had watched the movie. I am glad I finally got around to reading it 😂

For my May book club we are reading the oldest book on our “to read” list. Mine is Into the Wild and I added it in 2011 😳 I can‘t be positive but I am pretty sure I bought this book around the same time I added it to my list. It has been sitting on my shelf for an embarrassingly long time. I am excited to finally read it!

Chris McCandless has a story that isn‘t unique. But that doesn‘t make it any less devastating and frustrating to read. I‘m glad I read this book. So many of my unanswered questions have been satisfied. Not only that but I learned so much about the Alaskan Wild. I want to visit, but I won‘t be going out alone anytime soon. Review continues in comments

BookBumming Also it directed me to my next read.. the book that had a hand in the inspiration of Chris McCandless‘s Alaskan Odyssey.. The Call of the Wild by Jack London published in 1903. 8mo

I had read this book, but I had never listened to the #audiobook. It was a throwback in that it was originally a Book on Tape! (Loved those!)

I didn‘t appreciate Krakauer inserting himself into the narrative. It just didn‘t work for me the way it did in Into Thin Air. ITA is also the more enjoyable audiobook. That said, I‘d still recommend ItW. Now on to The Wild Truth.

I enjoyed doing this Paint by Sticker while I listened.

Kimberlone Your comment about Krakauer inserting himself is the exact same thing I always say! It works in Into Thin Air but is really annoying/unnecessary in Into the Wild. 9mo
Megabooks @Kimberlone Yes! I think he, at least in his earlier books, thought, hmmmm, too much of himself and his own experiences. Not quite what I mean, but close. 9mo

Suet624 Beautiful photo! 9mo
Megabooks @Suet624 Thank you! 😊 9mo
britt_brooke Yep, that‘s definitely his style. It works well in Into Thin Air because he was indeed present and went through all of that, but it can feel a bit odd in his other books at times. 9mo
Megabooks @britt_brooke It‘s like he‘s uninterested unless it pertains to him. If I‘m remembering correctly Missoula is different, but that‘s probably due to the subject matter. I could only get 60% at the time I tried to read Missoula, though. 9mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks Yes, I think he‘s a bit into himself. 😬 Missoula is different. That‘s a tough one, but very good. 9mo

britt_brooke @Carleneishere His sister wrote a book, which I have, but haven‘t read yet. Thanks for the reminder! I need to move it up in my TBR. It‘s such a bizarre story. (edited) 9mo
Skyrimir I watched the movie first and I disliked Chris so much that it kept me from the book for years (I was pretty young when I saw it). Maybe it‘s maturity, but I think it‘s also Jon‘s ability to dig into the story and really shed light on Chris‘s possible motivations. I recommend the book over the movie every time now. I‘m curious to read his sister‘s book as well. 9mo

Clare_Riley @britt_brooke I watched the film many years ago, and it upset me so much that I couldn‘t stop thinking about it for weeks afterwards. I don‘t think I could read the book! It just seemed such a pointless loss of life, and the way he died really upset me - alone and scared, I should think. As you can see, I am the Queen of Overthinking 🙄 9mo
gradcat @Clare_Riley I think you might find that the book addresses your issues with a great deal of sensitivity...that‘s something Krakauer is good at. But you‘re absolutely right—it was a pointless loss of life. 9mo
Cinfhen Such a sad story 9mo
kspenmoll Agree with you all-Incredibly sad and pointless loss of life. After reading the book I just could not watch the movie. 9mo
britt_brooke @Skyrimir I watched the movie immediately after finishing the book. I‘ll never understand why he died this way, but it broke my heart because it seemed so avoidable. 9mo
britt_brooke @Clare_Riley @gradcat @Cinfhen @kspenmoll It‘s so sad, but seemed so avoidable. I‘m very curious about his sister‘s book and plan to read it soon. 9mo
Clare_Riley @britt_brooke I‘ll be waiting to see what you think of his sisters take on it. 9mo
kspenmoll Very avoidable in my mind but wonder about his mental health? Lack of planning, new names, impulsive, grandiose thinking re:Alaska or just ignorant. My brother lives in Alaska & people there have little sympathy ( according to him) as Alaska is a wild challenging place & it‘s wilderness demands preparedness. If he had a map, or knew about the seasons he might have survived. He seemed to think it was heroic to survive on his own with a few items. (edited) 9mo
britt_brooke @kspenmoll I wonder about his mental health, too. Curious if the sister‘s book sheds light on this. 9mo
britt_brooke @kspenmoll Interesting - thanks! 9mo

“I think maybe part of what got him into trouble was that he did too much thinking. Sometimes he tried too hard to make sense of the world, to figure out why people were bad to each other often. A couple of times I tried to tell him it was a mistake to get too deep into that kind of stuff, but Alex got stuck on things. He always had to know the absolute right answer before he could go on to the next thing.”

WOW!!! I cant believe I had never read this until now!! A must read for everyone even if the story is sad. I love that Krakauer actually investigated his stoty, interviewed people and visited the places Chris had been. I remember watching the movie but I had no idea it was this story. What a sad beautiful story.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

McCandless sought solitude and simplicity. His goals were admirable. His execution was flawed. This book tried to make sense of everything in between.

I really enjoyed Krakauer‘s writing style and although the story was incredibly sad, Into the Wild was an excellent read. I am very interested in reading more books by this writer in the future.
