Into the Wild | Jon Krakauer
post image

#IntotheMystic | I‘ll never truly understand this story, but Jon Krakauer did a respectable job of trying.


Carleneishere My husband read a book (or maybe a long form article?) about Chris McCabdliss written by his sister that he said shed a lot of understanding on their family 8mo
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) 8mo
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. 8mo

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 🙄 8mo
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. 8mo
Cinfhen Such a sad story 8mo
kspenmoll Agree with you all-Incredibly sad and pointless loss of life. After reading the book I just could not watch the movie. 8mo
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. 8mo
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. 8mo
Clare_Riley @britt_brooke I‘ll be waiting to see what you think of his sisters take on it. 8mo
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) 8mo
britt_brooke @kspenmoll I wonder about his mental health, too. Curious if the sister‘s book sheds light on this. 8mo
britt_brooke @kspenmoll Interesting - thanks! 8mo
Suet624 I‘ve always loved this picture of Chris. My brother is very similar to Chris and I‘m often surprised he‘s still alive. 8mo
readinginthedark @kspenmoll Thanks for the link! I think I'll have to read that one. 8mo

#IntoTheMystic is just one of those songs that kinda makes you feel like you're on drugs without drugs. I love the experience 😂😂😂 Pink Floyd is the best for that #MarchIntoThe70s @Cinfhen @Lizpixie

Cinfhen Ha🙌🏻😂so true 8mo
gradcat Ha ha ha...I just listened to it yesterday, and I agree with you 100%! 8mo

“This song never ceases to make me happy. If I had a top-five song list, this would be on it.” I leaned my head back against the leather seat and let #IntotheMystic pour over me.

This is this week‘s Penguin Modern, number 11 in the set. It does fit rather well with today‘s prompt #intothemystic, but goodness me, it‘s hard going! 😒


TrishB Only little....you can do it. 8mo
squirrelbrain I did it @trishb! Second story was better than the first, but I don‘t think I‘ll be rushing to read more... 8mo
TrishB Yay 🎉😘 8mo

gradcat Your latest posts are conspiring to educate me, I must admit! 😂 8mo
squirrelbrain @gradcat, educating you on which books *not* to read?! 🤣 8mo
gradcat Not at all, @squirrelbrain For one, I was unaware of the story of Windrush until I read your post, and this post tells me of an author I‘ve never even heard of...so you are filling in my gaps (read: ignorance), so to speak, and I love it!! 🥰 8mo
squirrelbrain @gradcat that‘s lovely of you to say so - I think we all learn from each other on a Litsy don‘t we?! 8mo
gradcat Indeed. Hope you keep on educating me...it keeps me enthusiastic! 8mo
