5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational read for those who venture alone, 3 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Into the Wild (Hardcover)
Jon Krakauer makes an attempt to understand the life of a young man (a.k.a. Alex Supertramp). This is the story of a gifted mountaineer/climber trying to ask 'why' somebody seeks adventure from Nature. The path Alex Supertramp takes is an inspiration to those that seek their own path in life. Krakauer traces the life of Alex (as the young Chris chooses to call himself) from his middle-class up-bringing, via the deserts, forests and seas of Western/Southern USA through to his death in Alaska.
Krakauer takes us inside the mind of Alex through quotes in books, which Alex had underlined while searching for answers to life. The story, mixed with Krakauer's own experiences, alone high on mountains, poses the questions 'why' do we walk 'Into the Wild'.
The writing is straight forward but captivating. This book, on the life of somebody, has been well constructed and a thought-provoking read. If you are searching of something in life - read this book.
