Hey! just finished reading "into the wild" for my school's summer reading, and was wondering what everyone thought of the book and the character Chris McCandless. I thought it was a very well-written story and it seemed like the author answered all my questions(for a change!)
when i thought Chris probably had planned to commit suicide while out in the wild- the author not only gave proof that Chris did NOT, he also gave an explanation for what was most likely going through Chris's mind during his adventures.
i also loved chris as a character- despite his many flaws, he was ostensibly a sincere and likable individual, reminding me a lot of Phineas from A Seperate Peace.
