i was really interested in this memoir by mccandless
So I really wanted to like this book as it was a tale of finding oneself, but there were numerous times I wanted to just shake the main character for being so selfish and foolish in his disregard for those who cared about him and how to survive when having an adventure. Worth the read, but frustrating at times.
A fascinating story that will make you think and leave you eager to explore. I had never heard about this man and his story, but afterwards, I had to look it up. The story is a little dry, especially compared to the movie, but still interesting.
