5.0 von 5 Sternen Out there on your own
This is Krakauer's account and report on a young man - it is a true story - who left his family after graduating with honors, burning his money, cutting off all his ties to his background and venturing out on his own, travelling thoughout the United States. His ultimate adventure was to survive in the wilderness of Alaska. This, however, led to his premature death...

3.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful complicated journey
INTO THE WILD is a confusing book with a great plot for discussing. About three plot lines are carried on at the same time, where the auther Jon Krakauer is telling his story, side charectors stories are added in for benefit, and the main plot that continues on through the entire story. The main plot focuses on a young man, Chris McCandless, who has money and sucess and...

Seemed that there was not enough of a story to have a book written about this young man's death.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing at Best, 18. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
It appeared rather quickly that Mr. Krakauer knew very little about the young man Chris in this true story, and you get the impression he was trying to continue to ride the wave of his very successful book, Into Thin Air. The story flip flops between historical treks into the wilderness by other men and Chris' journey into the Alaskan wilderness, and eventual death. It is confusing (and rather boring) at times when Mr. Krakauer goes off on these tangents and loses the momentum of what he set out to investigate; Chris' self imposed seclusion. Mr. Krakauer makes a hero out of Chris for acting impulsively and deeply hurting his family. I found Chris to be self centered and self righteous, judgemental and juvenile. This book was a waste of time on all parts, and I couldn't wait for the end.
Unfortunately we will never know much about Chris, and can only guess at what drove him to enter the wild. But from the little background Mr. Krakauer uncovers, it appears he had a chemical and/or mental imbalance of some kind. I think his story and his family should be left alone. Shame on Mr. Krakauer for attempting to profit from their intense loss.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Why Glorify This Stuff?, 4. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
I was horrified all the way through this book. The man described was clearly suffering from a mental illness. The book was written as if to glorify an irresponsible way of life. This was not an adventure, it was about a man who could not cope with life, and tried to escape into a fantasy land of no people. And, his feeble and naive attempt killed him.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Schlimmer Lieferungsservice, 6. September 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
Das Buch soll spätestens am 04.09.2014 angekommen sein, ist aber noch nicht, während ich es auf einer Reise mitnehmen wollte. Ich musste ohne das Buch losmachen. Offensichtlicht schlimmer Lieferungsservice dieses Mal.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible, 16. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
This book was terrible and never should have gone beyond the confines of the originally written magazine article which spawned it. In a weak attempt to reach a semi-respectable length, the author includes quotes that are too lengthy and a rather dull account of his own adventures, which for all intents and purposes was a self-serving and forgettable intermission to the reading. This author also strikes me as the type to keep a thesaurus by his side so as to use ten million dollar words where ten dollar ones would suffice. Nothing wrong with great vocabulary, of course, but in a book that is otherwise on a 4th grade reading level, it isn't really warranted.
As for the book's protagonist, I thought he was a boring jerk. I felt terrible for the family he neglected for his own selfish reasons, as there was no apparent need for him to totally divorce himself from those that loved him. McCandless' wish to be one with nature and to "rough it" isn't a lifestyle that necessarily precluded calling home every once and a while, especially since he'd occasionally return to civilization to work. His adventure was more foolish and dangerous than brave (he perished only a few miles from civilization), and his journal accounts are scant and don't have much to say. The author was obviously very interested in Chris McCandless' story, and seems to have done his homework, but there just isn't much there for an interesting read. In fact, because there was so little by way of journal entries, the best the author can come up with instead is relating passages of books McCandless was reading that he underlined or highlighted (!). Sorry folks- this guy just wasn't as deep as everyone wants to believe he was.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poorly written, and not interesting, 28. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
This book is nothing but a sloppy, unorganized string of quotes, journal entries, and other meaningless crap. Chris McCandless's life is uninteresting, and his "wild adventure" to Alaska is nothing but a feeble suicide mission. He was ill-prepared, and I believe he suffered from a mental illness. He is not a "hero", or a "soul-seeker", but more of a dopey kid who decided to plunge into the wild with not much more than a ten lb bag of rice. What a moron....

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor little rich kid, 21. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
Krakauer's obvious self-analysis via the story of the life and death of a fellow 'tormented soul' is a pathetic attempt to glorify stupidity. Like Captain Ahab shaking his defiant fist at an overwhelmingly undefeatable Moby, Chris the so-called supertramp goes down to a meaningless and wasteful death. This book does nothing to salvage his life's squandered value. I wasted my money on this one hoping for another Into Thin Air.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book does not work, 17. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
This was the type of book that makes me want to wach paint dry. It drowns on about a self-absorbed CHILD. That he went into something with alomost no idea what he was doing. This was the type of person that would have got lost in a closet. The writing was like a bad news article from a tabloid. It glorified a sad ture story of someone that was vastly unpreppared for what they were doing.

(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
The book was a disappointment. It begins by leading you to believe that its a serious real adventure tale. However falls severly short of achieving that goal. He has tried to justify a waste of human life, which had no mission, no purpose in life. He has glorified the action of a completely confused person with a narrow perspective on life.
I as not able to fathom Jon Krakauer's purpose of writing this book. Not that there should be one, but as a reader I would like to take back something from the reading. Is he trying to portray Chris as a hero ? (which he can't) Was he trying to justify his actions of throwing away his life in a country like America, where there is abundance of everything ? I failed to understand the purpose.
I assume that Jon Krakauer, being a writer would have travelled to other parts of the worled, which are not so much endowed as the US. I am surprised that his worldview is so limited only to capture "American way of life" and generalising it.
A major disappointment, after reading "Into This Air".

4.0 von 5 Sternen Armer reicher Irrer, 6. Oktober 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into the Wild (Taschenbuch)
Das kommt raus, wenn man in der Wohlstandsgesellschaft lebt und zu blöd ist, sie zu genießen. Wem hilft es, einen auf arm und basic zu machen, wenn man es nicht gewohnt ist und gutmeinenden Menschen nicht richtig zuhört?
Das Buch beschreibt ganz gut die Motivation des Protagonisten und die dramatische Entwicklung seiner (Fehl-)Entscheidung.Mir hätte die Story und der Recherche-Hintergrund gereicht, die persönlichen Einlassungen habe ich dann immer überblättert.
Buch lesen - und liebe Kinder und alle, die mit einem ähnlich strukturierten Gemüt geschlagen sind: Bitte nicht nachmachen!
