What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life? Noted outdoor writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer tackles that question in his reporting on Chris McCandless, whose emaciated body was found in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992.

Described by friends and relatives as smart, literate, compassionate and funny, did McCandless simply read too much Thoreau and Jack London and lose sight of the dangers of heading into the wilderness alone? Krakauer, whose own adventures have taken him to the perilous heights of Everest, provides some answers by exploring the pull the outdoors, seductive yet often dangerous, has had on his own life. --Amazon.com -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

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. Krakauer follows the young man's trail and tries to give us his understanding of what made this man tick to do what he did. He succeeds quite admirably. The book is well written and in the end you get an understanding of Christopher Candless. The author can see quite a bit of himself in him which leads to his sympathetic protrayal, something not shared by everybody. Many felt he was just stupid and arrogant and tried to survive in the wilderness without adequate preparation. Krakauer makes the point that this was not so, that just a couple of things did not turn the way they could have. In the wilderness there are no second chances and what was just a little mistake led to the young man's death. Growing up in our modern societies we sometimes forget how perilous people used to live when they depended completely on nature. Krakauer makes us think about many of these aspects and in general about our relationship to nature. All in all, this is a very recommendable book and though it may sound a bit gloomy, it actually isn't. Very good indeed.

There is little suspense (in the traditional sense of the word) in Krakauer's Into the Wild, as anyone who reads the synopsis or picks up the book instantly learns that it is the story of a young man, Chris McCandless, who ventures into the Alaskan Wilderness and who never gets out. Chris' body is found in an abandoned bus used by moose hunters as a makeshift lodge, and Krakauer skillfully attempts to retrace his steps in an effort both to understand what went wrong, and to figure out what made McCandless give away his money, his car, and head off into Denali National Forest in the first place.
His book was one of the most haunting, unforgettable reads in recent years for me. I was mezmerized by passages in the author's other best-selling masterpiece Into Thin Air, such as the passage involving stranded and doomed guide Rob Hall, near the Everest summit, talking to his pregnant wife via satellite phone to discuss names for their unborn child. However, I was unprepared for the depths of emotion felt in reading Into the Wild - it literally kept me up at nights, not just reading but thinking about the book in the dark.
Some reviewers criticized the book because they thought McCandless demonstrated a naive and unhealthy lack of respect for the Alaskan wilderness. This is no hike on the Appalachian Trail - Chris was literally dropped off by a trucker into the middle of nowhere, with no provision stores, guides, or means of assistance nearby at his disposal. He had a big bag of rice and a book about native plants, designed to tell him which plants and berries he could eat. "How could he have been so stupid?", they ask.

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 gives it all up for a life of wandering and freedom. While this may be the plotline for thousands of other books, INTO THE WILD was pleasantly (or disturbingly) twisted by Jon Krakauer into a complicated dance of really living, and death. Chris McCandles dies, we find that out in the first chapter. After we find out about his death though, the reader gets a chance to meet the people who played a role in McCandless' search for self. Starting out with Jim Gallien, "Gallien wondered whether he'd picked up one of those crackppots for the lower forty-eight who come north to live . . ." As readers, we meet a chain of colorful charectors who help him along the way. The problem with this plot line is that the charectors are not always introduced in a logical way. They also do not necessarily make sense when they are introduced into the story line. Start a new chapter, such as chapter nine, and an entirely new plot is started. We have a new charector named Everett Russ. He wants to climb around a place called Davis Gulch. The language is beautiful in this section "Tall grasses sway in the breeze. The ephemeral bloom of a sego lily peeks from the toe of a ninety-foot stone arch, and the canyon wrens call back and forth in plaintive tones ..... . . .", the language is beautiful in the rest of the book. This is a very important fact.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

This is a poignant, compelling narrative of an intelligent, intense, and idealistic young man, Chris McCandless, who cut off all ties to his upper, middle class family, and reinvented himself as Alexander Supertramp, a drifter living out of a backpack, eking out a marginal existence as he wandered throughout the United States. A modern day King of the Road, McCandless ended his journey in 1992 in Alaska, when he walked alone into the wilderness north of Denali. He never returned.
Krakauer investigates this young man's short life in an attempt to explain why someone who has everything going for him would have chosen this lifestyle, only to end up dead in one of the most remote, rugged areas of the Alaskan wilderness. Whether one views McCandless as a fool or as a modern day Thoreau is a question ripe for discussion. It is clear, however, from Krakauer's writing that his investigation led him to feel a strong, spiritual kinship with McCandless. It is this kindred spirit approach to his understanding of this young man that makes Krakauer's writing so absorbing and moving.
Krakauer retraces McCandless' journey, interviewing many of those with whom he came into contact. What develops is a haunting, riveting account of McCandless' travels and travails, and the impact he had on those with whom he came into contact. Krakauer followed McCandless' last steps into the Alaskan wilderness, so that he could see for himself how McCandless had lived, and how he had died. This book is his epitaph.
