I love this book so much ! The story haunted me deeply for a long time, it's one of the most unusual and powerful books I have ever read.
Born Chris McCandless, he changed his name to Alexander Supertramp, a young man who left his family and friends, donated his college money , abandoned most of his material possessions, went to the Alaska wilderness and died there. Chris craved Freedom, a desire to escape, He lived a life he wanted to live, in his own way.
this is not just the story of Chris but the story of many people and families that He touched and inspired in his odyssey and despite the fact that his journey cost him his life, but he was more alive and experienced than most people do in a entire lifetime. He was Brave, He was Unique.
Jon Krakauer did a great job telling the story of McCandless through a lot of research based on letters, journal entries and interviews with people who knew Chris.
i highly recommend this book ♥
