This book was captivating! You are totally drawn into this family, its history and how it relates to the present time. It's an interesting read into schizophrenia and how it affects a whole family. I definitely recommend it!

I just finished this book and it was incredible! It was almost overwhelming in the way that it makes you feel so many different things towards Chris McCandless; admiration and frustration among them. Basically, it is an interesting account of a young man who abandons his civilized life and wanders into the Alaskan wilderness. The author also does a great job at tying this story in to others who have have done something similar throughout history. Highly recommended!

I couldn't get through this book at all. I found it so dense and the author just beat every point to death so that it could not hold my attention at all. I gave the audio book a try because of all the hype about this book changing your life, but I almost fell asleep in the car! Usually, I am very open to this type of read and to new age thinking, but I was sorry that I could not get into this one.
