I'm really torn on my opinion of Into the Wild. The first time I tried to read it i abandoned the book about mid way through, the second time I read it in 2 or 3 days. All in all I felt like the story was told in a pretty compelling manner but I never really connected with the story. Maybe its because I don't have much of a sense of adventure, maybe its because I really don't like camping, etc.. and can't fathom why you would want to go it alone in the middle of nowhere.

McCandless himself was a bit of a paradox to me...
