On the whole I enjoyed this. I understand the author's digressions on how he related to McCandless but I found it completely unnecessary, along with the tellings of other people like McCandless. It seems the author was trying too hard to make people think McCandless wasn't some idiot, to justify his actions. Despite the fact that I don't think he was an idiot, either, I again don't think such biased beliefs belong in something considered a biography. Let us deduce it on our own, please.
