it was ok
bookshelves: nonfiction

I listened to this on tape. It seemed really short, suitably I suppose. Made me think about a certain style of obstinence that I will never posess, and the part at which the parents leave a trunk of emergency supplies and a note saying to call home in the bus was the only part at which I truly mourned for McCandless. Or perhaps more so felt sympathetic to his death, and the pain of his family.
I still felt like this was 1/2 of a story, mainly pointing towards the larger ideas of wilderness, survival, sanity and internal struggles much like Thoureau, Grizzly Man, Alaska itself, etc. etc.
