Also, too, I had an unsettling vision of Mr. I gave the El Tour riders two hours to get past our area and then headed out.
I will probably read it again with my daughter when she is old enough to discuss it. Unfortunately, I'm afraid the reason most people will read the book and see the new upcoming movie, is for a different reason.
Chris McCandless in the book, and from what I understand in the movieis a hero and courageous for flying in the face of everything he grew up with to find a better way.
A young man unhappy with the materialism, hunger, and waste in the world; This book is a wonderful cautionary tale. A young man unhappy with the materialism, hunger, and waste in the world; angry with his father for not being a perfect father to him; intellectually superior, a fantastic athlete in top condition He cut off ties to his family, hitchhiked and worked his way to Alaska, headed "into the wild" in Apriland was found dead in August most probably from starvation.
How wonderful to "fight against the odds" and "ask real questions". Unfortunately, Chris didn't really fight against any odds, he took the easy way out by cutting off real relationships.
Chris may have asked real questions, but he denied real people the opportunity to answer them in any way, because he had already decided what was "the right way".
This is not heroic. It is tragic and sad, yes, but not heroic or courageous. After reading the book, I think Chris died because he was foolish.
But he had no wisdom. Wisdom has been defined as "skill in living", and wisdom is not always bestowed on the young and the healthy and the intellectually smart.
The opposite of wisdom is foolishness. His anger and questioning drove him not to wisdom, but to self-reliance and an overweening arrogance in his own ability to "get through it".
Well, we see the result of those decisions and those attitudes Chris was not "fit", therefore he did not "survive". But why wasn't he fit?
He was smart and young and gifted in many ways, but he chose to abandon relationships and abandon those who loved him and create himself anew with no relationships and no ties. He walked away from people who loved him, made friends with people who came to love him, and walked away from all of that to find his answers "in the wild" on his own.
The way away from love and relationship leads not to life, but indeed to death. And death is what Chris got. The book quotes Chris' mother as saying, "I haven't prayed since we lost him. I asked God to keep his finger on the shoulder of that one; I told him that boy was special.Feb 18, · ~ Vote for your Favorite Family Movie, Christmas Movie, and More!
