The conclusion of craziness that Callarman suggests does not withstand the concrete evidence from scientific studies and analyzation of journal entries and testimonial accounts of Chris McCandless’s end stages of life. Although Shaun Callarman is correct that Chris made many mistakes based on ignorance and not enough education, that does not make guarantee craziness. The young man, Chris McCandless, was able to not only prepare for and record the journey of a lifetime but was also able to succeed in fulfilling the childhood dream of enduring the Alaskan
This makes his story more heartbreaking in my opinion. Because he was carrying numerous forms of ID on him, he unmistakably wasn’t planning on deserting society forever; he wanted to return hopefully someday. Perhaps he would have written a book about his whereabouts or what he grasped about the significance of life while absorbed in the wild. Maybe he would have justified why he never contacted his parents. Although Chris inspired many people from his Alaskan expedition, he could have inspired so many more if he had survived.
Shaun Callarman says that Chris was ignorant and had no common sense, but I think he knew what he was doing the whole time and made his own decision. Into the wild was and fascinating story and it will keep you centered and into it the entire time. Chris McCandless was splendid and insensible and the same time however, he comprehended what he was doing the entire time. He needed to go into the wild and carry on with a free life, he comprehended what he was getting himself into and realized that he would have restricted nourishment. The times he was insensible was the point at which he didn 't have any nourishment and saw an impregnated creature and he was sufficiently benevolent not to kill it but rather he was starving.
Into the Wild, written by Jon Kraukauer and lived by Chris McCandless, is a novel in the eyes of a young man who ventures out to find a happiness of his own. Chris McCandless left his home life in hopes of finding true happiness. There is a fine line between venturing out on a split second decision and leaving your normal life to enlighten yourself. He never thought through what could happen to him while on his own in places he had not gone before. There’s a difference between being ignorant and being intelligent, Chris was staying put on that line.

In the book, after Eddie’s wife, Marguerite, died, he felt lonely (when he met her in heaven, Eddie talked about her leaving too soon and how life has to end but love doesn’t). Eddie thought he was lonely, and that he should have moved away and chased his dream of doing something else. In the eyes of other people, Eddie did great things, like made sure kids had a good time and that all the rides were safe. So even though Eddie thought he was alone, he really wasn’t, as his coworkers and the kids at the park were always happy to see him. This sentence is meaningful to me and people in real life because people everywhere are sad and they think they’re alone, when in reality they aren’t.
Dying in place of Darnay has finally given Carton some meaning to his life. Carton thinks to himself about “the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy” (Dickens 381). Happiness has finally came to Carton. Even though he wasn 't happy in life, he will be happy in death. There were many bad forces in the novel but good overcame it all.
I think he just wanted to pursue life in a different way. Chris was not seeing life the way anyone else was, so he decided to brush off into the wild and be free on his own. Though he did not survive, he was still a very bright, arrogant human being. Shaun Callarman states, “He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.” Chris knew going into the wild that he did not have much survival skills, but that did not stop him from doing what he wanted to do because he did not care about society and was just completely over everything which was why he made the move to the wilderness. This clearly shows us that Chris did not have much common sense.
Despite knowing the risks of this stunt, he continued with it anyway. Similar to McCandless, Knievel was being reckless, which had affected others around him. McCandless had left his family to travel to Alaska and live in the wild in search of enlightenment. After his death, word about his journey spread around the country. Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care.
The last thing Chris wrote was, “I have had a happy life and thank the Lord. Goodbye and May God bless all!” (Krakauer 199). Showing that Chris may have suffered on his journey, he would not take it back, he was glad he took the risk. With the statement on how he had grown in his journey and was happy to do
Men work majority of their lives saving so when they retire then they can enjoy life, but will they be in good health to do that. They can only hope so. Thoreau explains why he left the woods, “I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there. Perhaps it seemed to me that I had several more lives, and could not spare any more time for that one” (Thoreau 1149). He continues on with saying what he learned from his experience out in the woods, “I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours” (Thoreau 1149).
