Into The Wild was a tremendous story which Shaun Callarman did not have many positive things to say about Chris McCandless, the main character. He went on this adventure to find out what life is all about in his own eyes. He wanted to see how different living in the wild really was compared to society because he was not satisfied with his living arrangements and household.

In the article “Reeling in the Demon: An Exploration into the Category of the Demonized Other as Portrayed in ‘The Journey to the West’”, a deeper understanding of the inner demon found in the characters of the ancient Chinese novel is discovered. The article is written by Laurie Cozad and is part of the Oxford Journals in Oxford University Press. Cozad makes the point of “one begins to unravel the conundrum of why demons, at once so dangerous and impure, are so often required by the pure,” (Cozad, 117). An issue Journey to the West makes quite evident would be the inner demons that these characters face, causing them to act in a way that is out of their nature.
