A very big part of why the author decided to write this novel is because of how he could relate to Chris McCandless with personal stories of his own. Knowing how chaotic the adventure that he took up looking for answers was, Krakauer wrote the book in a random unstructured order by jumping from different places and years because he felt it was as hard as the journey of Chris McCandless.

This short story contains an important theme that differs from “The Cask of Amontillado”. Human nature is a muted balance of light and dark or good and evil. Often this unstable balance is maintained; except, when there is a transition, for any reason, the dark or evil can consume the mind.

Society enforces rules and trends that people feel they must follow.
Every human has a somber attitude hidden inside oneself that is exposed only in certain situations. The novel Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, is an excellent example of the evils that escape one in dangerous matters as it occurs to it’s characters. With Goldings rigorous tale of a group of stranded young boys and their suffering on an uncharted island, he creates an intensely frightening mood for his readers, which allows his tone to be portrayed.

Two authors, each telling a different story, but with the same message. Although in different ways, William Golding and Khaled Hosseini both develop the theme that darkness can be found within everyone. Their use of characterization, symbolism, and motif suggest that darkness lives somewhere deep inside us all. The sole difference between each person is how well they keep that darkness contained. Both Golding and Hosseini use characterization to develop the theme, darkness can be found within everyone.
Walton’s loneliness was caused by his ambition, and by seeing the consequences of that path, he decides that risking his life is not worth the rewards. Robert’s loneliness takes the form of wanting a companion who understood him, and it originated from his aspirations of exploring a desolate
