When Jody left him, he found that he had nothing to work for anymore. Even though, Johnathan was a drinker, he drank because he was under so much pressure to work to impress his wife and give his family what they needed. Nick should have taken it upon himself to accept his father into his home and not just watch him deteriorate slowly. Nick had several chances to engage in conversation with his father but never did. It is not Jonathan’s fault for where he and Nick stand, because in his point of view he probably is under the impression that Nick does not like him anymore.
but as soon as he overheard that his parents were going to get a divorce it upset him greatly and it affected him emotionally in a negative way. “In moments of anger, one or the other often threatened divorce...

This is proven when he has a thought that he will lose his dad and when his dad dies. This created a negative impact towards Wiesel’s identity. First, Wiesel says, “And in spite of myself, a prayer formed inside me, a prayer to this god in whom I no longer believed” (Wiesel, 91).

Like Chris, Krakauer went through harsh and difficult situations and did not feel as confident during his adventure as he did before it. One of the reasons Krakauer adds his experience to the story is to do away with the thought that Chris McCandless was suicidal. Krakauer did not believe that Chris was because he was so similar to Chris when he took his journey, “…had i not returned from the Stikine Ice Cap in 1977, people would have been quick to say of me - as they now say of him - that i had a death wish. Eighteen years after the event, I now recognize that i suffered from hubris, perhaps, and an appalling innocence, certainly; but i wasn't suicidal.” (Page 155, paragraph 5) Krakauer shares this because he wants people to look at Chris as more than a kid who had a death wish.

He joined in, and the shame was so unbearable that it caused him to commit suicide. This novel is an allegory to how society does anything and everything to snuff out individuality. The way that people who had once been people of integrity and respect were pushed to debase and degrade themselves in order to fit society’s standards, much like today’s society is doing

Dally was rebellious when Johnny died, because Johnny was the only person that he truly loved. In fact, he was so broken that he died on purpose just to get rid of his life.

I wanted to tell you, I just didn’t know how. He, your brother, didn’t know he had a sister until your father thought it was the right time to tell him.” Mama continues: “When you were both young, your father made me choose between you two. It was one of the hardest decisions I ever made.” Mama starts crying; I’ve never seen her this vulnerable.
Before his father died he was trying to help but supporting him kept getting more difficult as time passed until he became incapable of helping. This can be seen in quotes right after his father died when he says, “I could see that he was breathing--in gasps. I didn’t move.” He knew his father was dying and did not help.
