So in reality, he had no chance to be given a good social life from the start and craved for it. Even when attempting to join the De Lacey family, he was kicked out of their house. In the story it says, “My protectors had departed, and had broken the only link that held me to the world” (251). He has been constantly rejected by people and is forced to live in isolation. He even mentioned that the only way he had a connection to the
Denali, which few people have been able to conquer, with little supplies. He had previously accomplished the task but he was attempting it again from a further point. His lack of supplies and attempt at facing something so difficult is very similar to Chris McCandless’s journey into the wild. John faced the difficult task, started the journey, and “he was not seen again; it is assumed he broke through a thin snow bridge and plummeted to his death...” 80. Although he wasn’t the brightest of them all, his death was simply an accident, like McCandless.

And that's the extent of his memories. It all just skids to a halt like running into a glass wall. He tries all the time to remember who he used to be but it doesn't ever work and sometimes he's just too tired to even try to be anyone at all because he doesn't even know if he wants to be that person anymore. The street kid that he used to be, puny five-foot two creature wouldn't survive, but he's still there sometimes, the impulse to act and the recognition that hey, this is that person I used to be, and Jubel guards that part of him as his best-kept secret. Because that
Brian is a dynamic character because he changed throughout the story. Brian was stranded in the middle of nowhere and he changed. He had lost weight, and had longer thinner hair, and he had become more courageous throughout the story . This is because he was stranded in the middle of nowhere for so long he had hardly anything to eat, and he had nobody there with him he had to learn how to survive on his own. I think good things had come from him being in the middle of nowhere for so long had done some good.
All he could do was hear and feel as Mengele took compared his body measurements to his brother’s. He didn’t trust himself to get up to walk, in fear that he would fall into something much worse. So all he did was lay there, even when they brought food. It went on like this for a while, it had probably been days but there was no way to tell for sure. After a few days, he thought he was able to make out light and dark images.
At first, as he lay there with life slowly escaping his body he does not realize he is dying. After all it is only a cut, just another cut from another scrap with the Royals’ opposing gang, the guardians. In the first few minutes, dying didn’t cross his mind. However, as time progressed and he received no help he

In the beginning of the novel, Nick says “Gatsby ended up alright.” Gatsby was only “alright” because he did not achieve his goal, to become the people who attended his parties. To have been able to be with Daisy would have fulfilled his goals that he had pursued all along, but, unfortunately, he was unable to be with her. Even though he had the wealth that Tom, Daisy’s husband, did, he was still the poor man he was at the age of 17 years old, Jay Gatz. Likewise, this proves that money cannot buy everything you want in the world. Jay Gatsby wanted to fit in with his wealthy neighbors and also made Daisy fall in love with him.
McCandless also wasn’t motivated by such distinications and lacked, seemingly, a true purpose in his life. A few pages later, Krakauer explains his departure in more detail: “He had spent the previous four years .. preparing to fulfill an absurd and onerous duty: to graduate from college. At long last he was … emancipated from the stifling … world in which he felt grievously cut off from the raw throb of existence” (18). Krakauer explicitly makes it clear here that McCandless saw no purpose in his old life and that everything was old of simple “duty”. It didn’t motivate him, and he was finally free from that
The loss of his father was the major life event that has impacted negatively his life. H.G never received treatment for his ADHD and possible learning disability. As a result of his life stressors he was not able to continue a healthy development. One can say that Maslow’s pyramid is from its very base lacking all the foundations in the case of H.G. “His physiological needs were met at a very basic level; the same could be said about his sense of safety and belonging as well as his esteem needs.” (Mandich, 2015, p. 42).
