Christopher McCandless , son of wealthy parents name Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt, graduates from Emory University as a top student and athlete. Chris McCandless is smart from coming from a intelligent home but show is ignorance by leaving and doing what he want to do. Like when he started from El Segundo , CA and wanted to travel to Alaska without money and even his own social security card which was a wild bet for him to make. But for Shaun analysis about how Chris is arrogance and plain crazy i disagree. Because if he want to go struggle and see how it feels to go into the wild i say let him.
Darrel, or Darry has always wanted to become something amazing in life, but sadly when his parents died in a fatal car crash, he was left to raise his two younger brothers, Sodapop, and Ponyboy. More specifically, Darrel chooses his gang over his potential future to care for his friends but sadly, “. . . Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything.
Chris McCandless was a foolish person but he was wise in other aspects. McCandless was foolish by running away from everything that he loved. McCandless ran away from his college dorm without a trace. When his family came to check on McCandless they had no idea where their son disappeared to. His family especially his sister was hurt and worried for her brother.
“Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
I believe Shaun Callarman whom focuses on Chris McCandless is quite harsh in saying Chris had no common sense and saying that he does not admire him for his courage when Chris McCandless was a brave, wise and intelligent man. He knew exactly what he was getting into when he started his journey on going to Alaska. I think that he wanted to explore the wild and experience a different life other than the one he had. I disagree with Callarman saying McCandless was bright and arrogant at the same time. He had no business going to Alaska but that was his tactic for getting away from society.
It is scary to travel somewhere you have never been before, on your own, but I am seventeen years old and I love getting lost and adventuring new places just like Chris did. Although I don't know about going missing forever. Chris was the black sheep in his family and I believe he shouldn't be looked at that way for committing something he truly wanted at
Many thought that he was not going in the direction his life should have been aimed. Instead of seeking employment with his college degree, marrying, doing “normal things” at his age, he chose to donate the money that remained in his college fund to a charity called Oxfam, assumed the name of Alexander Supertramp, deserted his family and began a journey all over the country that would ultimately lead to his great Alaskan adventure. McCandless’ death led to much media attention, which in turn, led to strong opinions about
t all comes down to what you are willing to risk in order to be happy. Chris McCandless grew up in a wealthy family, but when he found out about his dad 's secret, he basically became disillusioned with life and rejected his privileged upbringing. He wanted to find a deeper meaning to life, which is why he went into the wild to live off of the land and be alone with his thoughts and nature just like his hero, Henry David Thoreau had. Even though this was extremely dangerous, to Chris it was worth it because he was willing to risk his life in order to live the way he wanted. I think many people can relate to this because they have dreams they are too afraid to pursue.
It was a sad moment, Mike had just lost his Grandpa Zachary on his father 's side of Family. Prior, to his death he had heard of the off all his wild, crazy adventures . His was Grandpa was very astute and could face through many challenges like the time he had hike with his younger brother even though he wasn 't good at it at all but, they had won by both working industriously and putting their brains together. His Grandpa had also told him that he was vulnerable at first but after time to time he had become a great man out there ready to face the dangers of the world.
Throughout the course of Jon Krakauer’s Into The Wild the reader can see that time and time again Chris McCandless is unprepared for what lies ahead of him, which is why he is not a noble man, nor should his journey be considered noble. While it is true that McCandless had gone on adventures before, nothing had prepared him for the bitter cold climate and the lack of food he had in Alaska. McCandless was not prepared physically or mentally and he did not bring anywhere near enough supplies for someone planning to spend the summer in the harsh environment of Alaska. While it wasn’t foolish for Chris to go out and try to find happiness for himself, it was foolish of him to have been unprepared to begin a difficult adventure in Alaska. Chris McCandless

His life wasn't perfect as no ones is and he like everyone of us struggled with different situations. The main reasons that could have inspired him were literary influences and problems within his family. McCandless actions were influenced by things he read.
