Fitzgerald shows this through the lives of three of the leading characters: Daisy, Jordan, Myrtle; and through the women that attended Gatsby’s parties. However, Fitzgerald also shows how they still depend on men, no matter how emancipated they seem to be. Therefore, the question whether or not women were truly dependent on men, is raised.

In the beginning, Conrad is hesitant to call Dr. Berger and when he finally does, he does not want to leave the doctor his number. This is a way of avoiding his problems.

It is true that Krakauer mentions his own viewpoint of McCandless, but people can still have different opinions on him. For example, in chapter eight people have made up their opinions on McCandless base on reading the Outside article. They said he was “forsaken a loving family,” unprepared, not wise on going to Alaska, and was preparing to die (Krakauer 74). However, that point is not true because it was based on what they read from the article. By reading the article they only know the exterior of him and not know the reason why he went to Alaska.
But his parents were still living in a more traditional world and did not understand that the world is changing. As a result, he was mostly confused and was constantly pulled in two directions. A side towards the understanding of his father theory of manhood and on the other hand the need to seek his true identity in a world that his parents would never understand.

In the book, “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer, Chris McCandless, who introduces himself as Alex, hitchhiked his way to Alaska. He embarked on an adventure to Alaska to get away from not only his family, but humanity in general to figure out how to escape from the life he did not enjoy.

With regard to that, he left his family behind without a notice of what his plans were going to be after he graduated.
