He had fled the claustrophobic confines of his family. He’d successfully kept Jan Burres and Wayne Westerberg at arm’s length, flitting out of their lives before anything was expected of him. And now he’d slipped painlessly out of Ron Franz’s life as well,” every time someone tried to become close to him, he pushed him or her away. When Ronald Franz asked to adopt him, Chris told him that they would talk about it when he returns from Alaska. Chris’ problems with his father affected his ability to form new, close relationships, and ultimately sent him to his death.
He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.

Instead of telling him the truth, his parents decide to keep it a secret. This decision influenced Paul by making him overreact to questions about his sight, making him hate himself, and making others think he’s ignorant. At the beginning of the book, Paul moves to a county called Lake Windsor Downs and he starts attending
This makes his story more heartbreaking in my opinion. Because he was carrying numerous forms of ID on him, he unmistakably wasn’t planning on deserting society forever; he wanted to return hopefully someday. Perhaps he would have written a book about his whereabouts or what he grasped about the significance of life while absorbed in the wild. Maybe he would have justified why he never contacted his parents. Although Chris inspired many people from his Alaskan expedition, he could have inspired so many more if he had survived.
Despite knowing the risks of this stunt, he continued with it anyway. Similar to McCandless, Knievel was being reckless, which had affected others around him. McCandless had left his family to travel to Alaska and live in the wild in search of enlightenment. After his death, word about his journey spread around the country. Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care.
My uncles talked about their experiences on becoming a man and how they were left outside the city and had to make it back home. My grandfather even asked me if I wanted to be left in the middle of nowhere so I can return a man. I remember thinking there was no way I was going do that. My mom told me so many stories of witches and animals lurking just waiting for me to slip up when I was little that I didn’t even want to risk it. So I thought I would do my manhood journey in a different way.
Into The Wild was a tremendous story which Shaun Callarman did not have many positive things to say about Chris McCandless, the main character. He went on this adventure to find out what life is all about in his own eyes. He wanted to see how different living in the wild really was compared to society because he was not satisfied with his living arrangements and household. Shaun’s quote says that he thinks “Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.
People don’t seem to understand when you need to be free and do what you want to do. So just like running away or staying where you 're living there will always will be consequences and advantages too. For Chris I say he made the smart choice by running away and be free in what he wants to do. But he knew it wasn’t going to be easy to heading to Alaska because some of the advantages were leaving society and be alone and travel his own transportation there which was walking and asking for a few rides. Then some consequences that occur was McCandless killing a moose.

Tomorrow would be the last he would wait, counting down from since a few months ago Brooks had been tired with his life in Cold Bay. He had never liked his “neighbors”, which lived all the way across the airport from him. Acting just as cold as the weather, they shied away from him just because of his parents’ disrespect to the community. By the time he stopped pondering, the water was all gone, whisked away into the atmosphere, never to be seen again by his eyes. He took the pot around poured what little was left.
