In “To Build a Fire” our main character is described as “He was a newcomer in the land, and this was his first winter.The trouble with him was that he was not able to imagine. He was quick and ready in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in their meanings.” (London 65) He was a man that had too much faith in his abilities and didn’t listen to others advice. On the other hand our main character in “The Law of Life” he is described by himself as “It is well. I am as a last year 's leaf, clinging lightly to the stem. The first breath that blows, and I fall.
He also took the brass cornet with him. Edward went away to “go home” but no one was aware of Edwards where abouts. The letters show that the superintendent of the school was in deep demand to find Edward because he has the brass cornet. Edward is nowhere to be found but the superintendent is only concerned about getting the brass cornet back, because he probably think the cornet is worth more than Edward himself.

Throughout the novel “Into the Wild” the character Mccandless had planned to leave off on his own to explore the forest of Alaska. Mccandless was the son of a wealthy parents, he left them with the intention to show or prove something to himself and his family, after he left without telling them. He had donated all his money he had earned and gave it all to charity and practically gave up all his possessions.

He was later found dead inside of a school bus that had been sitting in the wild for years.
In "To Build a Fire" the protagonist makes bad decisions because he is far from civilization, and he wants to reach it. For example, before he stops to build the first fire, he realizes that it is colder than he has ever experienced before, but he does not do anything because he is only thinking about the fact that “at six o’clock he would be in camp with the boys.” This shows that the protagonist is not thinking about his well being, he is just thinking about reaching his friends. Another example is when he builds the second fire under the spruce tree then snow fell from the tree, and “the fire was blotted out." This example shows that the protagonist is not thinking straight because he built his fire in a bad place because he was focusing on getting to civilization, not surviving. In "An Episode of War", the protagonist is treated differently because of his injury.

Even though Christopher McCandless was only an adventurous young man trying to chase his dreams, that still does not account for all the careless mistakes he made in the process. His incompetence did not allow him to last even a mere six months in the destination in which he had desired to live in. His inability to take one’s advice left him with no clue as to what to do next. It was like he was living in the dark. Also, his unpreparedness reached its magnitude when he died of starvation in 1992.
Entry One On page twelve of Holes, Stanley gets to the camp and meets Mr. Sir for the first time. Because the camp was so far away, both the bus driver and guard felt understandably irritated. In fact, the guard stated, “Nine hours here, and now nine hours back… What a day.” Stanley “felt a little sorry for the guard and the bus driver” for putting them through the trouble. This reminds me of how in the book Wringer, Palmer feels guilty about a mistake he made. When he is hiding his pet pigeon, Nipper, from the world who wants to kill him, he accidentally left one of Nipper’s toys in his room for the critics to see.
