One of the worst books I've ever read in my life. The author writes like a blogger that used a thesaurus to beef up the text. The story of Chris McCandless is infuriating. He threw away his life without giving a second thought to his family, and proceeded to freeze to death, thanks to his own stupidity. No matter how awful the story of McCandless was, it is made even worse by the author forcing in stories of his own adventures, that barely relate to the story at all. Overall a dry, boring, and taxing read.
