While I was initially skeptical of how interesting I would find Jon Krakauer’s non-fiction book, Into the Wild, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. His book follows the true story of a young man, Christopher McCandless who ventured into the wild. It is easy to criticize that McCandless’s lack of preparation for his adventure, the author portrays him in a way that is likable and easy to identify with. I really appreciated that Krakauer brought in additional examples to the story to compare and contrast to McCandless’s adventure. I think it added a lot of insight into the story and his reasoning behind his journey. Emily, grade 12, of the Yorba Linda Teen Book Bloggers
