Into the WildInto the Wild by Jon Krakauer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, this was not what I expected, but I still found it interesting. It often reads much more like a report or journal article, when I wanted something a bit more fiction-like. It also wanders a lot into other realms, and the story isn’t told in chronological order, probably as what people are most interested in is how it all came to and end, which means it skips around a lot. I don’t mind that, but in a way it reads more like a conversation, where you start on a topic, get sidetracked, wander off into another related realm, and then later pull yourself back towards the story and point.

This is a 3.75 for me, so I obviously rounded up. My favorite part was psychoanalyzing Chris and considering the many different viewpoints and opinions about him. I found that my ideas about him shifted and changed as the story progressed, so that kept me interested.
