Another Book

I bought this book yesterday, it seems interesting…

Into The Wild is a biographical novel about Chris McCandless, a 23yo guy who starts an idealistic journey throughout the forests and deserts of the States and Mexico trying to live accordingly to his Tolstoian beliefs, which denounce all kind of material possessions.

The adventure ends up in tragedy when his body is found in Alaska two years after his departure.

That’s all I know so far, however, it seems that this story aroused a public debate years ago… Not sure why people got so passionate about this tragedy, but I’m about to find out.

More to come….
