Finished Another Book!

Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer - It's easy to understand why Krakauer undertook this endeavor, as he clearly sees some of himself in the subject of the story. The book meanders a bit, probably because too many facts aren't available and the saga itself is a bit thin, but it's compensated by the clear passion of the writer. As for McCandless himself, I state unequivocally that he was an unprepared arrogant idiot. He was a socially, philosophically, conservationally talented and intelligent man. His death was a complete waste of an extremely promising existence. A great shame.
