I have not read the book but I am thinking about it.
It was a really well done movie.
But I either wanted to hug Chris McCandless, or smack him. As a parent, I mainly wanted to smack him.
so after mulling it a few days, I have decided he is an idiot, a tragic idiot.
he gave up his maps. Couldn't cross the river, and depended on a book for portland on plants in Alaska. Died 20 miles from the state highway.
And my husband asked a simple question, if he couldn't cross the river, why didn't he just follow the river back?
The final scenes of him dying were extraordinary. It must of been so frightening and lonely, I feel so bad for him. but...
Am I being too harsh?
