Re: Reasons behind Chris's name change

I think the reason why he changed his name was because he didn't want anybody where he came from. In the book it said how he was just embarrassed of how his family lived, and he didn't want to be judged because of how wealthy they were. I believe that he chose Alexander to be his name because of Ale...

Re: Reasons behind Chris's name change

I believe that he chose Alexander to be his name because of Alexander the Great. He was someone that liked being independent and wanted help from no one. That sounds a lot like Chris. Theres a lot of opinions to why he chose Supertramp. I just think because he liked thinking of himself as a superher...

Re: some questions

The first question I'm not entirely sure, but i think maybe because he didn't have a map, so therefore, he didn't know? :?: Now about the other question, he was known to be stubborn and just did whatever he wanted to do, so maybe he just did not want any help from others. He wanted to see if he coul...

Re: Chris's life after the wild

In my perspective, i think he would go back to his family and apologize for all that he has done. I think living in the wild would make him clear his mind and notice that family is important. Yeah, he would still go on with his escapes, but i think he would be more careful now, if he was close to de...

Re: Would you do what Chris did?

For me, i wouldn't do what Chris did with going to Alaska and risking his life to stay in the wilderness, but with the other things that he did, i would love to do it. For example, Chris giving all his money to OXFAM, or caring for the poor, and actually doing something to help them. The one thing t...

Re: Death makes him relevant.

I agree and disagree with this comment. the reason i agree is because many people might not believe all of what the author has to say of what they did. They would probably think, they're saying this to make them look good. Maybe thats why people wouldn't pay it much attention, but its different if s...

Re: Do you think Chris McCandless had a destination after bu

i think McCandless didn't want to stay on the bus forever and died. i believe he had other destinations after that. The reason why i think this is because the post card that he sent to Wayne, sounds like he was going to come back. He wasn't sure if he would survive the trip, but i felt like he did w...

Re: What do you think about Chris going into the wild?

i think Chris was just really excited about having and Alaskan Odyssey, that he really wasn't thinking about all the dangerous things he could face. I felt like he thought it was a vacation and a getaway from all society. I believe that Chris was a little cocky though. Since he already survived goin...
