Ok, so i read this years ago and loved it. Just reread it because i have to read it with my juniors (yay springboard...not!) Sooo different this time around.
chris mccandless bugged me so much. Seriously, why the angst and white people problems? I am anxious to see how my students take it. I mean some of them are homeless so the idea of connecting with a kid who gave away his college money, abandoned his family and went to alaska in February is absurd. Happiness isnt that complicated. Totally inappropriate for readers who do not understand the quest for self realization.
