Now, I am a very comfortable in saying that this book, and movie, brought some emotion out of me. I'm not sure about any others, but there are certain parts, which I will not spoil for any of you who have not read the book, that make me tear a bit. If you don't believe me, just go read the book. Don't watch the movie because the book is better. Yes people, it takes longer to read a book, but you get so much more out of it!
I recently bought my favorite musical artist's, Ryan Adams, books, which I will probably blog about sometime down the road. I found it hilarious and so true that his dedication for one of the books, named "Infinity Blues," is as follows:
"For Bug and for people who still read these things."
If you haven't caught on yet, this is me suggesting that you read this book, if you have the extra 30 minutes a night to sacrifice to an amazing book. A brief overview of the book and Chris McCandless' story is actually printed on the cover, which I have provided above. But, if you are too lazy, cannot read, or just don't have the time, I guess I'll let it slide if you watch the movie!
