Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

This is a depressing story about a young guy named Christopher McCandless who abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Definitely not the average college student. Just didn't want the typical life. I can relate to that. So he travels for like 2 years and ends up dead in Alaska. He wasn't suicidal or anything just not as prepared enough. You need more than rice and a .22 rifle to survive. It's a movie too but i fell asleep. I think we started it to late. A good sobering read and I'll read it again this winter when the weather is cold,wet and depressing
