`Terrifying. . . . Eloquent. . . . A heart-rending drama of human yearning.` --`The New York Times` `A narrative of arresting force. Anyone who ever fancied wandering off to face nature on its own harsh terms should give a look. It's gripping stuff.` --`The Washington Post` `Haunting . . . few outdoors writers of the day can match Krakauer for bringing outside adventure to life on the page.` --`Portland Oregonian` `Engrossing . . . with a telling eye for detail, Krakauer has captured the sad saga of a stubborn, idealistic young man.` --`Los Angeles Times Book Review` `It may be nonfiction but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order.` --`Entertainment Weekly` `Sensational. . . . [Krakauer] is such a good reporter that we come as close as we probably ever can to another person's heart and soul.` --`Men's Journal`
