Chris McCandless Reading List

Into The Wild gives a beautiful insight in to the life of Chris McCandless. I remember saying almost the same thing when I wrote a review of Into The Wild by Jon KrakauerI recently read a book recommended by a fellow blogger at the time when I wrote the book, which gives more insight into the life of Chris McCandless, The Wild Truth: The Untold Story of Sibling Survival by Carine McCandless. This book shows another view of Chris’ life.

Here are some great titles published during the decade:

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, 1990

Fifteen years after, I was amazed on finding that dinosaurs can exist on-screen. Five years down the line, I was again amazed to find that you could write a book that was a thriller and had science. 

American Psycho by Bret E. Ellis, 1991

One might say, my teenage days were ruined by reading these kind of books. Well I’d defend by saying they were essential part of my conscience both as a reader and as a human. This book made me familiar with lots of stuff that a boy at the age of sixteen could not even imagine.  Continue reading “BOOKS TO READ FROM 90s LIST”
