Krakauer and Chris both disliked their fathers, to which Krakauer writes about himself, “I disappointed my father in the usual ways. Like McCandless, figures of male authority aroused in me a confusing medley of corked fury and hunger to please” (134). Writing an article just wasn’t enough.

Chris McCandless went into the adventure, not knowing what to do.

He thought success comes in the form of luck rather than hard work. He admits “that man was a genius” (Miller 22). He idolized him but also hated him for his lifestyle at the same time. He was jealous. He believed he should be living the same life but instead he lived the horrid realities of his life.Willy made a lot of mistakes in his life which set the tone to all of the relationships he encountered throughout his life.
He hates him and despises him. The reason he does this is because his father (Mr Earnshaw) treats Heathcliff very well, if so better than he does Hindley.

This was extremely selfish of McCandless, although he did “reach out and grab” what he wanted in life, he handled it in the worst possible way, by not telling anyone which left his family in grief. In Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, Krakauer’s negative tone towards McCandless reveals his selfish nature, while Penn’s incorporation of McCandless’s friendship in the film reveals a McCandless that’s neutral due to his combination of selfishness and selflessness.
