INTO THE WILD
I read this book years ago and had a hard time getting through it. But I kept going because I felt a need to read the details of how it happened. In the end, I was glad I did.
Recently, I saw the movie at the video store. I was immediately drawn to it. For a book that didn't read so well, very slow paced, it somehow managed to have stick with me. I debated whether or not to rent it. In the end, my curiosity won out. I couldn't imagine how they could fit the book into a two hour movie.
I was glad I watched it. The movie gave the book a whole new meaning. This was a very sad story, yet one that needed to be told. One that will stick with you forever.
