yes! i wanted more and more quotes from him!
I found humor in some of it, but I agree that it was hard to finish. I think some chapters held my interest more than others. Some chapters seemed like they went on and on.
i did love that line too! it's such an interesting story, that i could not fathom ever doing myself. To have that much silence for that long, i feel like would be overwhelming. I could see it being beautiful, peaceful, and enjoyable for a small while, but for that long, I feel like I would go crazy. I would be interested to hear more from Chris. I enjoyed the other historical information and psych behind it. I think it really added to the story and showed the "why" behind his choices.
I was also wondering why he didn't try to live off the land more. he could have killed animals and gotten more plants for sure. I kept feeling so sorry for his mother, and for his father to have passed away not knowing is so sad.
i really enjoyed reading this book, but i felt the same way, especially towards the end of the book. Chris repeatedly said he wanted to be left alone, and asked to not be bothered, yet the author kept trying to contact him and have a relationship with him. Chris just seems to want to be left alone, without contact with anyone. I felt bad for him by the end of the book, like we shouldn't have been allowed to read it.
i had issues with Mel being killed off as well. I was heartbroken, and felt like it was a cliche. I was kind of expecting Sharon's mother to try to make up with her, and it made sense that she would try, but maybe I just really wanted that to happen for her. I appreciated Donnie helping her, but felt like Brecky was forced.
