I really wasn’t sure how I was going to like this book when I first started reading it, because it is not within the genres that I normally read. I found myself quickly immersed in the life and thoughts of the main character Andre. Poor guy, he seriously had nothing but bad luck throughout the entire story. It makes for an interesting read as one event leads to another. I found the story intriguing, especially has Andre’s more primitive self begins to take over and he fights to survive in a world that he just doesn’t fit into.
The author brings up a lot of good points about our society and how technology often rules our lives. It is something that I have often thought about myself. The writing style was excellent and flowed smoothly. I think I may have caught one grammar mistake. I read the book in two sittings so I wasn’t focused on the spelling and grammar so much as the story itself.

This book was such a joy to read... It tells the tale of a young man who after being thrown out of the confines of society, lives in the wild, stripped of all superficialities. The story is full of twists and turns and moments that will leave you desperately wanting to turn the page to discover what happens next. Krocky's style of writing is one that paints such vivid pictures with wonderful imagery and bone chilling descriptions. The story is such a unique take on the human experience and will keep you immersed throughout the entire book. I could hardly put it down and would highly recommend this- such a great read!

This was a very different story. The main character gets into some trouble and decides to remove himself from society. He requests that the court allow him to go free. The judge agrees and banishes him from society. He is transported out of LA and dropped off in the forest somewhere. No food, other than the few energy bars he stashed in his back pack... he becomes a person who is living off the land without any job or source of income. He is not very good at catching his food and resorts to sneaking back into LA, on foot, and dumpster diving for meals. He also goes back to LA to see his girlfriend and finally realizes that she really isn't on the same wavelength that he is. It is an interesting story and points out the pitfalls of thinking that one could easily live off the land.

This story follows a young man as he gets fed up with his life in society and begins to appreciate the natural world and embrace his animal side (vaguely similar to what that McCandless guy did in "Into The Wild.") I've felt those kinds of urges- leave society behind, live a simple life surviving off the land- so the plot was interesting to me. Furthermore, the events that take place seem pretty realistic, as if they could actually happen to someone. And the ending was pretty good. I wasn't sure how this story would wrap up, but I think the author did a good job with the route he went.

The main character was also interesting. At times I couldn't understand his actions (or why he chose to do the things he did) but that was redeemed by the fact that he is introspective (especially by the end) and he has a clear voice as the narrator. Overall, a good lead character.

There are a few typos, not too bad, but they are there. "Trail" instead of "trial," a few missing words, stuff like that. Since, I was enjoying the story it was pretty easy to overlook them, but the editing is probably 3.5 star (since amazon doesn't award half stars I'll round up since I liked this book.)

Squeamish readers beware: You might find some of the scenes in this book distasteful. There is mention of things like vomiting and feces. There is a sex scene. However they all fit within the context of the story and are not used gratuitously. I just thought I would mention it for anyone who has prudish tendencies.

Recommended for readers who like character development based stories that include some action.

Highly recommend to anyone who has ever felt the urge to strip off your clothes, leave society behind and go run through the trees naked.
