Solitude. Had I been reading a novel featuring the character Chris Knight, I would have set it aside concluding that no person could be as odd as Chris. Having read about the life of Chris Knight in Michael Finkel’s non-fiction book titled, The Stranger in the Woods, I have a new understanding about solitude and how strong the desire for solitude can be in a person’s life. Knight spent twenty seven years living alone in the Maine woods without contact with other humans. Any reader longing for a bit more solitude will come away from this book with the insight that one can get too much of any good thing.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
