After trudging through 25% of this highly anticipated book with all the great blurbs by peers such as Jon Krakauer I had to uit reading it The backstory Dial was providing was all about Dial and how hard he worked teaching his son Cody the ways of the wild It is unfortunate that Roman did not begin the book with his search for his lost son Throughout what can only be imagined as an agonizing operation he could have provided the necessary backstory details to emphasize the preparedness provided by Roman for his son to survive in the most extreme environments I could not help feeling the book was written to assuage a father s guilt for losing his son I cannot imagine how hard this was on Roman but he supposedly wrote a book about it But all I gathered by reading a uarter of it was how great an outdoorsman and father Roman Dial was And that is not good enough for me In fact the book was a bore

This story had grabbed me when I read about it online I have traveled to Corcovado National Park and was curious about what happened to this adventurous young man While reading this book though I kept asking myself why didn t I like the author What was it about his writing that made me dislike him I realized that he has such an entitled point of view His name dropping and bragging about his various adventures was tiring How self important he is I understand how he feels about the loss of his son but why should our taxpayer dollars be used to rescue someone who voluntarily goes into the wilderness by himself breaking the laws of foreign country Because his father knows people in high places Ugh The writing was pretty bland though I enjoyed his descriptions of nature In the end I felt for him but also believe that both he and his son could have been respectful of the rest of the people and creatures on earth
