A "classic" that most of us read in school, but it's not fully appreciated until you read it with a few life experiences behind you.

Amazing audiobook.

Why would you need a sleeping pill when you could listen to this? I was excited to get this audio several years ago and was greatly disappointed. I find it incredibly ironic that Thoreau wrote a book about simplistic living that drones on and on. I think the audio reader was even bored by this. Everything in this book could have been said in 30 pages, now that would have been simplistic living. What a huge disappointment.

I got a little bogged down with all the details of fashioning things for his living, I never did figure out how he jury-rigged a remote for his TV. Anyway, it's amazing how far we as a society has gotten away from his attitudes of independence, we just seem to get busier and busier.

Difficult prose, but a fascinating essay on life.
reviewed Walden on + 15 more book reviews
A sturdy individualist and a lover of nature, Henry David Thoreau was typical of his time and place-an epitome of the Yankee spirit. In March 1845 he set out to live life in a new way. Borrowing an ax, he built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, MA where he lived until September 1847. Walden is a record of that experiment in simple living. In this fascinating work Thoreau describes his Robinson Crusoe existence, bare of creature comforts but rich in contemplation of the wonders of nature and the ways of man.

A classic.

Thoreau is brilliant. His insights on the condition of humanity are as relevant now as they were 150 years ago--if not more so.

There's a little tear on the cover of this book. Other than that it's in perfect condition.
