Publisher's Summary

Walden is the classic account of two years spent by Henry David Thoreau living at Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts. The story is detailed in its accounts of Thoreau's day-to-day activities, observations, and undertakings to survive out in the wilderness for two years.

Thoreau's journal is an exquisite account of a man seeking a more simple life by living in harmony with nature. In today's fast-paced consumer-driven society, the austere lifestyle endorsed by Thoreau is as relevant and refreshing as ever.

    "Problem with editing"

    Although this is generally a good reading of this classic work, I must point out that there is a problem with the way the book has been divided into 2 parts. The end of Chapter 9 has been cut off at the end of Part One. Part Two begins with Chapter 10. Thus someone has made an error and left out a portion of the reading, because the reader is cut off in mid-sentence at the end of Part One.

    "Walden Is A Must-Read For All"

    Walden is a great counterbalance to the fast pace of modern day. Very prescient for a book more than a century and a half old, this is an enjoyable read with many important lessons. Henry David Thoreau's writing is excellent.

    "Disappointed"

    I was hoping for something more from what I thought would be a classic. Occasionally interesting, but more often quite boring.
