In the early spring of 1845, Henry David Thoreau built and lived in a cabin near the shore of Walden Pond in rural Massachusetts. For the next two years, he enacted his own Transcendentalist experiment, living a simple life based on self-reliance, individualism, and harmony with nature. The journal he kept at that time evolved into his masterwork, Walden, an eloquent expression of a uniquely American philosophy.

The quality of the narration is excellent, particularly in tones and emotions imparted.
Some negatively comment on the slower pace of the reading.
I think the tempo is appropriate, if you are the type that require faster digestion of information then I would recommend some other topic entirely.

I will not review the author or the content, you know what you have searched for.

I know this is a beginners book... buts it devoid of details, meaningful content and strategies. It strangely doesn't even contain any significant firsthand experiences.

There is no cure for being who you truly are.… In a cottage high atop Llanfair Mountain, sixteen-year-old Clara lives with her sister, Maren, and guardian Auntie. By day, they gather herbs for Auntie's healing potions. By night, Auntie spins tales of faraway lands and wicked fairies. Clara's favorite story tells of three orphan infants—Clara, who was brought to Auntie by a stork; Maren, who arrived in a seashell; and their best friend, O'Neill, who was found beneath an apple tree. One day, Clara discovers shimmering scales just beneath her sister's skin.

This is a great adventure/coming of age tail. Great to help people realize that sometimes being ordinary can lead to extraordinary adventures.
