Description

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development - a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Thoreau makes much ado about literally nothing

I didn't dislike this book despite what my title implies. But you should know ahead of time that he's spends a 2 years (?) alone at a pond and wrote a book about his musings. He spends lots of time doing nothing and so spends a great deal of time talking about the nothing he is doing. (hopefully that explains my title).

I found that his mind wandered much the same as mine when I camp for extended periods of time. And therefore could relate to him, and enjoyed his putting my feelings into much more eloquent words than I ever could.

If you aren't interested in poetic and philosophical musings, you aren't going to be interested in this book.

A timeless masterpiece...

The best parts for me were reading Throreau's musings about living a simplistic life and showing respect for nature. What we can all learn from his writings. It transcends time.

This is a Memoir

This is not a book to read if you are looking for a thrilling story line. But his writing is very descriptive and poet. He has good opinions that present an opportunity for discussion and self reflection. This is a good book to review when you are learning about writing styles.

Nature described at it's best

I liked this story of living by a pond. Written so long ago. Now of course there are hardly any birds compared to then
