Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods) is an American book written by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development.
Great story and great narration.
Wow, this book is awful! The entire contents are just a whiny guy's pseudo philosophical ramblings about life. At least the story is narrated well.

Very sweet voice. I love a lot to listen again and again.
Have always wanted to read this Classic. 3/4 of the way through, I'm enjoying HDT's insight and reflections about nature and economy, birds, beans, berries, neighbors, trains, visitors and living of the land. I do hope that someone can correct the synopsis above to reflect 1854 as the publishing date for Walden. As stated, "1884" is well after HDT passed away.
Very beautifully narrated. I loved it. His voice sounds so real and so close like you can have a conversation with him while listening to each word of Walden. For me it's like music.
Excellent reader. I can imagine Thoreau himself reading it the same way. The reader accurately portrays the sarcasm and natural inflections in the work.
I love the Reader's Voice.
I keep coming back to this. Well read!
