Henry David Thoreau

Walden by Henry David Thoreau Book Summary

It details Thoreau’s life for two years, two months, and two days around the shores of Walden Pond. Walden is neither a novel nor a true autobiography, but a social critique of the Western World, with each chapter heralding some aspect of humanity that needed to be either renounced or praised. Along with his critique of the civilized world, Thoreau examines other issues afflicting man in society, ranging from economy and reading to solitude and higher laws. He also takes time to talk about the experience at Walden Pond itself, commenting on the animals and the way people treated him for living there, using those experiences to bring out his philosophical positions.

GARBAGE!!!!!!. If this review let you put zero stars .........I would. I had to read this book for school and it was the worst book I ever read.

😒. I love to read but honestly, Thoreau is majorly overrated. I'm only reading it because the outdated American education system demands me to.

Wow. What is this book abuot

Dead boring. Go outside and stare at a tree for give hours instead, you'll thank me.

Worst book I've read. I completely agree with Donald and BunnieKiller. I love books and I enjoy reading things most people don't. But this book was the worst book I have ever read.

Walden. Interesting and a bit challenging.

Horrible. Horrible horrible horrible

Calming. It is very much something that I enjoyed.

Yikesville. I wanted to love it. Transcendentalism sounds like a beautiful and peaceful idea. HDT is a self proclaimed philosopher, and I wanted him to draw insights about day to day experiences around Walden. This happens in the first chapter, but dies out as he goes into trivial tirades and mundane descriptions of his surroundings. The last 3/5 of the book I found incredibly hard to read. Not well organized. I imagine this book will find its best use after the nuclear fallout when kids think a pond and trees are fairy tales. For me however, I can make a fair bit of these notes from stepping outside instead of reading this book. Give it a try but keep expectations low

Wow. I had to read an excerpt for ap course work and I loved it so I had to get the book!

slow but amazing. it is a slow read, its unavoidably boring at times to get through, however it is absolutely life changing. This book is an amazing existential experience and is philosophically wonderful. Take the time, read the book, it's incredible.

Read some place quiet. Got to really turn off all distractions to follow this book, but once you submerse yourself in it it is a very good read and amazing how we are still facing so many of the same problems today as we were in 1850.

Not an easy read. This isn't an easy read, but it's not friggin fight club. It's a classic, and a challenge, and it's worth it.
