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.

I've listened to over 100 books and most were pretty good. But maybe because I was trying to drive and keep up with this book, that I found it hard to follow. The author seems to change topics as quickly as street lights change their signals and I was not able to stay interested. I listened to two CDs and then returned it. Why three stars? It's Henry David Thoreau. He gets the benefit of the doubt.
