During the two years and two months he spent there, he began to write "Walden", a chronicle of his coexistence with nature. Thoreau has an important place among naturalists, but "Walden" has also had an effect on the work of social reformers such as Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Leo Tolstoy and Gandhi.Hide synopsis

This book gives you a whole new perspective of life and present society. The author shares his thoughts and views of pretty much every aspect of life, disapproving of some of man's doings while recognizing the necessities of man. He also admires the greatness of Nature as he describes his time of solitude spent in the woods. A nice book for those who'd like to take a look at life differently and are open to new ideas...
When I retired two and a half years ago, I started a reading program which I had designed, trying to read as many of the so-called ?great or classic? books of the past few hundred years. I hate to admit defeat, but Thoreau?s ?Walden? left me so bored I finally gave up and put it away. I found it to be the very uninteresting ramblings of an opinionated man. I have read a large number of period books in the past few years. That was the only book that I could not complete.
