Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up-Henry David Thoreau's classic, first published in 1854 and reporting on his experiences at the eponymous site where he lived in physical and social independence during the mid-1840's, receives refreshing treatment here. William Hope reads leisurely but with feeling, offering listeners the illusion that the author is speaking directly to them. The abridgements are not substantive, so listeners will feel that they have become acquainted with the complexities of a text that is both orderly and sprinkled with irony and other literary devices. The chapters are tastefully set off by musical interludes that complement Thoreau's own rhythms. Not only is this an excellent alternative for students assigned to read the text that is often offered in tiny print without benefit of margins, but it is also possible to suggest this to thoughtful teens who are seeking an intellectually engaging listening experience for their personal enjoyment. Hope's pacing invites readers with minimal skills to accompany their print foray with his narration. The careful editing here assures that they will not become lost between page and sound.

From Library Journal

This edition of Thoreau's classic contains an introduction and annotations by Bill McKibben, who asserts that "at the close of the 20th century, it is most crucial to read Walden as a practical environmentalist's volume, and to search for his heirs among those trying to change our relation to the planet." Even if you don't buy his argument, you still get a dandy little hardcover for $15.

Just order this book and read a few pages.
Linda J. Schiller-Hanna
Each one provides same-page explanatory notes that help the reader interpret the sometimes esoteric references in Henry David Thoreau's original text.
Corinne H. Smith
Henry David Thoreau's Walden is one of the great classics of American letters.

Format: Paperback
I respect this book because it is a classic. And there are a lot of quotes and sentences I love from this book. But I didn't really like the book as a whole. Boring and I didn't really feel the "life in the woods". It might be an enjoyable book for anyone that likes classics and "older" books. But I do think this book is overrated.

I keep this book beside me a lot. The passages have a calming effect because it talks about things in nature. Great copy! Happy to GET THIS BOOK! I love this author's words. The book is still in good condition after all this time. By the way, forgive me for not having done this review before now. Life happens ALOT.

Someone refered to Walden the other day as a special discipline in his summer retreats. I had to have it an just getting it on my Kindle for almost nothing was very helpful.
