Walden - Henry David Thoreau Elegant language, amazing conclusion of humanism, independence and reverence. Sadly I was bored to death by all the accounts of his 'experiment' that take up the 17 chapters preceding the conclusion. Sure, he writes beautifully and had I been in a more leisurely mind I may have appreciated it quite a bit more. However, my reading experience was marked with exasperation and impatience until I reached the concluding chapter. Perhaps that is in itself a sign that I am not living right. Oh well.
