Book Review – Walden (Classics Club #1)

WaldenWalden by Henry David Thoreau

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

After hearing and reading so many good things about this book, I was quite excited to be finally reading it. I really wanted to like it, but in the end I didn’t, as much as I tried to.

I ploughed on through to the end, but I just found it to be too long and boring. There were some really interesting sections and thoughts, but too much of it was not that interesting for me. To be honest, I had to skim read the final few chapters, as I despaired of never being able to finish it.

In the end I gave it two stars, because there are some interesting parts. Unfortunately, there was too much uninteresting stuff to read just to find those parts. I think that the long drawn-out and rambling style put me off as well, and there were parts where I just wished he would get to the point, or just any point at all.
