Walden by Henry David ThoreauWalden by Henry David Thoreau

Walden by Henry David Thoreau is one of the best known non-fiction audio-books created by an USA. This book has been published in 1854 and contains details Thoreaus life for 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days around the coasts of Walden Pond. Walden is neither a love affair nor a true autobiography, but a social critique of the Western World, with every chapter presaging some aspect of humanity that needed to be either offcast or lauded. Along with his critique of the cultured world, Thoreau explores other issues upsetting man in society, ranking from economy and reading to loneliness and higher laws. He also gets time for conversation about the experience at Walden Pond itself, opining on the animals and the way people treated him for living there, applying those experiences to bring out his philosophical positions. This extended commentary on nature has often been explained as a hard statement to the natural religion that transcendentalists like Thoreau and Emerson were preaching.
