    " Ok, I admit it, I didn't read the entire book, but I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful Thoreau's writing is. Honestly, if you're not interested in nature and the mundane observations of a man walking in the woods or on the beach, then go watch paint dry and it'll be more interesting. I, however, indulged the nerd in myself with this book :) "

    " Easier to get through than The Maine Woods, maybe not as easy to get through as Walden. I don't know why I keep reading these "classic" books when I hate them so much. All this tells me is that anyone with a pen and an idea could be an author back then. I have no idea why these are supposed to be such intellectually stimulating books. I must be dumber than I think I am. "

    " I wish I could have said that I "loved" this book, but really, it was just a pleasant, relaxing, occasionally humorous essay that it might be tough to get someone else excited about. I'm glad I decided to read it, I learned a lot, and a few of the stories made me laugh, but it's also sad to think about how much the region must be changed since Thoreau's visit. If you're interested in themes of nature, the sea, shipwrecks, lighthouses, etc., I'd definitely recommend it (and in fact, I'd like to own a copy of it for my own library of those topics). If you need your reading to include murders and mayhem, it's probably not the book for you :) "

    " Nice description and history of Cape Cod. I read it while I was on the Cape and liked it. "
