In his scintillating debut, John Pipkin fictionalizes an ignoble event in noted naturalist Henry David Thoreau's life. One year before his historic retreat to the woods around Walden pond, Thoreau struck a match and carelessly started a mammoth fire that would go on to consume 300 acres of forest and farmland.

    " I had high hopes for this one, but it was, in a word, SLOW. Some interesting characters but I didn't really care what happened to them. Henry David Thorough comes across as a self-absorbed, spoiled, wanna-be - and this is probably right on target, but not a very sympathetic character. There is so little action and the story builds so slowly, I almost gave up on this one. Having trudged through to the end, I wasn't fond of the rather abrupt ending either. Little satisfaction to be found in this book and I was disappointed. "

    " This is a marvelously-written novel. Pipkin nails the 19th-century prose and perspective, but what's best is the way his characters speak. I was slightly dissatisfied with the "After" portion of the ending, but over all I think I understand why the book has garnered an award. It deserves more of them. "

    " The prose was like poetry. I absolutely loved it. The story evolves for each character, each intertwined in some way. I recommend it highly. "
