If you've ever harboured thoughts of retiring to the country side and living off your own small farm, Walden is a book for you. Henry Thoreau, an American philosopher documents his experiences of living in solitude at the Walden lake.

The book lacks a structure but generally discusses a lot of topics like economy, neighbours, literature, self-sufficient life. Even within these topics, the chain of thoughts is not very coherent and makes the book very hard to read. Nevertheless, a very interesting book documenting experiences of life by the shores a beautiful lake.
