He made me want to get up and just walk - in any direction, with no purpose except that of walking. It's not about taking excercise. It's about wandering for two or three hours and observing nature, the sky, trees, walking past villas, down road, across fields and being excited by a new vista. It's a refreshing simple book to read that reminds you that when life gets too complex and hurried, all you have to do is put on your jacket, open the front door and go for a walk.
Thoreau writes well, and has many interesting observations. Whether his observations and conclusions add up to a coherent philosophy of life is more debateable. And whether others should make the time/space/leisure to follow in his footsteps is far from clear. Is Thoreau taking a walk out beyond himself? Or is he walking away from conventional responsibilities?
Whatever view you take of Thoreau he's an interesting character and interesting author, and you'll enjoy the time you spend in his company.
