WALDEN is a great read. It is one of the best reflective retreats from life that I know of. Its simple format, simple writing (though inlaid beautifully with allusions: cultural, religious, scholarly, literary, and otherwise), and over focus on simplicity leave the reader with a smile after every reading (though perhaps it leaves the reader feeling slightly inadequate for not having achieved simplicity to Thoreau's extent).
