Thoreau is brilliant

A brilliant example of both literary skill and political thought. The reading is fairly good even if I found the particular North American accent a bit cumbersome - though this is a fairly personal point of pretence. Still it hasn't stopped me listening to this about 6 times.

Go Henry!

Great message. This is important information in our day and age of unjust and immoral laws.

Navel gazing we all need in this political times

What made the experience of listening to Civil Disobedience the most enjoyable?

It's a classic that anyone who wants to be a better person should read.

Any additional comments?

You see his point and hopefully it helps you to grow. And think more fully of the implications your life can have on others, and the power in one and all of us.

horrible voice

Thoreau is a master at words. After I hastily purchased this, the narrator's voice was like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard. I am gravely sorry that I did. his voice is irritating, his inflection unwitting. I am totally turned off and I want to trade it in for a different narrator.

well read, appropriate rage,

Gets to the essence of our right to listen to our conscience and to follow our conscience with disobedience when necessary.
