Beschreibung von Audible

Narrator Jim Killavey's slight, distinctive accent perfectly conjures Henry David Thoreau's bookish intelligence and well-honed sense of humor in these meditations inspired by Cape Cod. Killavey performs Thoreau's observations with relish as he marvels at the sublime beauty of the seascape and considers the local history with a sharp eye, recounting the seizure of Eastham from the native population with a satirical spirit. While Killavey maintains Thoreau's unsentimental tone throughout the audiobook, he also makes apparent to listeners that many of these eloquent reflections were haunted by the consumptive Thoreau's awareness of his impending mortality.

Inhaltsangabe

In the early 1850s, Henry David Thoreau took many meditative walks along the coast. In Cape Cod he reflects on these beach-combing trips and the powerful forces of the sea.

Kritikerstimmen

"Jim Killavey reads Thoreau's thoughtful travelogue about the sea, the beaches and the spirit of Cape Cod, and it is a very enjoyable recording." ( Booklist)
