  • Simple Story of Buddha Nov 10, 2011
    by TomKing

    Hesse is a fine writer and I have enjoyed his Steppenwolf since my college reading many years ago. Siddharta is a fine introduction to
    the Buddha's life and philosophy. It was an excellent read after I completed my course on Buddhism (by The Great Courses set of DVDs)
    A wonderful way to get the feeling of this religion in any comparative study of the 5 great religions.

    Read this and loved it. Bought it on a suggestion from a friend and I couldn't put it down. This is a book that will forever stay in my collection.

    An eloquently written book about the spiritual journey.

  • Powerful and Transcendent Simplicity Aug 19, 2008
    by markfabiano

    This short novel following the adventure into enlightment by one Siddhartha Gautauma is a pure example of Hesse's story-telling genius. No wonder it helped to launch an intellectual revolution in the 50s and 60s. The prose, like a parable, is utterly accessible, the plot compelling-a boy on a journey through life stages towards enlightement, and links this to modern, andyet timeless, sensibilities for finding oneself, transcending the materialistic quandries, and loving humanity. A must read for everyone from Junior High onward!

  • wonderful CD Aug 8, 2008
    by Lindalu

    I gave this to a dear friend, who prefers books on CD to listen to rather than read. She told me she thought it is a wonderful story told in an excellent way.
