I have read Siddhartha several times. Each time I have read it was at a critical period of my life. The answer to the question of where does my path lie is always answered. If you have not read it, I heartily recommend it. If you have read it and enjoyed it as I have, I feel we have shared a tremendous experience.

Format: Audio Cassette
I read this book when I was 19. I am now 51. Having just discovered Amazon Books, I was "surfing" and searching out titles that came to memory. I also read the lyrical version in German in those now distant days, and spent much time looking for "Suleika", or "Zuleika". It brought me great peace of mind at that time, as I had to interrupt my college days in order to enter the Army and go to Vietnam. The book reads like the flowing river, and is in some ways an eternal story of search for meaning in life and realization. Like Sidhartha our search for meaning often ends at the beginning. Ultimately, we return to the basic and simple truths that were there when we were born. Growing up is a kind of struggle. Sidhartha is a story of idealism and virtue that survives ignorance, futility and evil. If in the end, we retain that idealism, our lives can be heroic and our conscience pure. Sometimes, I remember and recall the words: "From Sidhartha to Sidhartha is my coming and my going." It is a book of haunting beauty and depth of meaning. W. H. L./Bellevue

One of the best books I've ever read, in its short story it teaches many life lessons. I strongly recommend to everyone.

For those who have reached a certain age, returning to this book, read in youth, can be a wonderful experience. The final scene of the story illustrates this perfectly. Of course to come back to it, one must meet it the first time, and I encourage all to take that journey.

There are a large number of "typos," though none are indecipherable, but out of respect for the work, they should be corrected.

There is a lifetime worth of experience here. I encourage all to enter in.

By G. Larouche TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 19 2012
Format: Paperback
Do not let the book's shortness mislead you: Hesse managed to pack more beauty, inspiration and faith in those 100 pages than some people write in an entire lifetime. It can be read in a couple of days, even in an evening, and I suggest to re-read it every once in a while, because I always seem to find something I had missed the last time around. The lyrical narrative takes you through the journeying of Siddhartha, a young Indian man seeking illumination and freedom through different paths. It's almost impossible to sum up, but reading how he finds himself through each experience, how he changes and evolves, is a fascinating and comforting process to observe. It is very touching because his struggles are deeply human, and that is what makes this book so inspiring and soothing.

I highly recommend this book to students of Buddhism, people with an interest in spiritual pursuits, but it is a beautiful and moving read anyone can enjoy.

The story is great! Very thought provoking and inspirational. Hesse is a genius. The only negative is the publishing is very poor - many spelling and grammar mistakes. I would recommend buying alternative published copy of this novel.

Hesse's _Siddhartha_ has long been perhaps my favorite novel. This audio version from Audio Partners does it full justice. It is based on Hilda Rosner's classic translation. While it is abridged, it is difficult to immediately realize what is missing. Plus, Derek Jacobi (I, Claudius) does a magnificent job with the voice characterizations.
If you dismissed this great novel as something for idealistic undergrads, then I would advise you to read it, or listen to it, again in middle age. You will be surprised how much more you might see in it....
As the book says: Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.
Amen

Personally to be honest with you, this was one of the best books I've ever read for school, it explores the life of a man who starts out with only his faith, and then indulges into the lavish life of a rich woman. Making friends along the way this sort of "cocky" religous man finally encounters the real life. Kudos Hesse, Kudos
