Publisher's Summary

The passionate account of a young man's growing awareness of his own identity, of his involvement in the secret and dangerous world of petty crime, and how, influenced by a precocious schoolmate, he rebels against convention and discovers not only the great joy of independence, but his own new powers for good and evil.
©1919 Hermann Hesse (P)2012 Michael A. Smith

Enchanting

What does Michael A. Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I read the book in college, and Mr. Smith's voice makes the story flow. One can listen to the story without any distraction.

Terrible reader.

The reader is terrible- he has a droning monotone style which completely does not match the prose. I might as well use speech to text digital dictation. Please select better readers.
