What did you like best about Demian? What did you like least?

I never write a bad review. But this masterpiece of a book is ruined here. Worst narration I've ever encountered, and the translation is also inferior.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Demian?

'Demian' is a beautiful and powerful book, breaching spiritual and existential complexities that are still confounding and taboo in our current culture. It's profound, mystical, erotic and communicates highly esoteric topics expertly and poetically.


How could the performance have been better?

The narrator mispronounces words that any school child would know, and speaks for the characters in absurd affectations of voice. His inflection is monotone and unintelligent. Not suitable for such an important book.
