Great Narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend it because it is Hesse's most beautiful story.

What other book might you compare Siddhartha to and why?

Life of Pi??

Have you listened to any of Chris Hendrie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have heard Gatsby and Treasure Island, and Metamorphosis - this is hard to compare since it is more of an epic poem than a "novel".

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No Keanu Reeves!

Any additional comments?

Yes, I wrote a review and you lost it This is a beautifully rendered version of "Siddhartha" that captures the music of Hesse's tone and rhythm - Chris Hendrie's skills bring out the respect and love Hesse had for the life of this great teacher - in a voice that is captivating.

Subpar pronunciation takes away from what is a great book

The narrator Chris Hendrie constantly messes up Eastern Religious jargon which ruins the book for me. At the time of writing this review there is another version available of the audiobook and I would recommend getting that instead. The content no doubt is of top quality, it’s just this particular narration that is bad.
Get the other version, imo. As far as the book goes, there are few books for me that qualify as a must-read for everyone and this is one of them.
