A beautiful masterpiece and an excellent narrator

What made the experience of listening to Siddhartha the most enjoyable?

The contrast in personality between Siddhartha and Govinda. They are actually two sides of the same sentient being, e.g., passive versus active.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Siddhartha is my favorite, but Vasudeva is not any less. Siddhartha personally experienced everything all the way through his life, but Vasudeva lent him a hand to make him realize what life is all about.

Have you listened to any of Michael A. Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I did check out a few audible books narrated by Michael A. Smith. This is perhaps the best one. His soothing voice was very clear which made it extremely easy for me to follow the story. Most importantly, Michael's peaceful and neutral intonation imposed no unnecessary impression on me. Compared to all other versions of Siddhartha, this is by far the best!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

There is no way that I can digest this much of information all at once.

Any additional comments?

Reading a book and listening to a book are really different. Michael has given his listeners an excellent performance.

Good book with a great ending. Terrific narration.

The story is ok but the ending was so good! Worth reading just for that. Great narration too.
