Publisher's Summary

Siddhartha is Nobel Prize-winning author Hermann Hesse's most famous and influential work, a novel of self-exploration that will linger in your mind and spirit for a lifetime.A young man, blessed with loving parents and a safe home in a world where want and neglect abound, leaves this haven in search of himself. He joins the Samanas, a band of wandering ascetics without possessions or earthly ties. His quest unfulfilled, he descends into a life of unbounded luxury and indulgence. Where is truth? Where will his soul find true ease? In denial? In decadence? Or in some truth far greater than himself, so simple, so close to him, yet so obvious that only clear eyes may see it?
Siddhartha reawakens questions most of us have long ceased asking ourselves and opens paths to spirituality many of us have never traveled.
Translated by Joachim Neugroschel.

Very Interesting to Listen

The narrator is very expressive. The story itself
is simple but extra ordinary in the vivid descriptive passages.
For the impatient and for those curiously after the twist and turns,
it would turn out to be outright boring. But for those
in a spiritual path, it is time worth spent.

This presentation of one of my favorite books, is nothing short of excellent.I enjoyed listening very much. The narrators vocals were pleasantly soothing and harmonious with the the story of Sidhartha. The story is told without revision, silly soundtrack, or irritating sound effects. There is an informative lecture and commentary after the reading about Herman Hesse, and this classic tale of Sidhartha.
