Brilliant text wonderful narrator

The narrator brings a dramatic authenticity to the text, which is itself a timeless classic of wisdom ;) (as much as it may be communicated)

This is the third time I imbibe Hesse's presentation of Siddarth's ancient story. Each time I'm moved and fascinated, even more so I can see how deeply this book has actually affected my life.

I give this book to those closest to me, it is life changing and meaningful. If you want a story that is mesmerizing and profound, read this book.

Great story. Melodramatic narration.

I wished that the narrator would have just spoken in a normal voice and not in the voice of someone sounding like a voiceover actor from a commercial. Such a bombastic tone for a humble character seemed ironic.
