My 16 Year old Son Loved it and He Despises Reading 20 Jan 2014
By Psychdoc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My 16 year old son read this book because he was forced to. He was getting an F in English and was going to lose his car unless he could get his grade up. So he grudgingly read this book. He loved it. Told me it changed his life. I was so intrigued that I bought a copy and am about four chapters in. Anything that can captivate a book hater - I'm all for it.

Poor translation or transcription 29 Jun 2014
By Peter V Wagener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read this novel several times and find this Kindle version riddled with grammatical errors. Some errors were just annoying while others, related to the inappropriate use of prepositions, lent an ambiguity to the text not present in other translations and I believe not intended by the author.

Amazon should remove this selection from their store.
An Eastern Lighthouse for the Lost Westerner 1 Sep 2014
By Firecat Hat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My name is Firecat Hat. As a writer, I love to read great writer’s works. And this book is definitely one I enjoyed.

‘Siddhartha’ is a deeply eastern philosophical story written by a westerner with a keen perception, and almost uncanny awareness, of not only eastern thinking, but depth of life itself. Sometimes the insights he has really impress me. He is aware of abstract concepts of life that few people in our modern world ever talk about.

‘Siddhartha’ is a remarkably insightful book by a remarkably insightful writer. The lessons about life that this book has to offer are deep – lessons one would be very lucky to hear from some aged and helpful older person, good enough to share with us.

The man is a guru.

The tragedy of the story, I believe, centers around Govinda, around that character’s separation from Siddhartha. Whether the separation from him is actually necessary for the two of them to advance on their roads through life is, I think, a subject for interesting debate. But Hesse shows that they separate, and indeed that it is necessary for the blossoming of their characters.

One can’t help but feel sorry for Govinda.

And I noticed something in this book worth remarking. While Hesse is brilliant philosophically, he does not bleed the emotional parts of the story to their maximum effect. That is, he never gets the reader to ‘feel’ the story on an emotional level. (He never made me cry). But, I must say that this also makes us feel the story’s emotion even better. Sometimes by not emphasizing the emotional tones, the reader is made to feel them – underlying as they are – even stronger.

Overall, this is a philosophy book almost unparalleled as such in the novel world. It shows us the journey of life, with masterful language that is very reader-friendly, cover to cover. It has the potential to be, in fact, life changing. And it stands with the classics, tall and deep. It stands like the Sequoia trees: tall for all to see, living on and on – timeless.

And one last point worth remarking. The book’s main point is something profound, and that I agree with. Happiness can not be pointed out precisely to one by anyone else. ‘Each entered the forest adventurous at a point that he himself had chosen, where it was darkest, and there was no way or path.’

One Soul flowing through all of us.... 23 July 2014
By Arthur von Boennighausen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition

As a Research Engineer and Scholar of Comparative Religion and Philosophy I have read this book every few years since I was about 10 years old [ now 53 ]. I have made an attempt to know more than most people about the evolution of human consciousness.

One day Siddhartha realizes that the Soul of every human being is like a river flowing toward the Superconciousness [ aka God ]. As such, there is only one Soul flowing through all of us. Those people out there are all YOU. They are not your brothers, and sisters, strangers and friends but YOU.
