Review

Finally after hearing so much about this book from a couple of people who claimed that their life changed for the better after reading this book, I finally managed to get my hands on this masterpiece by Hermann Hesse. It is a natural tendency with me to not be overly satisfied with anything from which I have great expectations. Same was the case with this book. I was expecting it to be mind-blowing which it did not turn out to be. Maybe being a Hindu myself and having reasonable knowledge of the vedas, theory of Karma and our Hindu teachings pertaining to the 4 stages in a man's life, I cannot honestly say that I learnt anything new about spirituality from this book, which wasn't already known to me. Having grown up watching Ramayana, Mahabharata, Chanakya, Ashoka and other similar shows on TV, this book for me was not really an eye opener - unlike for many westerners. I must appreciate the bravado of Mr. Hesse, a westerner himself, to have undertaken such a complex subject to tackle and do a wonderful job. It is definitely a great book to read but my expectations got the better of me! --By JM on 14 November 2014

I had this one on my reading list for long but din't quite read it until recently and what an experience has it been. Its a short book, one can finish it in one sitting and would certainly get you hooked in the first 10 pages itself. Hermann Hesse's knowledge and perception of Hinduism is incredible. The main protagonist Siddhartha's story of self realization is conveyed in a very simple manner and yet its so impact full. The story makes one feel that there is certainly something wrong with the way we operate in our daily lives and there is more to us than just doing our chores in order to fulfill our sensory pleasures. For the spiritual, curious or for someone seeking a break from the regular genres, this is a MUST READ. --By siddharth srivastava on 16 May 2014

Indeed ,perserverance as well as deep plunge into the teachings of Buddha enabled Hesse to produce this gem of wisdom. Very deep. You have to read it again and again, specially the last chapter to grasp the very deepness of this book. Go buy it and read with utmost patience. --By Ankit Telang on 10 November 2015
