I'm reviewing the Kindle version of this book ... it's hard to believe that the publishers have released this with all of the errors in the text. It's an insult to the author.
I read the paperback when I was a teen in the 1970's. Now, 40 years later, I can finally identify with Siddartha and his quest to find a personal awakening outside an established faith.
A very thoughtful novel, completely spoiled by a half-arsed conversion to Kindle.
“Truly, nothing in the world has so occupied my thoughts as this I, this riddle, the fact I am alive, that I am separated and isolated from all others, that I am Siddhartha! And about nothing in the world do I know less about than me, about Siddhartha!”
This is not religion or dogma, this is the eternal search of consciousness, the seeking of peace through understanding.
“It is not for me to judge another man's life. I must judge, I must choose, I must spurn, purely for myself. For myself, alone.”
A book that is beautiful and full of wisdom, an introduction to the most interesting ideas the orient has to offer. written in 1922 it influenced our culture greatly opened a door to a system of belief that does not require the submission of the self to dogma but the flowering of the self.
“Within Siddhartha there slowly grew and ripened the knowledge of what wisdom really was and the goal of his long seeking. It was nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.
This thought matured in him slowly, and it was reflected in Vasudeva's old childlike face: harmony, knowledge of the eternal perfection of the world, and unity.”
A way of seeing the world and life without so much fear, and acceptance of the opportunity that is life not a call to make every action in this live a preparation for death, but a preparation for understanding for accepting the good and the bad without rancor without begging to a god.
“You will become tired, Siddhartha."
"I will become tired."
"You will fall asleep, Siddhartha."
"I will not fall asleep."
"You will die, Siddhartha."
"I will die.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
“All this had always been and he had never seen it; he was never present. Now he was present and belonged to it. Through his eyes he saw light and shadows; through his mind he was aware of moon and stars (p. 38).”
So if you need a spiritual revival or a beautiful novel I can not recommend a better book, I who is a non believer recommend a little ॐ ( Om ).
You are charging full paperback price - but the text has just been slung from scanner to Kindle version. I counted at least 2-3 mistakes per page, and sometimes more - in some places I had to stop and work out what the original text might have read?
Very poor quality indeed. Hesse deserves better than this.
I have recommended it countless times to everyone I meet and I will keep doing so.
One of those books that really makes you look at life in a different way. I can see myself returning to this book many times.

Book a little on the large size but does not distract from the content.
