Demian
Format: Paperback|Change


on 1 April 2017
A brilliant coming of age tale concerning young Emil Sinclair, who rises above the unthinking herd, under the influence of the Nietzschean figure of Demian. Hesse captures the mythological aspects of growing up, along with the usual brilliant psychological insights into the human condition. Maybe not wholly satisfying, but hugely enjoyable and eye opening nevertheless.

You travel along with the characters and remember your own past as a result. A great read and one where you continue to think about the characters, story and meanings long after you finish it

Great story but the contrast between the font and page were difficult at times; on occasion the pages were too glossy for the darkness of the font or on occasion unevenness of printing process on the page.

The fascinating contrast between the light holy world and the dark sinful world is vividly described and the torments with it.

The print was tiny, so I couldn't read it. Probably should get varifocals or bifocals, to be fair...

I read this book years ago and bought this to read it again. It is a fascinating book that I can really relate to.

Not an easy read but worth the effort. The relationships are complex but involving with an interesting ending.

I read it first in the elementary school. Thought it was a weird book. Read again as a high school student - was fun to read, especially the early part on the school social environment. Read again after university - so thought-provoking. A classic indeed.
