I love audio books but this one was difficult for me to follow because of a constant need for the author to instill history into the story. sometimes this works very well but in this case it did not. it simply added to the already confusing story and i decided to leave the eunuch detective to solve this mystery without me listening.
I could not listen to the narrator drone on and on with his deep monologue voice. Made it impossible to listen to this wonderful novel by Hesse. Too bad.
I listened to four chapters or five I'm not sure but the ongoing drone of the voice and not knowing when it was the narrator when it was the poet or who was who became maddening so i am giving up without the slightest bit of interest about the journey or its end. I think this book is more about itself than anything else best left for literary connoisseurs who can appreciate the fine art of writing about writing.
