    "Great Narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend it because it is Hesse's most beautiful story.


    What other book might you compare Siddhartha to and why?

    Life of Pi??


    Have you listened to any of Chris Hendrie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard Gatsby and Treasure Island, and Metamorphosis - this is hard to compare since it is more of an epic poem than a "novel".


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No Keanu Reeves!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I wrote a review and you lost it This is a beautifully rendered version of "Siddhartha" that captures the music of Hesse's tone and rhythm - Chris Hendrie's skills bring out the respect and love Hesse had for the life of this great teacher - in a voice that is captivating.

    "Great Story, Good Voice, Production Quality... Meh"
    Would you try another book from Hermann Hesse and/or Chris Hendrie?

    Would I? I did many years ago. Hesse is a fabulous story teller. He, Conrad and Kerouac made my late teens, early twenties very interesting. Chris Hendrie does a fine narrative. I have no issues with his performance here.


    Could you see Siddhartha being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It was... I do not remember it well.


    Any additional comments?

    Audio levels/production quality is variable. You'll have to adjust your volume level a couple times while listening to this book. As I listen to books the first time for the story and there after to fall asleep to, I give this one a passing grade for Awake listening (3.5/5 A's), and a needs improvement for sleep aid (2.25/5 Z's).
