Publisher's Summary

In Siddhartha, Herman Hesse conveys a very profound message for all those who seek meaning in their lives. Though set in India, the concerns of Siddhartha are universal, expressing Hesse's general interest in the conflict between mind, body, and spirit. It is a story of a Brahmin boy who follows his heart and ventures out into the world to experience life as a pious Brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover, and ordinary ferryman to a father - each life bringing a new awakening, bringing him closer to the truth until he is finally one with Buddha.

Outstanding audiobook (author+narrator)

Story's reviews are available in many resources, so I'll focus on the narrator. He has a really soothing voice and an excellent command of it. The toning, emphasizing and volume changes per context were all in place and outstanding. I hope I can get more books he has read.

Not THAT David Cross

Not read by the comedian, David Cross, if you're hesitating to buy based on that.

Great unexpected book!

This was a joyful experience. The narrator is excellent, the story is very good, very unexpected.

I was very touched by parts two and three. The detail that Herman Hesse delivers are astonishing.

I thought that the story was about the Buddha... Oh... Wrong! The Buddha is a small participant... It's about another Siddhartha, one that finds and loses enlightenment. One that experiences the world, the samsara, one that learns, that make mistakes and...

I wish you have a wonderful experience listening to this book.

Best audiobook experience yet - a must.

An unexpectedly inward-looking piece. A masterpiece that does a great job at trying to confer what true wisdom might feel like.

classic!

I'm glad that I've finally read Siddhartha!

Usually, I only read (listen to) stories once, but this is one that I'll buy, maybe even hardback, and come back to again!

Epic read for a spiritual path

Highly recommended for anyone, but especially for those seeking meaning and reflection on a spiritual path. The reader did well to bring it to life.
