Publisher's Summary

Auf der Suche nach dem Sinn seines Lebens schlägt der junge Brahmane Siddhartha viele Wege ein: Er wird Asket und Pilger, dann Kaufmann und Vater. Doch immer glaubt er, gescheitert zu sein, wird des Lebens überdrüssig, bis er eines Tages begreift, dass in der Vielfalt seiner Erfahrungen die Erkenntnis verborgen ist.

Ein Buch, dessen Tiefe in der kunstvoll einfachen und klaren Sprache verborgen liegt, eine Klarheit, die vermutlich die geistige Erstarrung jener literarischen Philister aus dem Konzept bringt, die immer so genau wissen, was gute und was schlechte Literatur ist.

Der große Charakterdarsteller Ulrich Matthes gibt der Weisheit von Hesses Werk eine Stimme, die uns nicht mehr loslässt.

Critic Reviews


Siddhartha ist für mich eine wirksamere Medizin als das Neue Testament.
-- Henry Miller

Ulrich Matthes liest das Kultbuch der Hippies mit einer Stimme, die keinen mehr losläßt.
-- F. F. Dabei

Absolutely captivating & thought-provoking

Couldn't recommend it more! Deeply intriguing story. Any words to describe it in more detail feel inadequate spontaneously. Narrator voice is nice; reading is good.

So much wisdom!

A book that each human should have read at least once in their life, although many might never grasp it's full depth... but even that wouldn't matter because it still will always be am invitation to reflect upon life.
Well read.
A Masterpiece!

Brilliant book. Great Narration.

Wonderful, emotionally acute book. Wonderfully read. The narrator puts his heart into it. Warning: if you’re sleepy when you listen to this, it can put you out.
