The story of a youthful pilgrimage that seemingly failed. As the book opens, the narrator is engaged is writing the chronicle of this remembered adventure - the central experience of his youth.

Narration is awful

I absolutely love Herman Hesse and was excited to listen to this book. However, the narration of this audiobook is so bad that I can’t listen to it. Too bad. Will have to read the good old fashioned way.
