    Description

    Here is the dramatic story of young, docile Emil Sinclair's descent - led by precocious schoolmate Max Demian - into a secret and dangerous world of petty crime and revolt against convention and eventual awakening to selfhood. A brilliant psychological portrait of a troubled young man's quest for self-awareness, this coming-of-age novel achieved instant critical and popular acclaim upon its 1919 publication. A landmark in the history of 20th-century literature, it reflects the author's preoccupation with the duality of human nature and the pursuit of spiritual fulfillment.

    Demian

    We listened to Demian on a long car journey. It is a very dense, complex piece of writing...but we greatly enjoyed it! We still have a few chapters left, and we tried to listen to it on the hifi at home but it's the type of story that works best in the car - just you in the pod with the narrator! It would make a good companion on a long flight, for example. The introduction, giving biographical information about Hesse, was also useful. I'd remembered him from school (Siddhartha) but didn't know much about his life. The story of Demian is interesting, because the path it's going to follow isn't obvious. The imagery and characterisations are well-drawn, I think - certainly I have pictures in my head as the narrator relates the story (I hasten to add that I am the passenger in the car!). In short, it's worth investing the time in Demian.

    Moralist sounding Narration overdoes the story for me

    Demian is marked as “Cain” of the story “Cain and Able”. Using that story as a jumping off point this is a reversal of “chosen ones” born with secret knowledge. Demian is a kind of guide for Emil Sinclair. If you read Carl Jung, you’ll quickly see that much of the story was drawn from that. The problem for me isnt so much the story but the telling of it. Something about the Jeff Woodman’s reading for this book was off. It feels very pretentious especially when there isn’t a story being told but Emil Sinclair’s thoughts being hashed out. I wanted to vomit in these sections - reminded me of narration on Christian Right Wing radio. So, for me, a better narrator who could temper the story without coming off as preachy would have served this project better. I usually am careful listening to the audible reading samples, I missed this one. Listen to Carl Jung’s “Memories, Dreams and Reflections” instead. You’ll get the exact story with far greater depth and insight and far superior narration.

    changed me

    this little book has taken me six months to get through. every so often, a passage or phrase would hit me a little too closely to home, and i would need to put it down. i don't even have the words to explain why this book has affected me so deeply, but i know it's one i'll be returning to again and again over the course of my life. thank you, namjoon, for the recommendation.

    Amazing

    When I was a kid, this book was one of my favourite ever. Now, ages after, I bought this audiobook. I was amazed again.

    Hello

    There was another review here that said this book is one of the only the wise can see type. I to don’t think I’m one of them wise either. Great book and all, but does it deserve to be one that is held in such high esteem for so long? I found the middle pretty boring especially. My guess is that if you are the type that would like to start a new cult and need a ideology structure, this book would be part of your bible to study, and you would love it. Or maybe if your the type that a cult appeals to you, maybe something like the heavens gate cult, then you would love this book as well. This is not to judge in a negative way, just to let the reader know what to expect depending on how they think. If you are especially secular and despise any type of spiritual thinking you probably won’t like it. If you are a young religious person you may be changed by new ideas. I don’t know exactly what I am, but To me this book is pretty forgettable. I did actually love the narrator though... Lib high football rules!
