Description

Hermann Hesse’s classic novel Siddhartha, takes place in ancient India around the time of the Buddha (6th century BC). Siddhartha and his companion Govinda set out in search of enlightenment. Siddhartha goes through a series of changes and realizations as he attempts to achieve this goal. Siddhartha joins the ascetics, visits Gotama, embraces his earthly desires, and finally communes with nature, all in an attempt to attain Nirvana. The novel shows how the path to enlightenment cannot be conferred to another person because it is different for everyone and will likely never be achieved simply by listening to or obeying an enlightened one. Words and teachings may describe the truth but are not the Truth itself; being concepts, they trap you, since enlightenment means release from concepts.

Sounds rushed

I wanted to listen to Siddharta, because I remember reading it many years ago with great joy. Hermann Hesse being one of the great names that one simply must read or hear this was sure to be a winner. But the narrator does not seem to be well enough suited to the text. I do really like Harish Bhimani's accent, yet, overall I can't seem to keep up with the meaning of each sentence. Before I have fully absorbed it, the narrator has already finished the next sentence. Herman Hesse writes with such simplicity that each phrase needs time to shine in its own meaning. The sheer speed of the narration does not give the listener much time for absorbing the sentence, and the narration suffers from it.

less than

This was less than I hoped it would be. I thought that the reader was flat, this could simply be my interpretation of him trying to bring a tone of abiding respect to the subject at hand.
It would be a hard job to give life to a book that is an internal reflection. Still, I found the reader made it a tad dreary. I liked the print version of the book very much, this rendition left it without color.

Beautiful and wise beyond words.

Exceptional narrator! I loved it.
It is an interesting addition with some background traditional Indian music.
I highly recommend it.

I have listened again and again

Quite simply this is a great book and a great telling. The message and its ethos are profound and told simply.

Hesse is a genius

Hesse synthesizes the best of Eastern teaching in a moving and intimate story of the path of life and realization.

too much repetition

there were many valuable thoughts in there but if the same simple thought is expressed 5 times only slightly different, I get annoyed.

Beautiful book

It is a beautiful book about life and self discovery. It is a fascinating view of how only by living and experimenting the world consciously one can find wisdom, peace, happiness and tranquility.
