This is a terriffic book about finding God within oneself and within nature. As a member of the Baha'i Faith, I believe the teachings of the Manifestations of God like Christ, the Biddha, Krishna, Moses, muhammed, and , for today- Baha'u'llah, are the key to finding oneself. I would have liked to see Siddharta discovering this within the Buddha's teachings, but he went a different driection and found God another way- which is fine, but I wish he would have given the Buddha a chance, rather than assert that no teachings would ever provide bliss, which is incorrenct because all the teachings from the Manifestations of God hold Truth. But, again, a great story and he did find bliss in his own way.

I simply loved this book. Beautiful language, artfully written. I browsed a more modern version and it paled in comparison. This should be required reading for all high school students.

Classic Rendition of the Journey for Enlightenment and Meaning of Life Herman Hesse's Siddhartha is a one-of-a-kind fictional account concerning the journey of self- discovery. However, mind you that Siddhartha, our protagonist, is not Siddhartha Gautama (better known as the Buddha)—although these characters do briefly meet and part ways in this story. The story is set in the time of Buddha and takes places over the course of the protagonists entire life, with particular focus on Siddhartha's determination to find his own path to self-fulfillment and enlightenment. The plot and prose are deceptively simple, whereas the philosophical explorations are highly complex and original. Beautifully written, Hesse's Siddhartha is a book to savor, and it will complement the library of anyone enamored of literature, spirituality, or philosophy.

While the book is well-worth reading, the Nook version needs serious editing. The multitude of misspellings, omitted words, and other errors cause distractions and disruptions in the reading of this book.
