Knowing almost nothing about Buddha, I was surprised how exciting this novel is. I enjoyed it immensely and found it fun AND enlightening. You do not have to be interested in becoming a buddhist to enjoy this exciting, almost fairy tale-like novel.

Wow, the path to finding your true self within. If you have an open mind then this book is for you.

I rarely give five star reviews... usually the best I do is four. And I came at this skeptically because of the touchy feely repuation of the author. I was wrong. This is an absolutely incredible book.

I had trouble getting into this book but after I got into it I really enjoyed it. Not having any real knowledge of who Buddha was except that there was a religion based on his teachings I really liked that the author took what is known about Buddha and made it into a novel that was educational and interesting (I know that should have been one or two sentences but I've been taking down Christmas decorations and I'm tired). Obviously it's fiction so the book is not 100% true to his life but after researching more about Buddha after finishing the book I found that the author didn't really change to much.

Best telling of the Buddha story I've read. Read it while traveling through Thailand and it was perfect complement to what I was seeing and experiencing.

I attended Catholic school for thirteen years and, as a result, I'm not very religious. I also have never considered myself a particularly spiritual individual. This book, while a fictionalized account of the life of Siddhartha Gautama, made me really want to investigate Buddhism. Deepak Chopra, while not famed for being a novelist, demonstrates a compelling way with words. His prose feels heightened without being flowery or ornate. You can approach this book as a novel, a spiritual treatise, or a mix of both. You are in good hands with Chopra and the experience will move you.

I loved this book! I have only mediocre knowledge of the story of Buddha but always had a yearning to discover it. I was interested the entire way through and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great story. I had thought it would be focused on spirituality but Deepak Chopra does an excellent job of creating a story of it!

Very well written, good job Mr. Chopra! I feel as though I was beside Siddhartha, on his Journey to understanding himself and his Quest for "Nirvana/Buddha"! I will recommend this excellent read!

He did an unbelievably job at creating Buddha's life. Interesting, eye-opening at times, all around lovely job.

I enjoyed this book because it was the telling of a story. The reader met the characters and had the opportunity to like and dislike them. I felt I learned something without having Buddhism shoved down my throat. I would have given this 5 stars had the book ended with the story and references to seek more information rather than including the questions and answers which weren't a novel anymore.
