Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

Posted: January 15, 2008 in Uncategorized

This wasn’t life altering, but was very beautiful. I have a deep respect for eastern religions that focus more on life rather than afterlife. I read a new translation by Rika Lesser who tried to make the story more poetic because Hesse considered intended for Siddhartha to be a poem. Someday I may read it aloud just as she recommended. I highly recommend this book.
