Siddharta è uno dei romanzi più famosi di Hermann Hesse, che lo scrisse nel 1922. Da allora questo testo di ambientazione indiana ha avuto una straordinaria fortuna presso i lettori, soprattutto giovani, che vedono nel protagonista il simbolo di chi è alla ricerca del significato dell'esistenza, non si ferma presso nessun maestro e segue vie proprie che alla fine lo conducono alla pace interiore di chi ha tutto visto e tutto superato, e che si esprime nel sorriso senza tempo del Buddha. Viene qui presentato in una nuova e più attuale traduzione di Paola Giovetti. Stupende le ambientazioni sonore di Riccardo Cimino. Ambientazioni sonore di Riccardo Cimino.

Listener Opinions

    " Listen to the voices of the river. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tami | 2/12/2014

    " I had to read this one my senior year of high school. Along with many other readings, I was probably too young to fully appreciate this book. I may have to try it again at some point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 2/11/2014

    " Defys explanation. Simply a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Fox | 2/6/2014

    " Some of the most beautiful prose I've ever read. One of the most layered and meaningful narratives I've ever experienced---at the same time simple and profound, clear but ambiguous, linear yet not quite so. I say all this even though my Christian faith is firm and I do not share Hesse's philosophical worldview or adhere to his meta-narrative (or lack thereof). So I part ways ultimately, but I recognize and appreciate this Hesse's aesthetic brilliance and philosophical heft. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/30/2014

    " The first time I read this, forty-five years ago, I thought it was unspeakably brilliant and I read all the rest of Hesse's novels in one big rush. I just read it again because an English class I'm observing is discussing it. This time I found it a little wordy, a little self-indulgent. The prose has that rigid quality that you often get with translations. As short as the book is, it's too long. Siddhartha warns his friend that words are inadequate, deleterious even, for expressing deep spiritual experience. This book proves the point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart Burgess | 1/21/2014

    " A great quest for wisdom and enlightenment through the eyes of Siddhartha. Many simple and some deeper lessons to be taken from this book. Wisdom can't be shared, it must be individually found. A good Sunday afternoon read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 1/18/2014

    " wonderful. this has been on my bookshelf for like 5 years now...so glad I decided to pull it down and give it a shot today! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Radha | 1/18/2014

    " The book was hard to read, but It had a lot of deep meanings and good quotes, which I enjoyed. I think the questions I had to answer for the book made me like the book even less. It definitely wasn't my favorite book to read, but nonetheless it was somewhat interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 1/17/2014

    " This is an amazingly powerful, yet simple book. It felt like "The Prophet" with a significantly more substantial narrative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 1/16/2014

    " "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyanka | 1/9/2014

    " 'It is good to experience directly for oneself what one has to understand.' Holds true for this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda Fort | 1/1/2014

    " Had to read it for school. Don't remember much about it other than it was noting as hell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie Brown | 7/13/2013

    " Occasionally over my head, but thought provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Burgan | 3/1/2013

    " I re-read this book about every 10 years. It always brings new insights into my own personal growth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Potocar | 11/25/2012

    " This is one of those books that gets into your head and never leaves. Written in a style that's fast and easy to read, it's a beautiful journey of one man to his inner peace and harmony with the world. "

    " just reread siddhartha again. i liked it better when i was younger, but find it far more true now that i'm older. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saugat | 5/13/2011

    " A story about Siddhartha's spiritual journey to find the truth and in the process himself. The enthralling journey takes him to saints, merchants, courtesan, ferryman, etc. With each acquaintance he learnt something which took him near to the truth. Short and concise novel and a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darla | 5/12/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book, but I don't have time to do a full review. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chanel | 5/9/2011

    " I had to read this book for English class. I thought it was very boring and Herman Hesse's style of writing was boring also. No reason to read this book unless you're forced to! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 5/9/2011

    " The last 12th chapter was beautifully written. Simple and expertly told, of a subject that would be difficult to relate. "
