    " For years my favorite book, this Nobel winning author has weaved an intriguing tale of a young man in India and his childhood friend going two ways in winning their own spirituality. Through Sadhus, philosophers, boatmen, women, riches, and friendship he finds his way after years of searching. Look for a cameo by the venerable Buddha and the hero's dispassioned adventures in this Ben Hur parallel of Buddhism. "

    " While the writing in the book is not stellar (a bit choppy and lacking eloquence at points), the presentation of ideas from the Eastern philosophical perspective (mainly Buddhism) is informative and satisfying. I particularly enjoyed the idea that wisdom must be learned but cannot be taught as well as the focus on compassion, sympathy, love (maybe), and relieving suffering. Enlightenment is as transient as many other conditions in life and can be found in different approaches. A notable realization by the protagonist Siddhartha is that time does not exist - everything was, is, and will be. A stone is a stone, but it is also dirt, a tree, a human, even a god and should be appreciated as such. I would probably give it 4.5/5 for the less than perfect flow, but I'll round up to 5 since I really enjoyed the read. "

    " I really didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. But it's pretty great. I just don't see myself ever re-reading the book, because I am almost entirely certain I won't like it quite as much the next time: it's surprising and moving and small, which are some of things, according to me, that make it work so well. But that's just me... "
