Hermann Hesse’s famous and influential novel Siddhartha is perhaps the most important and compelling allegory produced in the last hundred years. Integrating Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with psychoanalysis and philosophy, this strangely simple tale, written with a deep and moving empathy for humanity, has touched the lives of millions since its original publication in 1922.

Set in India, Siddhartha is the story of a young Brahmin’s search for ultimate reality after meeting with the Buddha. His quest takes him from a life of decadence to asceticism, through the illusory joys of sensual love with a beautiful courtesan and of wealth and fame to the painful struggles with his son and the ultimate wisdom of renunciation.

    " A little book, a mere 122 pages long but packed with so much wisdom. "

    " Clearly a badly translated book. The spiritual aspect of the book does leave lingering thoughts, though I am definitely nowhere more enlightened than when I first started the book. May be worth a second read if the bad english doesn't put me off too much.... "

    " I don't mean to sound like a greasy hippy but this was fun to read. Short, bursty, and wise. "

    " I am not surprised to hear this book was and continues to be influential. It teaches a very important lesson: wisdom cannot be communicated. I loved it. "
