To my great pleasure, Hermann Hesse delivers, and more. I was not fully captivated by the novel until the last four chapters (starting with "The River"). I love how Hesse chronicles the stages of life that Siddhartha undergoes and the purity that revolves around the spiritual individuals he encounters. And at times, I felt an embarrassing resemblance to Siddhartha's son.
This novel, at its barest minimum, leaves the reader pondering of what it means to live his/her own life. I look forward to rereading Siddhartha multiple times in different stages of my life.
So I read Siddhartha. Again. As a designer and as a theologian, despite being very much into symbol, meaning, sign, and word, I still don't quite get the profound import of this book. I clearly remember my German Professor's "I am humanist" declarations; I also recall a friend telling me how much she'd enjoyed reading Siddhartha in English, and envied that I'd read it in German. I fully expected being a few years older would increase my appreciation, but it didn't. However, I'm still happy to own this digital edition, and I encourage you to read Siddhartha for yourself, in either a good translation or in Hermann Hesse's original German.
