This is the kind of book that people say they like because they're too afraid to admit they don't understand its spiritual mumbo jumbo. First off I thought this book was going to be about the Buddha not some random sinful man who coincidentally shares the same name!
Siddhartha is a patronizing, stuck-up, heartless young brahmin who believes that he's pretty much superior to everyone else around him, despite that fact that his only skills are the ability to "think, pray, and fast" which let's face ...more
Λίγο με απώθησε στην αρχή, αλλά στη συνέχεια αποκτά ενδιαφέρον. Μεταφέρει κάποια μηνύματα ή μάλλον διδαχες που σε βάζουν σε σκέψεις. Γλυκό παραμυθάκι με ένα βαθύτερο νόημα!!
«Τη γνώση μπορεί να τη μεταδώσει κανείς, την σοφία όμως όχι».
«Παιδιά είναι οι άνθρωποι.»
Αυτό το βιβλίο με συγκλόνισε!
By the latter part of the 19th Century, the colonial spread of European powers across the world was in full swing. The British ruled India and Australia and had gone to war with China to force opium on the population. Africa, South America, and the Philippines had been portioned out for Western rule and control of resources.

My apologies if this review reeks of "GUSHness." However, it gave me that ONE-OF-A-KIND reading experience that doesn't come along often and so I think it is certainly worthy of the praise I shall heep upon it. Beautifully written and a deeply personal story, Hesse has created the ultimate expression of the journey of self-discovery.
The book details the story of Siddhartha, the young and brilliant son of a Brahmin in ancient India. The Brahmin are the uber revered caste comprised of poets, pri ...more
If I could turn back time*or perhaps pass through some portal which brings me face-to-face with my 14-year-old self, there are so many books I would recommend to little me, grabbing my shoulders to shake my malnourished frame and insisting that I get to reading them as soon as effin possible instead of waiting until I'm too old and cynical and hyper-critical to appreciate and relate to what they have to say. If this ever is/was the case, this time-warp, today I would probably see a lot more nove ...more
Siddhartha rejects his life as a Brahman's son and goes out into the world in a quest for enlightenment, to live as an ascetic. After meeting Buddha, Siddhartha rejects the ascetic life for a more material one, the life of a merchant, learning the ways of love from a courtesan, and in time leaves that life behind as well. Will Siddhartha ever find what he is looking for?
Normally, a Nobel prize winning book wouldn't get a second look from me. I'm more into people getting pistol whipped and big mo ...more
هنری میلر درباره این کتاب میگوید: سیدارتا داروی شفابخشی است که از انجیل عهد جدید مؤثرتر است
باید اعتراف کنم که سیدارتها مرا هم شفا داد
و یک اعتراف دیگر اینکه،هروقت این ریویوی پایینی را می بینم از خودم شاکی می شوم
چون خیلی ناقصه
