It must be read and experienced. Hesse was a talented writer who explored some of the pulsing questions of life.

It must be read and experienced. Siddhartha is probably the work to start with when reading Hesse (it's one of his most well-known), if not Demian or Steppenwolf before working up to The Glassbead Game. What makes this story so engaging (without sharing too much) is the way the ending reflects the beginning. This narrative arch marks this book as a masterwork and calls the reader to question long after reading.

Hermann Hesse is counted among the leading thinkers of the 20th century, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1946. Pico Iyer is an essayist and novelist whose books include The Man Within My Head and The Open Road.

I thought this was a lovely edition, solid, built to last, and containing a little ribbon to mark one's place. I agree with the other reader, that $30 is a lot to pay for a small book like this, but I got a used copy in almost new condition for just a few dollars. It is a welcome change from the cheap copies that quickly fall apart....thus is a very welcome addition to our library.

I was very excited to see this new edition of Siddhartha and I immediately purchased it. Unfortunately, upon receiving it, I found that this book had gone the way of so many new books these days in the age of eBook readers and Kindles. Books now seem to be made as cheaply as possible, while still being expensive to purchase. While this edition has an extensive and informative introduction with many rare photos of Hesse, it is so cheaply made that I am afraid to read it. The pages are poorly glued and very stiff. I would expect that the book would fall apart after one reading. I dare not open the book too often in fear that the binding will crack. Also, the quality of the photos is terrible. They look like cheap photo copies done on a machine badly in need of toner! This is unacceptable for a book who's original price is $30! I will be returning the book immediately (before it falls apart). Unfortunately, most books today are made to be read once and then recycled.

A simple, universal story of searching for the macro and micro meaning of human life. In the hands of a lesser author this could have been one giant cliche but it is Hesse and he was no slack author. While often combined with Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist I find this to be a far better story without an attempt to make universal promises that do not consider the uniqueness of each individual and their unique individual life.

I am so pleased to have this volume with its excellent introduction on the life of Hesse, complete with interesting photos.

The book, one of a limited run of 1000, is not at all cheaply made. The imprint is on quality paper, though indeed it is an imprint and not a fresh printing as one would expect in an anniversary special edition (otherwise, 5 stars).

The ribbon marker is sufficient and the cover boards soli, the binding tight. The pages are not poorly glued and the book opens quite well.

I paid less than 20./New
