I came, I rummaged, I was weak-willed and took a book.

Failed to finish this book in time to release it at the London meetup, as I was distracted by 2 new books ( I currently have 10 books insome sort-of state of being read). Am aiming to release it at the Ipswich meetup on Saturday.

I have my first Hesse (Steppenwolf) to-be-read. This looks interesting, and I have recently heard about Siddharta from a couple of sources...so a timely find at today's Ipswich meet-up

(21/04) The blurb says, 'Hermann Hesses's greates novel', although I think Steppenwolf must be much more popular and influential?

This novella does for Eastern religions and spirituality what Steppenwolf did for a more Western secular and materialistic society; in that it follows a life-long journey to find the ultimate answers to life, the universe and everything! In the case of Siddhartha, he starts as a high-born Brahmin, experiments with various lifestyles such as academic, ascetist, sensualist, merchant/materialist, and eventually finds peace with nature and an unconditional love and sense of tolerance & belonging. Along the way Siddhartha meets up with the Buddha Gotama ('the' Buddha?)...I must learn more about Buddhism as i'm going on holiday to Nepal later this year :)

An interesting little book, although i've ready better books of the type, such as Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, Ishmael, even Candide. Thank you for sharing 'becca.

Still slightly scarred by reading a Hesse book for A-Level, but am going to try this one. Picked up at the meetup.
Interesting book, leaving me with things to think about. The search for a man's own destiny, the meaning for his life.

Going to put this into my Asia-themed Bookbox and will look out for Steppenwolf.

Journal Entry 11 by Tubereader from Madrid, Madrid Spain on Friday, December 05, 2008
Just realised that I never "caught" this book out of the Asian bookbox. My apologies!

I picked it up because it it on the 1001 list.

Journal Entry 12 by Tubereader from Madrid, Madrid Spain on Sunday, December 07, 2008
I have read this book in one day. It is an interesting one, specially because it was written by a German at the beginning of the 20th century. The long path followed by Siddhartha in order to find himself is very interesting. In particular, to see how a young man so interested in finding his way ends up living in town, working as a merchant and enjoying the pleasures of life. It is good to see that, at the end of the book, he comes back to his roots.

Despite being a quick read, I enjoyed the book.

I am reserving it to include it in a bookbox that I will put together in the future with books from the 1001 books you must read before you die list.

This book has arrived safe and sound. I'll read it as soon as i can and release to another 1001 library member. thanks for sharing!

Journal Entry 18 by shovelmonkey1 from Penge, Greater London United Kingdom on Thursday, December 03, 2009
Well i had a pleasant journey following Siddhartha on his road to enlightenment. I enjoyed the idea of capturing the idea of self and finding peace in being who you are. Sometimes i found my attention straying a little while reading but i think that is just because of the way it is written (and i'm tired!).

Now available to a good home upon request, 1001 library members only though.

Even though this book is quite short, it takes a long time to understand it and even now I know I did get half of it.
A very interesting and enlightening read.
