    "This fiction book about spirituality, Siddhartha, was very difficult to understand due to the poor translation. I looked forward to reading it but really did not enjoy it due to the poor translation. I guess it would have been better if someone read it to me! "

    "Are you interested in best Buddhist fictional stories? Make sure you check out "Siddartha" by Hermann Hesse. This fulfilling novel tells the story of the quest of Siddhartha, a wealthy Indian Brahmin who casts off a life of privilege and comfort to seek spiritual fulfillment and wisdom."

    "Siddhartha may be fiction, but it is so real too. I enjoyed reading about the enlightenment experienced, and I was able to take a lot of those things and apply them to my own life. That is pretty good when a work of fiction can make you do that!"

    " Though set in a place and time far removed from the Germany of 1922, the year of the book’s debut, the novel is infused with the sensibilities of Hermann Hesse’s time, synthesizing disparate philosophies–Eastern religions, Jungian archetypes, Western individualism–into a unique vision of life as expressed through one man’s search for meaning. It is the story of the quest of Siddhartha, a wealthy Indian Brahmin who casts off a life of privilege and comfort to seek spiritual fulfillment and wisdom. On his journey, Siddhartha encounters wandering ascetics, Buddhist monks, and successful merchants, as well as a courtesan named Kamala and a simple ferryman who has attained enlightenment. Traveling among these people and experiencing life’s vital passages–love, work, friendship, and fatherhood–Siddhartha discovers that true knowledge is guided from within."

    "Siddhartha is a classic title that takes place in Germany of 1922, following a wealthy India Brahmin who seeks spiritual fulfillment and wisdom. It's a great book if you're into historical spirituality and although it's not a very long book, it is still an interesting read to learn about old times."

    ""Siddhartha" has long been a very popular graduation gift, and for good reason. It tells the story of a young man who leaves his family, moving between contemplation and lust, suffering and peace, and rejection and wisdom. It is thought-provoking and a modern classic in the world of philosophical literature. It's not a light read, but it is worth the effort."

    "I didn't know what to expect when I first picked this book up but I was really impressed. It has tones of philosophy and creates a world of its on based on Eastern religions, and western individualism all through the story of one man. Its very inspiring and worth checking out."

    "I enjoyed how the book incorporates the journey of life, focusing on how sometimes events that may seem like the end of the world are actually just a stepping stone. It is a beautifully written work that makes sense of a lot of things that trouble us daily. I found it to be incredibly impactful, and I look forward to rereading it several times."
