In Siddhartha, Herman Hesse conveys a very profound message for all those who seek meaning in their lives. Though set in India, the concerns of Siddhartha are universal, expressing Hesse's general interest in the conflict between mind, body, and spirit. It is a story of a Brahmin boy who follows his heart and ventures out into the world to experience life as a pious Brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover, and ordinary ferryman to a father - each life bringing a new awakening, bringing him closer to the truth until he is finally one with Buddha.

Excellent insightful story. Well written and good character development. Wish I had discovered it years ago. Thanks to Tim Ferriss I finally did.
"still entirely relevant and always will be."
Hesse a master of his art. conveys universal truths, awe inspiring. I read this book again after 30 years and was blown away again
"Outstanding audiobook (author+narrator)"
Story's reviews are available in many resources, so I'll focus on the narrator. He has a really soothing voice and an excellent command of it. The toning, emphasizing and volume changes per context were all in place and outstanding. I hope I can get more books he has read.
