Siddartha by Herman Hesse


Finished reading "SIDDHARTHA" by Herman Hesse. 


Thanks to @poor_bjorns_notes_to_self. His review pushed me to pick this book. And also thanks to Harimohan for suggesting me this!

There are few books which can be enjoyed depending upon the knowledge of reader rather than the content of the book.

This book is a classic. It can be enlightening as well as misleading. It all depends upon what you wish to take. 
Nothing can be stated as better as Gary's words on this book "This books is a scripture posing as literature and is a best read after getting what you thought you wanted." Herman Hesse was brilliant in weaving a story along the stuff he wanted to say. Brilliant writing indeed!

Do not try to read if you don't like contemplating or not prepared for lot of contemplation.

My favourite quotes are,

📝"I see value and meaning in each of it's fine markings and cavities"

📝"The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish"
