Set in India, this is the story of Siddharta who set out on a spiritual journey. After meeting Buddha, Siddharta pressed on to seek hiw own destiny other than being a follower of Buddha. I enjoyed reading this book for its simplicity of style in the treatment of so complex a topic as the quest for self-knowledge.

Siddhartha was for me the kind of book that provided soul refreshment in small chunks...perfect for reading a short, self-contained chapter in a rare moment of solitude that leads to reflection and meditation...and many moments of, "I can relate to that!"

Full of sensory images and rich description. Kind of stalls in some point. It can be dubbed as a self-help book, which I don't like, but subtly enough to be enjoyable as the classic it is.

Wonderful, quiet story. Quick read, too!
