In the novel, Siddhartha, a young man, leaves his family for a contemplative life, then, restless, discards it for one of the flesh. He conceives a son, but bored and sickened by lust and greed, moves on again. Near despair, Siddhartha comes to a river where he hears a unique sound. This sound signals the true beginning of his life--the beginning of suffering, rejection, peace and, finally, wisdom.

i'm glad i HAD to read this book for philosophy class. I'd tried to read it once before and got bored with it. but after i read it twice for class, i found it one of the most beautiful and moving books i've ever read.

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.
