Hesse's ability to character-develop really soars with this work. Wasn't sure I could like anything better than his famous "Siddartha" but this equals it at least.

Steppenwolf is a slightly disturbing story of a killer obsessed by olfactory sensations, particularly scents of women. The main character can be hard to identify with but is pitiful in many regards. I definitely recommend it to mature readers.
