I read this as a young person and re-read again many years later. Many years later, so much of it resonates and is clearer to me, similar to Sidd's own journey in the story.
I read this book for a school project and it was truly inspiring. It has opened my heart and soul to a whole new religion and many new ways of living. I loved this book.
I must admit it was hard to get into at first, I have a hard time with books in general and imagining the characters and whatnot but I'm sure not everyone is like that. Once I became immersed in the journey of Siddhartha I couldn't stop reading. This book is great and even more great to the one who reads it that applies what is learned to their own lives. I feel a mental clarity I didn't have before. Very eye opening and made me realize I have been living like all too many others and not thinking clearly. Enjoy
