What an incredibly amateurish piece of literature. The characters, the plot, the writing - just everything seems rather haphazardly thrown together.
For all the confused people: this is not a story on the perhaps most widely known Siddhartha, the Buddha.
This is another person with the same name. Gautama in the story is the Siddhartha y'all are talking about.
This is not so much a story as a historical narration (fictional, of course), and as such it fails to have any real drive to it. Worth a read, but keep expectations low.
This is just another old-time adventure story. Unfortunately, I found this one so boring that I gave up after two chapters.
Ugh - this is horrible. You know when you have black slaves in a space adventure something just ain't right.
If this story makes any sense to you - *any* sense whatsoever - you are a better person than I.
I don't consider anyone who resorts to excessive use of foul language to be a writer. When potty mouth began, I bailed.
Another ancient adventure-type story. Bored me out of my skull. Bailed after skimming a few chapters.
One of the most charming books I've ever read.
