D. Ogan’s book reviews

Probably one of the greatest story you can read. Its language simple yet thoughts provoked profound.

Hesse captured an essence of Buddhism in a mortal's quest for salvation. Taking a leaf from Buddha's life and philosophy, the character Siddhartha's worldly odyssey led eventually to his spiritual discernment of reality, the nature of life and true happiness.

The English version is flawless. Unruffled reading with subtle imageries. Inspirational.
