S0 - I haven't read a word this week. I need to remedy this immediately!! However, I was named the Clubber of the Month for The Classics Club! That was so awesome! You can read the post HERE. Learn more about The Classics Club HERE.
I am starting "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse tonight. I began reading it once but for some reason put it down, so I will be restarting it tonight!
Written in a prose of almost biblical simplicity and beauty, it is the story of a soul's long quest in search of he ultimate answer to the enigma of man's role on this earth. As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha but cannot be content with a disciple's role: he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubt—a tortuous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love affair with the beautiful courtesan Kamala, the temptation of success and riches, the heartache of struggle with his own son, to final renunciation and self-knowledge.
