The Monday Book Report Edition #12



I am linking up with 








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.

  2. Hope you get some reading time this week and enjoy your reading. I don't think I'd ever feel confident enough to try Siddhartha.

  3. I read Siddhartha back in high school and thought well of it. Which makes me want to read it again now *mumble mumble* years later!
