The book, Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, is about the life of a young man named Siddartha who is trying to find enlightenment, which is the true meaning of life and having peace. Siddartha sets out on his journey as a young man, and the story ends with him being old. Throughout the story, he goes through a lot of hardships and struggles. He tries many different things in search of his enlightenment, like meditating and doing a lot of holy actions.. Siddartha has many wise words and smart and good deeded actions said and done in his search.
What I liked about this book is that it has a lot of words and actions that the reader can also relate to and do that will help in life. It teaches things like the value of personality and people rather than things. It also teaches that fancy things and being rich isn’t everything. Another thing I liked about this book is that it has a quick paced storyline, in which Siddartha doesn’t spend so long in each scenario for a very long time. At the same time, Siddartha doesn’t move through the story super fast either. What I disliked about the book is that all the scenarios that Siddartha has are very similar to the last one that he just was in, in his journey to enlightenment.
