Fantastic

Great story and the narrator makes it even more awesome. He reads it with his soul.

Not Authentic Pronounciation
Reviewer Jadevi
 July 16, 2010
I just listened to the sample, and the narrator does not pronounce the Indian names and terms as an Indian would. I would rather hear an Indian relay this story, and found one: the story told by Harish Bhimani, which I saw on audible.com. If you don't care about that, then it's fine, but I know the Indian pronounciation, so it makes a difference.

Siddartha

Great Novel on Buddhism
Reviewer LOLDavid
 February 17, 2006
I breezed through this audio book, which tells in straight forward language the story of Siddartha. I had assumed it was a fictional retelling of the life of the Buddha. Not so. Siddartha lives at the time of the Buddha but he's more of an every man character who goes through a number of stages in his life before reaching enlightenment. Hesse's language (translated here from German) is very simple and accessible. Many of the concepts of Buddhism and Hinduism are demonstrated in this novel. So it's more of an entertaining way of learning about these religions. The narration here is top notch and it was a very easy listen.
