Let's discuss Hesse's timeless classic! The reflection of the main character in this fictional tale forces the reader to reflect as well. If nothing else, you will read an incredibly-written story and regain an appreciation for NOW.

In the novel, Siddhartha, a young man, leaves his family for a contemplative life, then, restless, discards it for one of the flesh. He conceives a son, but bored and sickened by lust and greed, moves on again. Near despair, Siddhartha comes to a river where he hears a unique sound. This sound signals the true beginning of his life -- the beginning of suffering, rejection, peace, and, finally, wisdom.

PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that you finish reading the book before joining the discussion so you can participate and engage fully.
