  1. I’ve read Siddartha in school and then again for my Chris Evans reading experiment, because it’s one of his favorites, and the book still holds up. I have to say that I read it in German, so that was a bit of a struggle, since I read so rarely in my primary language, but I’m glad to have revisited it. I really enjoyed reading your thoughts on it. Such a great review!

    1. I’m definitely envious that you get to read it in its original language! I think you did the same with Steppenwolfe too, if I remember correctly. It’s also so cool that we have this read in common! Thank you so much for reading my review, Kat! I appreciate it a lot. 😀

  2. I picked up an ebook of this one a number of years ago. I wasn’t too familiar with the book but I’d heard of the author and I knew it was a classic of sorts so wanted to try it. I’m pleased to see you enjoyed it and I still look forward to trying it.

    1. So far, both Steppenwolfe and Siddhartha worked quite well in English, with the editions I had but I wouldn’t be able to say if there are better translations out there. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if Polish editions do a better job at capturing the essence of his writing hahah
