Professional reviews

"Herman Hesse's novel chronicles one man's search for enlightenment in the age of the historical Buddha. The novel's action is as internal as it is external, and we're drawn, no doubt by the echo of our own longing, into Siddhartha's restlessness and his determined pursuit of a spiritual path. The narrator, English-born James Langton, offers a measured, unhurried reading that's an effective rendering of the spare, lyrical prose Hesse crafted for this quiet novel. One quirk dimmed the experience for this listener: Langton gives an atypical twist to the protagonist's name, trilling what sounds like an extra "r" in the final syllable. It may have been a reach for authenticity, but it comes across as an affectation and clouds the transparency of the reading. M.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
