Siddhartha is a philosophical book by Herman Hesse that is centered around the rise of Buddhism. It follows Siddhartha on his search for enlightenment and the benefits of teachers. I think that Hesse brings up important topics and there is a lot to discuss from this book. However I find Siddhartha as a character to be obnoxious, self-centered, and rude which makes it hard to enjoy a book with a main character that you don’t enjoy.
