It was a brilliant piece written by a brilliantly eccentric sort of fellow. His outlook on life, if you'd noticed, seemed to even change as he was writing it. As if writing the book itself helped him to come to the conclusions on "Atmen" or inner-peace and harmony with nature's accord he infact reached. Insofar as the piece was written more for hisself than the reader; and the reader in turn found it just as enlightening, coming to their own realizations in their own particular way. None exactly the same as another's, as Siddhartha took a different path than Buddha. And perhaps that's also the point of it all, and why it works so well. And why reading it is almost a spiritual experience all of it's own.<br><br> Hermann Hesse didn't write Siddhartha. Siddhartha helped to write Hermann Hesse, and Siddhartha to helped write Julien Saunders.
