What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Our lives must exist in the spiritual as well as the physical world, according to Hesse.  This book takes that theme to an extreme, but it is an interesting idea worthy of your time.”

Ethan: “Siddhartha was the first work of fiction I read that detailed Eastern religious thought. Although, I come form a different culture than the novel’s protagonist, the themes of self discovery and purpose stills resonated with me.”
