    I read this book on a twenty four hour train journey surrounded by the bourgeois It was a terrifying experience The book didn t change my life and was not meant to, but it gave me hope and hope is always a good thing The influence of Indian spirituality on this book is apparent, but Hesse chooses to dissect it using the prism of Western pessimism He talks about the multiplicity of the self and the infinite potential associated with it, how we often choose to attach fanciful restrictions to t

    Hermann Hesse s words are timeless Here they represent an entire disaffected generation, a generation who is on the cusp of radical change but still partly exists in the old world They are out of space and out of time they are lost within themselves However, such things can aptly be applied to a number of individuals across the ages And, for me, this is what made the novel so great Through these pages Hesse evokes a character I have seen many times before across literature, but never befor

    Likely the dumbest Important Book that I ve read.Yeah, it s cool that the narrator thinks he s a werewolf, but is really just a recluse pseudo academic and then reads a manuscript that describes fake werewolves and outs them as poseurs Cool, also, that the preface, by the manuscript s fictional finder and publisher, records the impression that the horrors of the middle ages were non existent A man of the Middle Ages would detest the whole mode of our present day life as something far th
