It must be read and experienced. Hesse was a talented writer who explored some of the pulsing questions of life. Siddhartha is probably the work to start with when reading Hesse (it's one of his most well-known), if not Demian or Steppenwolf before working up to The Glassbead Game. What makes this story so engaging (without sharing too much) is the way the ending reflects the beginning. This narrative arch marks this book as a masterwork and calls the reader to question long after reading.

Surely, many verses of the holy books, particularly in the Upanishades of Samaveda, spoke of this innermost and ultimate thing, wonderful verses.
