Siddhartha - Hermann Hesse, Hilda Rosner
Siddhartha is a character that portrays the initiate in his early stages of development, immersed in life, yet desiring the ultimate knowledge
The book is about the process experienced on the road to enlightenment. 
Based on the lives of Gotama Buddha the book describes the journey of Siddhartha as he looks for the meaning of life, hoping to achieve a greater state of being known as nirvana.
The book shows that  Knowledge that can be taught, but not wisdom.
Siddhartha can be  the tale of every human that begins the journey toward understanding. 
A very good read. .
