This is a very interesting book about the Steppenwolf, a man who believes himself to be half Harry and half wolf.It is a gripping story filled with unexpected strange incidents and fantastic characters.

So, I haven'y posted any reviews lately or in awhile. I hope to change this. I'm putting this out there just so my fellow booklikers know I'd like to start being more active on here. I couldn't believe my last review was in March! Anyway, I read Steppenwolf and had so much to say about it...I act...

Well, here we have it. Profound and very moving, a stirring glimpse into a struggling psyche. Some fantastic moments - some of the best in all German literature.

Nisam imao mogućnosti da proverim istinitost doživljaja o kojima Haler priča. Ne sumnjam da su oni većim delom izmišljeni, ali to nije namerno izmišljanje, već pokušaj da se duboko proživljena unutrašnja zbivanja zaodenu ruhom vidljivih događaja.

28/1 - The opening chapter, the 'editor's note', was quite interesting, but now that we've moved on to Haller's words I'm bored to sleep (as opposed to tears).

Steppenwolf came to me by way of a friend's dramatic drunken recommendation during a night at my very favorite bar. Passionately he insisted I read it and then, when perhaps I didn't seem interested enough, he proceeded to tell me all about it in the way that drunk folks do, by which I mean incoher...

For such a small book this took me awhile to read as it really wasn't the book I expected it to be. After reading Hesse's Siddartha I was expecting more of a spiritual journey and instead I got a some pretty deep probing of self awareness that takes on the subject of intellectualism. It was also a s...

Some books seem to belong to youth and need to be reintroduced as we age. Kurt Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury were regular companions of mine in high school, yet still hold my interest 30 years later. Alas, the same cannot be said for another companion, Nobel-prize winning writer Herman Hesse.Rereading S...

The music came later: http://youtu.be/rMbATaj7Il8Important entry in terms of existential history, and it did keep me to the end; unhappily it wasn't of the calibre of the Glass Bead Game but luckily it was short. 4* The Glass Bead GameTR Narcissus and Goldmund3* Steppenwolf
