emotional reflective medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No
Siddhartha is a novel that may convince you the mind is a superpower. Ironically, his namesake becomes Godlike when he masters introspection over salvation. Originally, one of my childhood friends gave me a copy of this little book as a teenager. I hadn't read it until now (albeit a library copy), but it was well worth the wait.
