The Journey To The East (Book Review)

Funny, engaging, can read in one sitting. Author Herman Hesse seems to be poking fun of himself in this book, with the main character, H.H., determined to write a novel about an enlightenment, but unable to realize his own blindness to the world’s answers. The author of Steppenwolf and Siddhartha, I have never read a book by Hesse that didn’t inspire deep introspection and the beautiful horror of the present moment.
