I feel that the book Into the Wild is very similar but different to Siddhartha. They are both classic books that are connected to the path you take throughout your life. However, they have different outcomes. Were, Siddhartha goes through many religions, whereas the main character in Into the Wild passes away.
This website compares the main character in the book to before Buddhism. It is very helpful because it goes into detail about Siddhartha's early years and who his parents were. I feel that the book is not very descriptive and I did not understand what had happened but with this website, I understand fully where he had come from. People reading this book should read this article because it is a good backstory before you begin the novel.
This website is also easy to understand because it is very brief. I think that readings are easier when they are straight to the point. It discusses all of the characters and main events. I also find it helpful that you can pick out different chapters in case you did not catch on to a certain one. That way, you can go back to the book later, and move on to the next chapter. One point that was discussed in this website was how Siddhartha moves in with a new family and how he adapts very quickly. I think that this was important to include because it is a main turning point in the book.
This website is very helpful because it includes flashcards that you can review to ensure that you know all the facts of the book. It also shows how many characters there are, the theme, setting, genre, and even the point of view. This is a very helpful website because it breaks down all the information into little sections so that you can understand it better.
This website explains who Herman Hesse is (the Siddhartha author). It explains how he is unlike many authors, and I can agree with this because this novel is a rare book that many people can connect to. I can also connect to this website for the reason that it mentions all that Herman goes through, especially throughout his early years. This could be a reason that the main theme is finding himself, because he is attaching it to what he had experienced .
