    1. Star-ratings are funny little things.* At the risk of putting words into your collective binary mouth, let me tell you how it goes with a (for loss of a better word) "good" bookyou know, one that you finish all too quickly and must lick your fingers and frantically flip back several pages in order to absorb the end once more, this time wholly, slowly, meditatively. At last accepting that you have experienced the novel's final message, that final flash of imagery both resolute and interpretively [...]

    2. I'm going to read this book, so maybe I can understand what the hell is going on with BTS's new teasers.Look what you've done to me BigHit! Look!

    3. Hermann Hesse's Demian influenced me more than just about any book although I haven't read the novel in twenty years. Through my late teens and early twenties I searched out every Hesse book I could find, including the rarities, journals, letters, etc going as far as to ferret out European editions in a Berlin bookstore on a solo trip as much influenced by Hesse as cheap airfare. My initial college experiences (three institutions in six semesters) ended badly. I became depressed and, although I [...]

    4. I wanted only to try to live in accord with the promptings which came from my true self. Why was that so very difficult? This quote stands alone on the very first page of the novel, and it tells you all you need to know. I loved this book. I want to make you love it. I sit here at this keyboard and try to write, yet after reading this exquisite novel, everything I have to say sounds trite. I type. I delete. Type some more. Delete. Nothing I say is adequate. I feel like I live inside Hermann Hess [...]

    6. "But every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again. That is why every man's story is important, eternal, sacred; that is why every man, as long as he lives and fulfills the will of nature, is wondrous, and worthy of every consideration."It's quite timely that I read this one so soon after reading Zweig's tale ( Burning Secret ) about a [...]

    7. i am so glad i give authors three books to make me love them. this was hesses last chance to woo me, and he really almost got a five-star valentine from me, but we will call it a four and a half - must be a little coy, after all. this is a book that i would love to go back in time and give myself upon graduating from high school. i would love to know whether it would have made me more or less insufferable than i am now. because i could see it going either way, at seventeen. i could see myself ta [...]

    8. قرأت حول هرمان هسه في كتاب اللامنتمي، وقرأت عن اللامنتمي في كتاب العالميّة الإسلاميّة الثّانية، هكذا قادني القدر إلى دميان وسنكلير، لكن لماذا الرّواية الّتي كان بطلها سنملير تعنون باسم دميان ؟سنكلير يرمز إلى هسه الباحث عن نفسه، كما يعبّر في بداية كتابه: " لم أكن أريد إلاّ أ [...]

    9. دوستانِ گرانقدر، این کتاب از 239 صفحه تشکیل شده است داستان در مورد خاطراتِ زندگیِ پسربچه ای به نام «سینکلر» است که از زبانِ خودش بیان می شوداین پسر بچه در خانواده ای مذهبی و البته اصیل و پولدار، همراه با خواهرانش بزرگ شده است و رفتارِ آرام و مودبانه ای دارد و البته گوشه گیر نیز م [...]

    10. _Demian_I read this on a whim, i've read steppenwolf last year and even though i believe it's a great book, i somehow felt distant to it. But with this one Hesse gave to me all the things that i was hoping for. Deep, beautiful and tender. The story is equal to the writing the the writing to the story, everything about this book feels amazing. It's summer and i am busy and too lazy to write a proper review, but i loved it and please give it a try. Be well folks and have a great August <3

    11. بعد اعجوبه و سیدراتها و بازگشت زرتشت این چهارمین کتابی هست که از هرمان هسه میخوانمهرمان هسه شخصیتی خودساخته داشته و همیشه در پی کشف وجود و منیت خود بودهاو قهرمانانش را پس از یاد گرفتن راه رفتن،از هر معلم و آموزگاری رها میکند تا خود به سوی شناختن پیش بروندوی بزرگترین مذهب رو در [...]

    12. So Hesse has the ability to capture your attention with an extremely captivating, interesting and promising start only to manage to lose you somewhere in the middle and as for the ending he'll either leave you mesmerized or disappointed I supposeThe thing is that I couldn't relate after a certain point and trust me I had every kind intention to love this book since I loved Steppenwolf, but Demian was nothing like it. Neither in regards to the prose nor the theme or context.

    13. The things I do for BTSJoking, this was one of the few books that really had an impact on my way of thinking. It talked about religion, belief and growth in a very profound way, as if Hesse wasn't really writing but more conversing directly with my mind.Sinclair and Demian, though being very peculiar and surreal characters, were one the mirror of the other, surrounded by a plot heavy with symbolism and magical elements.The idea of the two worlds, one so close to the other that you could esily sl [...]

    14. Ugh. I forced myself to finish this short book and, in the end, felt it wasn't worth the trouble. I picked it up because I loved Siddhartha so much (though it's been years since I read it and now I wonder if it it will hold up). I found Demian terribly melodramatic and over-wrought and I could never really begin to care much about Sinclair and all his angst-ridden inner turmoil. There were a few interesting and lovely passages -- only a couple of times did I feel a thrill of poetry in the langua [...]

    15. I will try not to be emotional and write an “objective” review, even though Hermann Hesse’s Demian moved me beyond words and explanations. Maybe because its serene tone and unaggressive intellectualism have a mesmerizing quality, or maybe because, just like Siddhartha some years later, it does not try to challenge or convince you. Or maybe because of the open-minded way in which it sees the world, it tells its story, it reveals its truth. And last but not least maybe because of the beautif [...]

    16. Demian lucky people are who are so inclined to constantly be searching as are the characters in this book! How much they discover, how many emotions they feel, how incredibly inspiring they are. I loved this book because I love passionate people.

    17. "Die Welt, wie sie jetzt ist, will sterben, sie will zugrundegehen, und sie wird es."Über H. Hesse:Der Dichter kam 1977 in Calw zur Welt. Er sonnte sich in der Geborgenheit der Familie, gleichzeitig spürte er aber auch die Sehnsucht nach der Ferne. Schon als 13-jähriger fasste er den unverrückbaren Entschluss, "entweder Dichter zu werden oder gar nichts"DEMIAN schrieb er im Alter von 40 Jahren in wenigen Monaten. Darin spiegelt sich die Suche nach seimem ureigenen Wesen. "Ich wollte ja nicht [...]

    18. Nel 1917 Hermann Hesse, durante il ricovero in un sanatorio di Lucerna per riprendersi da una grave crisi nervosa, in pochi mesi scrisse Demian, pubblicato con lo pseudonimo di Emil Sinclair nel 1919. La nona edizione del libro, quando ormai le indiscrezioni avevano condotto fino a lui, uscì col vero nome dello scrittore.Demian. Storia di una giovinezza. Storia del giovane Emil Sinclair in conflitto fra il mondo chiaro governato da bene e costumanza, e quello tenebroso, regno del proibito e del [...]

    19. هرمان هسه در مقدمه‌ی کتابش می‌گه:من نمی‌توانم خود را دانا بنامم. من جوینده‌ای بوده‌ام و باز هم خواهم بود؛ ولی دیگر در ستارگان و کتاب‌ها نمی‌جویم، بلکه به آنچه در خونم می‌جوشد گوش فرا داده‌ام. داستانم برای خواندن مطبوع نیست؛ مانند داستان‌های ساختگی شیرین و گیرا نیست. داس [...]

    20. Nutshell: dude goes to school, grover-dills around town with various people, and finally goes off to war, either WWI or a predicted WWII. Along the way, some amusing readings of biblical events, delivered by Demian, the obscure object of desire in the story, regarding Golgotha (51) and Cain (23-24), the latter of which notes that "the first element of the story, its actual beginning, is the mark." The "Mark of Cain" is a metaphor that stays with the narrator the entire story, though it's not obv [...]

    21. Who is Max Demian? Is he deranged? Is he a God? An apostle? Maybe he is the rushing spirit that arrives in a person's life around puberty, swiping away the fears and doubts of childhood and helping the person in question to grow and progress. Or simply misguiding them towards doubtful paths.Had I read it ten years ago, I would have connected with Demian. Something that didn't happen now. It's one of those books that I would seek to hold on to back then, while now, detached as I was, I found it i [...]

    22. رغم أنني كثيرا ما أعيب على الروايات قلة الحواراتإلا أن هذه استثناء لا أعرف كيف أصنفها تماما ، إلا أنني قرأتها في الوقت المناسبذاك الوقت الذي تبدأ ذاتك بطرح الأسئلة التي غالبا لا تجد إجابات مقنعة لها لتسكتها رحلة شاب بسيط متخبط في البحث عن الطريق الموصل لذاتهيتعالى ويتهاوى ب [...]

    23. بعد قراءة هذه الرواية , قمت بوضع كل كتب المؤلف الأخرى على لائحة قراءتي . رواية رائعة لاأظن أنني سأتجاوزها يوماً .دميان . تبحث في فلسفة الخير و الشر , في المباديء التي تقوم على أساسها حياة البشر . في الرغبة بالعيش وفقاً لمبادئ ربما كانت تتعارض مع ما اعتاد عليه الناس و ألفوه .تبدأ ا [...]

    24. “The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world. The bird flies to God. That God's name is Abraxas.”For a book full of philoshophical meanings, Demian was quite understandable. The author did a great job to present his character's thinking and feelings, and even the transition from a boy to a man. Okay, so Demian is a book about growing up, finding oneself and one's place and role in the society. The young boy of the book combines o [...]

    25. خیلی خیلی زیاد من رو به یاد کتاب های پائولو کوئیلو انداخت. باید یه کم مطالعه کنم راجع به شباهتا و تفاوت هاشون. ولی مثل همون ها، از حقیقت گمشده ی انسانیت و از عرفانی مرموز حرف می زد، بدون این که بگه این حقیقت چیه و راهی به سوی اون عرفان نشون بده. فقط شرح مکاشفات و شیدایی های عجیب و [...]

    26. الرواية صغيرة، ولكنها وعرة وكما هي عادة هرمان هيسه فهي ليست نصاً سهلاً، ولا بيضاً مسلوقاً، ولا شيئا تستطيع أن تقرأه وتستوعبه كاملاً ما لم تمنحه نفسك كاملاً. الرواية رحلة داخلية يخوضها البطل صوب ذاته، وعليه فهي فقيرة بالأحداث والحوارات (نسبياً) ومليئة بتلك العبارات التي تضي [...]

    27. There is something infuriating at the center of Hesse's "Demian" & I bet the root of it is the repression of homosexuality. "Demian" is, in its simplest form, THE coming out story. All the imagery and the Biblical allegories all point toward the protagonist's big secret: he's is irresistibly gay. He is in hell trying to get to the point (the climax at the end is over-powerfully dull)--the reader must withstand true bicurious leanings and vanilla homoeroticism. The whole God-should-personify- [...]

    28. Demian What a beautiful book!!!“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us”

    29. This is a fantastic book. I was given it as a present by a girlfriend many years ago, and I love it. I have read it several times over the years, and hopefully will do again. In the book the legendary Hesse applies all his mystical and fantastic story-telling skills to the subject of WWI, the Great War. Not to the action itself, as does All Quiet on the Western Front, but to the generation that bore the brunt of the cataclysm in the trenches and battlefields. Like Le Grand Meaulnes, it is an att [...]
