And there is always a young boy, looking for the big thruth that he finally wont find, or if he finds it, it turns out to be a lie. In my estimation, this book has none of those qualities. I’m sorry, but I found the book being syrupy. By which I mean: Sep 26, Yasin S.

Humans have their individual consciousness and hence the yesse responsability and have to respond for their crimes. Hermann Hesse is certainly monomaniacal in his contemplations of human nature but the GBG is entirely recycled material presented with all the finesse of an expository sledgehammer.

The Glass Bead Game of the title is a pointless exercise where they try to weave together all the world’s knowledge in some sort of trivial exhibition. There is lots to ponder here.

El Juego de Los Abalorios

The summary of The Glass Bead Game is so intriguing. You’re reading a biography, albeit a fictional one, and …more I would say if you’re waiting for a big event, or grand set piece, that doesn’t really happen. Maybe it just try to show how intensive not extensive the glass bead game’s world was, but I suspect he wanted to show, the he know quite much about it, and he wanted to show it to everyone.

It’s long and repetitive for no reason, it’s supposed to be about future but feels like it’s XIX century, the main character is considered to be a genius but he never does anything to suggest that he is special. This world had wiped out all western religions except Catholicism, and somehow decided “we’re going to live a better [i. I did I like Herman Hesse. I read the whole story but I stopped at the end where the three manuscripts of Joseph Knecht’s had been preserved.

Put that nice scholarly analysis after the story, not before. That last ditch effort didn’t make the character any more noble for me than it did when they tried the same thing in the undeserving Best Picture winner “Terms of Endearment”.


Hesse has portrayed the usual, high-spirited, correct ideas puts me to sleep. This has been quite the disappointment. ep

El Juego de Los Abalorios : Hermann Hesse :

Not what I thought it would be. I really did not like the Glass Bead Game.

I hoped actually – believed that the author would explain and show the brilliance of it, but the book is really just about the main character’s life.

Even as a work of intellect abaloris philosophy mentioning Hagel etc there was not even one worthy quote to give you. If there’s one thing about fiction I dislike it is not “getting” the point.

But Hesse wanted it to crown a towering edifice, worthy of the sense of weight and magnitude that was, in fact, only the subject of the idea rather than its dimensions. This was the kind of book that makes me want to slap the author kos the end for do liberally wasting my time. This isn’t one of those books. I never really got how it worked or what the point was supposed to be.

His life is a dull blank, undeserving of a biography at all, especially when at least three other characters go by who abaloorios actually have made good reading. I read this book some years ago, after I read almost all other novels by Hesse. This is “Beneath the Wheel, the Really and Truly Uncut Edition” as though the intervening decades of stylistic development never took place.

What the fuck is the Glass Bead Game anyway? There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. Sera la Historia la encargada de demostrar que Castalia no puede ser eterna; el dinamismo del mundo exterior chocara irremediablemente contra la perfeccion inmovil del casto pais.

Further sorry if this is a spoiler the issue which finally confirmed hess is a abalorioa novel is that the aforementioned clever guy at the culmination had to write an extended memo to his leader to explain himself and his view of the future. The central character is, so we are repeatedly told, this overwhelmingly charismatic leader, abaolrios we’re only told this, it never comes out in Hesse’s portrait of him.

The two fundamental failures in the book are its main character and its central device, the Game itself. En el centro de ellos, Joseph Knecht, representante de Ia orden laica de Castalia, ensena a los benedictinos el “juego de abalorios,” entablando relaciones con la orden religiosa dirigida por un historiador, que de ese modo lo introduce en el seno mismo de la ciencia historica.


Mi sfinisce questo libro. Into this story steps Joseph Knecht, a man who becomes a “Magister Ludi” a sort of archbishop for the game players. However, if after a hundred pages, the language and descriptions haven’t grabbed you, then there’s probably nothing that follows that will. His best known works include SteppenwolfSiddharthaand The Glass Bead Game also known as Magister Ludi which explore an individual’s search for spirituality outside society.

I really struggled to finish this book. Only the final essays are more digestible, though they add littl I read this book some years ago, after I read almost all other novels by Hesse. It has a plot and sub-plots, if possible. I love the idea that the GBG is a synthesis of the knowledge and culture of mankind throughout history.

This is beautiful description of the involution of the human society represented by Kneht who turned his back to the spiritual world, its morality, universal culture and spiritual nobility and who dies as a human to become “more instinctual than intellectual”, that is – worst than animals or, as Hesse suggests: Then the dream died.

Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. In this utopia, a sexless and nearly womanless and deathly dull world of abstract intellectual development, mastering intellectual abstractions is the highest calling for humanity.

Of course, a writer needs to be able to let the reader fill in empty spaces that the story only sketches with spare gestures. No matter how great the author, I refuse to be taken on a ponderous lengthy ride to nowhere.
