Finished Siddhartha a few days ago. Not a big fan. He tried too hard to make it sound like a religious text, none of the characters except for Govinda acted realistically, and he completely ignored "show, don't tell." Still, there were some interesting philosophical ideas in there, and that was really the reason I was reading the book.

Moving on to In The Air. I'm a few chapters in and it's quite nice.
