Missing are the vivid portrayals and homoerotic tensions that propelled his novels beyond Platonic dialogues and into personal journeys. In the meanwhile I read other reviews on this book, and I think I ought to give this book a retry. You’re reading a biography, albeit a fictional one, and it is more concerned with Joseph’s relationship to the game, his understanding of it, and by extension his society.

Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. I mean, I know WHAT the book is about, I want to know if you enjoyed the presentation of those arguments, the story, did you agree or disagree?

Hermann Hesse was a German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter. In argument, for example, they will not shout or wave their arms.

I really did not like the Glass Bead Game. The two fundamental failures in the book are its main character and its central device, the Game itself. There are no objectives.

The combined result ends up being neither a good philosophy book, nor a good story. If there’s one thing about fiction I dislike abalorkos is not “getting” the point.


Quotes from El juego de los a I’ve said this before, but here I go again; just because this was hexse many decades ago, and just because it is assigned reading in some college class somewhere does NOT mean everyone has already read it.

Kate Parr I would say if you’re waiting for a big event, or grand set piece, that doesn’t really happen. Con buona pace di tutti i patiti degli oroscopi.

Introductions with spoilers belong on that long list of things you should never do in modern society. And I suppose that it might be just me. When I discovered that the book does not include female characters of any substance, I did not read beyond the abalorlos hundredth page. Avoid it at all costs.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. When one of the players needed to learn Chinese characters to play, one realised the premise that any one individual could play alone was preposterous; and that learning and human knowledge would be being constantly added to the game were ignored too. Tell me again why Abalprios am wasting my time reading this?

The main reason goes like this — the basic premise may as well have The basic premise is the author imagines a future intellectual game embracing the highest of human intellect, ideals and knowledge. I struggled through it. There is lots to ponder here. Unfortunately, I didn’t like this book much at all. Abalorkos and Hesse’s Introduction juegoo for me like wading through a bog wearing hip-waders I have had that actual experience in life.

I like Herman Hesse. A character within the Glass Bead Game dismissing the Game itself as far lesser than some other symbol system?


El juego de los abalorios / The Glass Bead Game : Hermann Hesse :

Like some of Ayn Rand’s novels, the characters bloviate endlessly on their metaphysics. I mean there abalorioos meditations about problems not related to the stroy for 5 or 6 pages and even the dialogues were short one page long meditations by two people, who tell their own opinion with pretending listening to each other. Deux Ex Machina; character reputation saved by random, meaningless death.

This has been quite the disappointment. In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only came later.

Set in the future the 25th CenturyHesse’s book describes a world that has miraculously managed to stop fighting, watching cruddy TV, and listening to gossip as vicariously as it does now. This was my second attempt in thirty years to read this cerebral masterpiece. And the more ambient suspense the author generates by promising a brilliant reality, without ever showing even a flickering corner of it, the worse the bland filler starts to smell when it all gets stale.

An intriguing question less. It has a plot and sub-plots, if possible.
