No one’s that “perfect.

Yes, this is an excellent book for heavy thinkers. I usually like weighty wordy novels where nothing in particular happens. Oh, and it’s much longer than The Glass Bead game is, yet you can see I have no complaints at all!

Tell me again why I am wasting my time reading this? Hesse did read Plato’s work as well as a story of Jesus-man tempted by devil in a desert, yet didn’t grasp the meaning.

Here, now, we have the potential for a meaty examination of this Game thing, which we deserve after putting up with so much talk about it. However, if after a hundred pages, the language and descriptions haven’t grabbed you, then there’s probably nothing that follows that will. I get it, really! Just to name a few problems with it.

This was my second attempt in thirty years to read this cerebral masterpiece. Missing are the vivid portrayals and homoerotic tensions that propelled his novels beyond Platonic dialogues and into personal journeys.

I love the idea that the GBG is a synthesis of the knowledge and culture of mankind throughout history. 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 avalorios pais.

In this sentence Hesse justifies human destruction: By which I mean: I don’t recomend this book to anyone. View all 22 comments. There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. 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. I really struggled to finish this book. So yes, definitely others saw the connection.


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’m told I’m not allowed to call this book “pretentious hogwash”, so I won’t. There is lots to ponder here. This is an unreadable, pointless, overblown dirge. There are no abaloeios and absolutely no mention of what would become of an intelligent girl – such a thing apparently doesn’t seem to exist in Hesse’s eyes. Into this story steps Joseph Knecht, a man who becomes a “Magister Ludi” a sort of archbishop for the game players.

The most dull character ever. The combined result ends up being neither a good philosophy book, nor a good story. In his time, Hesse was juuego popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only ed later.

That Knecht comes to realize that Castalia is too isolated from the rest of unworthy, simple-minded humanity hardly gives the impression that Hesse hadn’t settled on this as his ideal world View all 3 comments.

El Juego de Los Abalorios : Hermann Hesse :

But I didn’t realize it was more of a biography type book, at least in the sense of how it was told. He imagines a symbol system within which all academic disciplines can be encoded, and can interact with each other, like a conversion chart for all fields of knowledge.

Gave up halfway through. I mean there were 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. Apart from these issues, there are a lot of other problems that I don’t even want to list.


Rarely does something transpire that it’s not mentioned three or four times in consecutive paragraphs. Our one glimpse of the practical nature of the game has all the fanfare of a whoopee cushion.

Bastien Perrot, experto en musica, dio el nombre de Juego de abalorios a un ejercicio intelectual para el cual utilizaba perlas de vidrio en lugar de signos graficos. I hoped actually – believed that the author would explain and show the brilliance of hexse, but the book is really just about the main character’s life.

El Juego de Abalorios

The main problem was that my expectations were quite high. A long book full of portentious self-promotion but with nothing to say.

The cream of the intellectual lks are sent here as kids, separated from the outside world and their I simply hated The Glass Bead Game, all fifteen million pages of it. The summary lps The Glass Bead Game is so intriguing. When I discovered that the book does not include female lso of any substance, I did not read beyond the one hundredth page.

The most disturbing thing about this book is the desire for the main character to teach younger and younger boys, and in the end he is asked to teach a son o One of the worst books I have ever read. 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.
