I rarely rate a book with 5 stars, but with this book Hesse proves he is an artist. Everything comes full circle to Camenzind: not only does he mature as a character but he comes home again (and that's hard to do!). Beautiful prose accurately captures the reality and struggles of the common man, and we're allowed to piggy-back on Camenzind's curious reflections of himself. I faced the characters of my childhood, struggled with the all-important disasters of adolescence, and gained closure as I said my good-byes. I really enjoyed this book.
