It gets trippier and trippier, and some readers might judge Hesse's writing as too ornate and poetic (bordering on so-called purple prose at times) but his empassioned, almost obsessive introspection and the surrealistic plot twists sure keep the novel moving.
I liked Hesse's writing. I don't like his twisting of Nietzchian philosophy or ignorance of religious concepts, but other than that, he's a fun read.
