    A masterpiece? Really?

    Now that I have finally read this book after intending to do so for over forty years, I am really disappointed. The Glass Bead Game is hailed as Hesse's masterpiece; indeed, the chief reason that he won the Nobel Prize. Really? I have to say that I found the novel pretentious in tone yet shallow in concept, overwrought yet vapid, and exhaustingly long yet artistically lazy.
