Siddhartha CD-Rom in German was issued  in the fall of 1998

The text (Basisbibliothek), the CD-Rom and the Audio Book have been released.  HHP believes this to be  a well-done innovative project.  Beyond that, it might  be an excellent learning tool for students of German language and literature in foreign countries. 

Check Terzio in Munich and look under "LiteraMedia".  Click here for an image of the CD. 

You will find more information on the Suhrkamp Page, Frankfurt a.M., if you search for "Siddhartha" in the GESAMTKATALOG of the page. 

For quick, easy, and inexpensive ordering of the materials from Germany you might try the German affiliate of Amazon.com (formerly "telebuch.de").  Search for the most recent editions of "Siddhartha"
