    I was a philosophy major in school and *everybody* would ask if I had read Sophie's World. "What an amazing book!" they would gush. "You'll love it!" So I bought it. Purchased the book, let it simmer on my shelf for awhile, and finally picked it up a few years ago to give it a go. ...

    The two things this book has going for it are: the plot and narrative frame are original and creative, and the story is more informative than most. The basic premise is that a 14-year-old Norwegian girl embarks on a correspondence course with a philosopher, and he teaches her the m...

    My dear Sophie, there comes a time when you have to face some harsh truths about this wicked world. And I think that time is now. Some people, and it pains me to say this, are not what they seem. I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but that breezy scoutmaster, that avuncular English te...

    It took me two months to get through this 500-page book. I can rationalize the reasons thusly: ? I was busy. ? I took time to absorb the content of the book. Instead of rushing through it, I let each chapter sink in before I moved on. But that?s, you know, rationalizing....

    I enjoyed the book immensely. I studied basic philosophy in college so I soon became aware that many philosophers were left out and whole era's were glossed over in this book. You know, that's OK. One - It's not a text book and two - It's NOT a text book! The stories are separate an...

    Sophie?s World is an outline of Western philosophy that is beautifully set in a fictional story. It goes from pre-Socratic philosophy all the way to Sartre. Jostein Gaarder does a very good job not just by writing a concise history of philosophy, but also by writing a very access...

    Basically, Russell's History of Western Philosophy adapted as a postmodern Norwegian YA novel. Or if you want more details: (view spoiler)["Where are we?" asked Sofie. "I don't understand. We aren't in my world any more. Or in Hilde's world. So..." Alberto sighed. "It is clear," ...

    Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder is an ambitious project which falls flat - in my opinion, of course. It is a very good introduction to European philosophy, with a few casual references to Eastern thought thrown in for the sake of comparison. Starting with Pre-Socratics, it provide...

    This has been an upsetting reread because I've found that though the book is a quiet entity on its own and in the mind of its readers, I was left hungry for more, but I was also balanced. For years after I read this book, which changed my life for the better, I thought it was the best ...
