Sophie's World (Jostein Gaarder).

Sophie’s World is about the life of a 14 year-old girl called Sophie Amundsen. It takes you on a journey though 3000 years of Western philosophy, presenting important and in most cases annoying questions. This is the explanation of philosophy and philosophers given in the book: A white rabbit is pulled out of a top hat. Because it is an extremely large rabbit, the trick takes many billions of years. All mortals are born at the very tip of the rabbit’s fine hairs, where they are in a position to wonder at the impossibility of the trick.

My oldest brother was a philosophy professor at Penn State University. He suggested this book to me and I LOVE it. My own background is mostly science but my core is really philosophy. I love deep discussions and wondering.... I especially love to hear other peoples' ideas about the meaning of life...
This would be a great intro to philosophy for anyone who has ever wondered how we all evolved to NOW
This book is full of such great teachings. It made me change the way I think. Opened up my eyes to different perspectives. Its great that its in a story format because its easy to read. The story is simple then gets all twisted and confused the sh*t outta me. In a good way though. Some pretty out there stuff. I love it!
IF I am allowed to suggest only one book to my son on his 15th birthday, most likely this will be the one. And the book should not be for the teenagers trying to learn their first lessons on various strands of philosophy. On my second reading of the book, I sure would want to read again in another 15-20 years to re-learn the same thoughts with a different perspective.

The book has myriads of faults for the fault-finders. The philosophical views are rendered extremely simplistic for them to be understandable by the uninitiated. Its pop-philosohpy suffers from a bigger fault: lack of critical analysis in most cases. Omission of details are often jarring when beyond a point the summaries of various views sound quite similar to many others. Sophie's own story too is relatively weak despite a dramatic twist (literal) in the middle.

All that said, this is a classic of its unique kind. The author's reviews should prove no more difficult and no less wondrous than they are to Sophie. Few readers are likely to end the book with less or same curiosity levels than at the beginning. The book is particularly useful to anyone at an impressionable age - about the best gift one can give to any budding youth.
One of my favorite books, I didn't know anything about philosophy and this book explains complex ideas with simple analogies.
"Sophia's World" is an above-average novel embedded with a great introduction to Western philosophy. The plot revolves around Sophia, a young Norwegian teenager who lives in a small town. Just before her fifteen birthday, she starts receiving mysterious letters, which make her ponder the most deep, yet unanswerable, questions, such as: "what is the meaning of life" and "who she is." Sophia's world is not a great novel; however, it does a remarkable job of making philosophy very accessible for the uninitiated, presenting it in a more enjoyable and less dry way compared to the other philosophy introduction books out there.
why we experience anything at all, this book is for you. If you ever watched the movie "Matrix" and feel that you "get it", this book is for you. Jostien goes many layers deeper into the very nature of reality itself rather than mindlessly writing about every philosophical movement since Socrates.

This is the first book on philosophy, I read, that gently blends western history into philosophy and further blending the streams of Eastern and western philosophies. It gives you a perspective on the why different movements arose and the accompanying religious, political and economic conditions during those time periods. I have read different books on philosophy and I find most books dry and devoid of the soulfulness that should accompany this subject. A lot of books are overly rational and objective in their content and is restricted by the limited understanding of the authors writing the books.

Sophies world in comparison examines both the objective and the subjective and while it doesn't lay out a straight path to follow or cover every philosopher in history, Jostien is bold yet diplomatic in making clear where he stands. Not all books are for everyone but this book is definitely for me.
I love this book and this is the second time for me ordering this title. It is a great introduction to philosophy and understanding some of the basic concepts. I love the story concept behind it.... great read.
I don't give five stars lightly, but this book deserves them. The only thing I find lacking a little is that the few explanations of physical phenomena to be found in the book, leave something to be desired. But the philosophy is very well explained, without the usual technical jargon that makes it difficult to digest for the beginner. If you have a "love of wisdom" (that's what philosophy means,) and some inclination for abstract thinking, this book can serve a very good short introduction to the subject. At the same time, the story interwoven with the philosophy classes is very very imaginative, and makes you want to keep reading to know how will all end.
Several things are left unresolved. For instance, will Alberto and Sophie be able to go back to the real world? Are her mother and friends also part of the "ghost world"? I got the impression at the end that the author was thinking on a sequel. I'd love a sequel on a more detailed treatment of analytical philosophy and logical positivism, including the work of Wittgenstein, Bertrand Russel, Rudolf Carnap , A. J. Ayer and Willard van Orman Quine. He could throw in a little propositional logic for good measure. The story should continue with the same characters of course.
And why stop there? He could have a sequel on the concepts of Math and another on Physics, for example. :-) Just kidding, but I liked the style of the presentation so much, that the idea of the sequels came to me. I might be tempted some day on writing the Math and Physics parts myself, without plagiarizing of course.
