Some pretty out there stuff. 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 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: 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. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

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.

    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: Great book to grain basic knowledge before studying more formal philosophy. 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 See all reviews. See all customer images. Most recent customer reviews. Published 2 months ago.
