Book review: Sophie’s world

During the Christmas holiday, I read a famous book of the norwegian writer Jostein Gaarder: “Sophie’s world”.

Shortly summarized the story is about a young girl who takes a philosophy course arranged by an old philosopher. Almost all of the famous philosophers from the year 1000 – 2000 is covered, which was quite interesting. Each of them is properly covered, and the content is carefully selected with the most important. The story also tells us about the girl’s everyday life, which is a bit boring I might add. The book contains about 500 pages, and I think that’s a little too long – some of the everyday story could be skipped, I believe.

It has also been made a movie based on the book, I haven’t seen it yet, but perhaps I will later.

On a scale from 1 – 10, I would give the book a 7.
