Did you read it? It's a REAL mindopener! It's about philosophy but it's a novel, so the writer teaches you about famous philosoper's but he tells you a weird story as well. the plot is really odd and unexpected. There's a movie about it as well! But I haven't seen much of that...

I tried to read this when I was about 11. I struggled through, got bored, picked it up again, struggled some more and eventually forgot about it.

But it is a very interesting book, and now that I'm actually studying philosophy I'm going to have to pick it up again and give it a read

There was a sequel too, and some more philosophically minded books by Jostein Gaarder. If you enjoyed 'Sophie's World' you should have a look for them - good reads

I loved it, but I read it for the last time when I was 9, so I don't remember too much. I recommend it to every kid who wants to know more about philosophy. It's great!

I read it and I liked it a lot though there were parts where I really had to force myself to keep reading.  But I'm happy that I finished it, it's absolutely worthwhile.

I started reading the first few pages before I was kicked out of the library for first years but I thought it was really good.

My theology techer recommended this to us.

Basically a 14 year old girl gets a letter from a philosopher one day, and she starts coresponding with him and doing a course. It's got philosophy written into it as you go along. I'm only part way through it, but already I'd like to recomend it to y'all or see if anyone else has read it- 'specially if you populate the religion topic on misc.

I've read it a few years ago, liked it a lot.

I just don't understand what philosophy has to do with religion  I would recommend it to everyone, religious or not.
