Jostein Gaarder talks about philosophy in most of the books that the author has produced i.e books like An Unreliable Man and Sofies Welt. Now the author wants to lay down firm basis of everything in this novel, Sophie gets two questions in the mail that really knocks her off. She is torn to bits by the thoughts which start troubling her mind when she is asked a question “Who she is?”.
And then the second question is even more devastating because it is about the whole wide world. The haunt is on, Sophie needs answers and instead of answers she gets clues that leas her toward different conclusions. The girl dives deep in the old philosophies of philosophers like Socrates and gets confusion instead of solution.
The author puts Sophie in trouble to make her look more appealing in front of the audience who want to give the story a quick read out in order to know from where the letters are really coming from.
Simon Vance through his quick narrative skills solves this issue in a flash. And in this scenario we confront another girl with letter with questions far more confusing that Sophie got on her doorstep. Questions like “Who is Hilde?” really need answers but answers for such questions need explorations and a dive into old thoughts and myths. Not advisable for the weekends because books like these need a lot of spare time and if read in a small span of time it will tease the listeners mind. The story has some small breaks in between, a gap created for brain storming or it is a time out for some relaxation so that the mind can ease a little and the start to ponder once again. It is a real gift for those who have a firm belief on philosophies.
