BlurbWanting to understand the most fundamental questions of the universe isn't the province of ivory-tower intellectuals alone, as this book's enormous popularity has demonstrated. A young girl, Sophie, becomes embroiled in a discussion of philosophy with a faceless correspondent. At the same time, she must unravel a mystery involving another young girl, Hilde, by using everything she's learning. The truth is far more complicated than she could ever have imagined.

A mystery story of a girl who receives a lesson on the history of philosophy and discovers different ways of looking at the world. Although I was slightly disappointed by the ending, it was nonetheless a great way to learn about the different philosophers and their way of thinking through Sophie's experience.
i absolutely love this book because it has such an easy and beautiful way to tell the journey and discoveries of the famous philosophers
Interesting and magic in my childhood
Spannend, lehrreich und ein überaschendes Ende :-).
