Review:

Jostein Gaarder had an unlikely international success with Sophie's World, a novelized exploration of western philosophy through the eyes of a young girl. This is an earlier work, translated from the Norwegian by Sarah Jane Hails. This fable-like story dabbles in philosophy too, though more lightly. It tells of a Norwegian boy traveling across Europe with his calm and reflective father in search of his long lost mother. The boy finds a tiny manuscript that reveals the secret of a magic deck of cards that can tell the future.

About the Author:

In 1994, Jostein Gaarder's novel Sophie's World was published to great acclaim in the United States and went on to become a bestseller the world over. Jostein Gaarder taught philosophy for many years before becoming a novelist. He lives in Olso, Norway.
