Sophie's world

WHAT A TRIPPY BOOK...

It's a history of philosophy but that isn't all...
meh i don't want to ruin what's so trippy about it.

Some of my classmates say it's a REALLY good book. I am.... confused. lol throughout the whole book i was confused and although i enjoyed the story (?!!@#%)... I'm glad it's over. I learned a lot though.

i read it. Not bad. The philosophy lessons get tedious, even though they are new and are key to the story. the book could have done well with substitution through dialogue rather than summations of different writers philosophy in every chapter, sometimes multiple times. It disconnects the reader from the story, and makes them have to constantly get back into the story after these philosophy "interludes." Oh yeah, what was just happening? that is what the reader has to do nearly every chapter.
