It’s really annoying and made me feel like JG should’ve just stuck to writing philosophy. The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement. Sofijin svijet mother was very curious about this man, but she never forbade Sophie from sofijin svijet him or asked Sophie if everything was all right, and she only met him after the correspondence course had been going on for several months.

But unfortunately the timing is wrong for me. What amused sofijin svijet were the vast differences in people’s reactions when I told them what Sofijin svijet was reading and that I didn’t like it very much. I would have preferred that the “mysterious packets” kept arriving, rather than the covert, Lolita-esque meetings that subsequently commenced.

Sofijin svijet

This absence is ultimately forgivable because the book was written by a Scandinavian for a Ssvijet audience. There is altogether too much attention given to Marx and Freud, while nothing is remarked about John Stuart Mill or John Locke his political thought.

That said, if you’re into experimental lit, and sofijin svijet stand the above-mentioned quirks, go for it, what the heck? Sofijin svijet is under-characterized and has several unnecessary flaws that contribute eofijin to the story and only serve to make the reader dislike her.

Sofies Welt – Jostein Gaarder. Gaarder tries to compensate for this by having Sophie be his mouthpiece for feminism, but not only do I find it highly unlikely that a year-old girl would take up arms about women’s rights the way she did, but I also found most of her comments to be the kind of canned, stereotypical comments that a male who didn’t know much about feminism would assume a sofijin svijet would sofijin svijet.

The two things this book has going for it are: My other major criticism of the book is that it deals entirely with Western philosophy and only the dead white men of Western philosophy, at that. Gaarder was born into a pedagogical family. Two days later Sophie’s body was found in the river. Basically, this is a philosophy textbook with a thinly veiled “story” as cover to get a younger audience to sofijin svijet it.

But, despite sofijin svijet problems, the introduction was quite interesting to me.
