Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

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. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Hörkassette.

Synopsis

Twelve-year-old Hans Thomas lives alone with his father, a man who likes to givehis sons lessons about Life and has a penchant for philosophy. Hans Thomas' mother left when he was four (to find' herself) and the story begins when father and son set off on a trip to Greece, where she now lives, to try to persuade her to come home. En rout, in Switzerland, Hans Thomas is given a magnifying glass by a dwarf at a petrol station, and the next day he finds a tiny book in his bread roll which can only be read with a magnifying glass. How did the book come to be there? Why does the dwarf keep showing up? It is all very perplxing and Hans Thomas has enough to cope with, with the daunting prospect of seeing his mother. Now his journey has turned into an encounter withthe unfathomable...or does it all have a logical explanation?

I definately recommend this book, please do take the patience to read through the below.
>>>>>To those who are new to Jostein Gaarder:
This book enchants both adults and children.
In a style of a fairy tale Gaarder is able to use the innocent tale to prove so many different parts of life itself. If you're bored you'll certainly dive into this book. This isn't a book you can skim through so you'll have to keep that in mind. If you skim through even ONE word you'll end up losing the whole book and finding it either boring or difficult to understand. But if you let the words become part of your imagination you'll be able to see the events. You don't particularlly 'feel' anything from the book.
It is just a simple fairy tale and yet so clever. As you read the book you will be able to interact with the characters in your own mind and puzzle with your own thoughts just as little Hans did.
This is also a great book to give as a gift also because although not completely an 'easy' read it is the most comfortable and easy to settle into book that I've come across.
>>>>>For those who have read Sophie's World:
The Solitaire Mystery is in a similar fairy tale format but this book is easier to understand and uses less complex plots although it is very cleverly stabalized.
It uses many of the thoughts and describtions from Sophie's World again so the amazing philosophic views you probably gained from Sophie's World are most likely to turn into a plain interest in the story and fairy tale/plot itself. That makes the book much more comfortable to bear and read. The ending is much better as well and a little more clean cut. (also-please look at the above text if you haven't read it because although it is for those who are new to the author-there are more describtions)

I found The Solitaire Mystery to have very vivid characters and a good plot. I think that it is much more captivating than Sophie's World, which I also read. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to think. It raises many questions in one's mind, but answers few. This book interwines past and present, fate and chance, a card game and 'real' life. Although taking place in the land of the philosophers, the main character in this book, Hans, has modern day family problems. This book starts when Hans and his father go off to find Hans' mother who went off to 'find herself'. As they drive to find Hans' mother, they are followed by a strange midget who Hans suspects to be a living card: a joker. A baker in a small village gives Hans a book: a book about living cards...Is it true? One thing Hans does realize is that throughout time there will always be a 'joker'. I think that although this book raises questions about who we are and what our purpose is, it gives one hope; it tells one that although one comes from dust and eventually returns to dust, one's ideas are alive always

This is the best book ever written. The Solitaire Mystery gives a whole new meaning to life. Deftly linking life and fantasy - merging the two so much that it's hard to make out which is which. Suddenly "life" becomes even more mysterious than we think it is. An absolute must-read for anyone who has ever wondered "who am I" and "where do we come from". Watch out - this could shake you up...
They may have said that about every other book - but this is one book that is completely UN-PUT-DOWN-ABLE. I finished it in a day and haven't stopped reading it again and again since I first read it 3 years ago.

Firstly, i would like to confess that i am not a philosopher. Better still i know nothing about philosophy. I plucked this book off the shelf at my community library because i've heard of J. Gaarder and his better known Sophie's World (which incidentally i have not read too). Once i started reading this book however, i could not put it down. I was captivated by the twin storyline of Hans Thomas who left Norway with his philosophical father in search of his mother who had "went out into the world to find herself"; and that of Baker Hans, Albert Klages whose mother died when he was a child, Ludwig the German soldier and Frode who found himself stranded on an island with nothing but a pack of cards for company. This is a story-within-a-story in which fantasy and reality, the past and present, are brilliant mixed. I could not put the book down and had to read on chapter after chapter. Interwoven seamlessly throughout the narration are thought-provoking questions about our existence and the mystery of life. To sum up my feelings at the end of it, i was captivated, intrigued and fascinated. This book deserves a second reading and i'm only too sure that i'd enjoy it more.

Jostein Gaarder is a philosopher who wants to share one thought with the world, and he does it extremely well in the form of a novel in "The Solitaire Mystery." He defends that if dreams are so real, then how could humans ever be sure that reality is not a dream? The story itself, which I found fascinating, is the trip of a father and his child from Norway to Greece by car in order to find the mother of the child. During the trip, the child will begin a parallel voyage that will take him to find himself and his place in the world that we all live in. The reader will not only enter a fascinating world, but he will also find himself as the kid in the story does. In this process, the father will take a major role as he tells his son the most important ideas of the history of philosophy. Overall, the book gives the reader a new perspective with which to observe the world and measure what surrounds him. If you pick it up, you won't be able to put it back down; and it surely will change your life as it did with mine.
