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.
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?Alle Produktbeschreibungen

>>>>>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)
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.
