Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder

I wish I can convey how much I fancy Sophie’s World. It was this book that first brought me to think about western philosophy, although my early grasp was childlike. Thanks to Jostein Gaarder. He began to fill in my understanding, one that was initially framed in terms simplistic enough for a girl like me to grasp. It gave me plenty of opportunities to digest classical philosophy. I could hardly contain my glee! Sophie’s World is a treatise on western philosophy, indeed. 

I'm glad that I still gave it a shot after seeing the 3.9/5 ratings on goodreads. Do not let those reviews stop you from reading a certain book. Sophie's World will take you on a journey of investigation and understanding of classical philosophy in Europe.
