2016 Classics Challenge: Sophie’s World


Amy Davies - September 7th, 2016

Sophie's WorldIf you’re taking part in the 2016 Classics Challenge and are looking for your next book, let us recommend Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder.

When fourteen-year-old Sophie encounters a mentor who introduces her to philosophy, mysteries deepen in her own life. Why does she keep getting postcards addressed to another girl? Who is the other girl? And who, for that matter, is Sophie herself? To solve the riddle, she uses her new knowledge of philosophy, but the truth is far stranger than she could have imagined.

Sophie’s World is a modern classic and has been translated into sixty languages and sold more than forty million copies worldwide. It offers an addictive blend of mystery, philosophy and fantasy that will appeal to all inquisitive readers – whether young or old.

We have three copies to give away – to enter:
