This week’s teaser is from Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder – a thinly disguised philosophy text masquerading as a novel.
Life is both sad and solemn. We are led into a wonderful world, we meet one another here, greet each other—and wander together for a brief moment. Then we lose each other and disappear as suddenly and unreasonably as we arrived.
~ Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder
This book is full of some wonderful philosophical gems like the one I have posted above. Have you read this book? What did you think about it? I am a little torn. I like the philosophic insights but the story leaves me cold. I am midway through the book now and am hoping that the plot will go somewhere interesting pretty soon.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
