Journal Entry 1 by aussieangel2 from Dayton, Western Australia Australia on Thursday, October 27, 2005
Looking into her mailbox one day, a fourteen-year-old Norwegian Schoolgirl called Sophie Amundsen finds two surprisng peices of paper. On them are written the questions: 'Who are you?' and 'Where does teh world come from?'

The writer is an enigmatic philosopher called Albert Knox, and his two teasing questions are the beginning of an extraordinary tour through the history of Western Philosophy from the pre-Socratics to Sartre. In a series of brilliantly entertaining letters, and then in person (with his dog, Hermes), Albert Knox opens Sophie's enquiring mind to the fundamental questions that philosophers have been asking since the dawn of civilisation.

But as soon as Sophie begins to find her feet in this dazzling, exciting new world, she and Albert find themselves caught up in a plot which is itself a most perplexing philosophical conundrum....

Sounds very interesting... thanks for sending me this.

Edited 17 September 2010: Started this one on Monday and am struggling to get into it, however I'll perservere a little longer as it's intriguing and a number of friends (non-BC people) have said they enjoyed reading it.

Struggling to get into this one so am putting it aside. If someone wants it before I give it another chance you are more than welcome to it.
