If you've ever been curious about philosophy but at the same time intimidated by reading philosophy this is the perfect book for you. The author is somehow able to weave the history of philosophy into a captivating story. You feel like you're reading a mystery - it carries that kind of suspense, but then at the same time you're getting these philosophy lessons written in such an accessible way. It's the perfect mix of fantasy, mystery and learning.

Wow! This book has helped me understand the history of philosophy better than any college course. So readable for what I had thought was a dry topic. It wasn't dry at all in this format.

Amazing and excellent, this book will teach, entertain and enlighten all at once. It is mostly a good course in philosophy, but there is also a metaphysical mystery going on that only serves to illustrate and highlight the philosophical points being made. Highly recommended!

Great book and an amazing overview of western philosophy in the process. Only down side--odd ending. But still very much worth the read.
