Helpful Score: 1
This is a great introduction to the history of western philosophy written as a novel. The philosophy part is easy to read and very useful to someone like me who has never had an introductory course in philosophy. The novel part is very interesting by itself and in someways an exercise that makes you reflect on the philosophy you read about. All in all, one of the best books I have read and a book that I will revisit in the future!
