Amazing read

This is one of my favorite books ever. I read in for my senior AP English class and it just blew my mind. Everybody loved it just as much as I did. Gaarder gives his readers the general time line of philosophy and applies/demonstrates these philosophies through the plot. I wish there was a way that my hard copy could come with a digital download of this book, like those blu ray movies, so that I could have this book on my iPhone and read it whenever I can't have my book.

An Excellent Start

This book was chosen by my book club group (a group of four, grade 7 girls). Not only were they engaged in the conversations but were inspired to think more deeply about their world, their choices, and their influences. Furthermore, the rhetorical choices made in the story was masterful, at times. The author was clever enough to be able to write some of the logic and the concepts into the rhetoric, further illustrating the ideologies.

As an English teacher, I am so happy to have been given such a nice text to work with and such an engaging text to inspire my students with.
