The story was well written, I was able to imagine the environment and I was able to see how Sophie would react on those given situations. Upon reading it, I also asked myself, “Who am Well I know who am l, but like Sophie, I also feel like questioning myself who am really l. Sometimes I question myself why did I do this, and oftentimes I can’t understand myself. I have always had a question about everything like Sophie. I feel like I am Sophie when I am reading this story.
I noticed that although the story s written as a textbook of philosophy, it really is a guide on how we as humans should approach our own lives. I was wondering throughout the book that was the main focus of the story. Was it Sophie or Hilled? But once I neared the end of the book, I realized that the books main character is a combination of the both, because Sophie and Hilled represent a direct translation to how we should react to philosophy and use it in our own lives, making us the real focus of the book. We find out that
Albert is the model for Alberta, and that Hilled is the model of Sophie. This reminded me of the many children stories that my mom used to read me as a kid that had the parent in the book reading a story to their kid about another set of parent and kid. When the book started, I was unsure of what to think. The point of Sophie’s World Is to help us to question our own lives, and to help guide us through our own lives. I thought the book treated my intellectual side very well because of all the things I learned when the book described the philosophers.
