Sophie's World, by Jostein Gaarder, is a fantasy novel that explores the history of philosophy. It takes place in Norway in the 1990's. Some of the themes in the book are philosophy and free will.

The characters are Sophie, Alberto, Hilde, Albert Knag, Sophie's mother, Joanna, Hilde's mother, Sophie's father, Jeremy, and Hermes.

He is great at reasoning and thinking things out.
Hilde is Albert Knag's daughter. She is why Sophie and Alberto were created. She is compassionate. She is willing to believe in things no matter what anyone else thinks, like Sophie. On her fifteenth birt…
