This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Definitely not my type of book The Solitaire Mystery weaves an astonishingly original tapestry of tales, both real and imagined, from the viewpoint of a twelve-year-old boy names Hans Thomas. On a car trip through Europe with his father, Hans searches for the mother who left them years ago.

At the same time, he immerses himself in a fantastic miniature book that only he can read: A brilliant balancing act between rhyme and reason, reverie and reality, The Solitaire Mystery invites the reader into both worlds, each chapter represented by a different card from the deck. In the end, the journey of Hans Thomas becomes our own, a universal search for meaning and fulfillment that not only enchants, but enriches our hearts and souls.
This was one of those books that made me wonder if I’m as smart as I think I am. The entire book didn’t make sense to me at all. I mean, I followed both plots but couldn’t for the life of me figure out why the books was written at all.
Other people seem to adore the book — it has a 4. But I’m of the small minority who didn’t care for it. I really wanted to love this because I remember loving Sophie’s World when I read it in high school probably about 14 years ago but I have SO many problems with it. The question is, after wasting hours of reading time, do I gaardsr more time writing an in-depth review about why this book is terrible, or do I cut my losses and just give it a low rating?

Life is still hard, people struggle and fight and senseless tragedy happens. I just could not get into this.
Good story for middle school children. This little piece of struggling so called “philosophy” may help youngsters impove their reading and thinking skills, and that’s it. As to adults who are really interested in inquiring in nature and existence, this tiny covered writing pack can be considered as quite a bit annoying and tiresome due to the all contradictions or conflicts in itself.
If I may say so, do not waste your time with it, instead, take a good trip to a mountain and try to enjoy all sw Good story for middle school children. If I may say so, do not waste your time with it, instead, take a good trip to a mountain and try to enjoy all sweet nature face to face. I have to admit it, I really did not like I found this book to be kind of a CS Lewis knockoff, but nowhere near as good.
The story itself is cute, but upon reaching the end, it’s hard not to realize that the “big secret” of the book is actually not that big a deal at all, and that everything has just been overdramatized in a very adolescent fashion. I would give this book to a bored year-old.
It is for people that really like filosophy and to wonder why are we here and who we are. The boy, supposedly a child, thinks sometimes as a 30 years old men. I did not fell in love with the story and I felt the characters were, specially the father, really boring.
But again, not my kind of book. Something must have been lost in the translation of this book.
I found it boring, predictable and utterly UNimaginative. It might be alright as a pre-teen book but, as an adult, it was a chore to keep jostei.

Add a road trip and some profound observations, stir vigorously. Wait a while, then wait a while longer. Driver, I think I missed my stop!
Gaarfer was enjoyable, and I always enjoy Gaarder’s style, but it was all a bit contrived and laboured. May read it again, actually, because it was interesting how all strands of the story were eventually drawn together.
By the end, I didn’t care about any of the characters, nor what happened in the end. I gave it one star for “didn’t like it. I do not understand why he is a best selling diz.
Maybe his English translator is very, very bad. Read it after Sophia’s World I read half of it, skipped to the end and so was a wasted couple of days.
