This is a most unusual book. For the seeker after truth, there is much to find. As an adult reader perhaps the device of using children makes it more for the teenage reader. However I am enjoying it and finding it very enlightening. As a conversation between two girls it works very well. As it is for many seekers of enlightenment, they are ageless in a way. It certainly stands well with Lewis's 'Last Battle' in the progress from a childish life to a philosopher's playground.
There is so much in words that when we think deeply about them, their influence is more significant when we live them. Allowing life to unfold in its own way without trying to push it in the desired direction is a challenge we can learn to master from the example of these children.
I look forward to Ms Alexandrou's next book.
