Review:

"First, think a beginner's guide to philosophy . . . Next, imagine a fantasy novel--something like a modern-day version of "Through the Looking Glass". Meld these disparate genres, and what do you get? Well, what you get is an improbable international bestseller . . . [A] tour de force." --"Time"

Book Description:

The international bestseller about life, the universe and everything.
