Book Description
Through five intense years in the 1970s, Steinn and Solrunn had a happy life together. Then they suddenly parted ways, for reasons that are unclear to both. In the summer of 2007 they meet again on a balcony of an old wooden hotel by a fjord in western Norway. It is a place they both have fond memories from, and their meeting turns out to be fateful. But is it purely coincidental that they meet at that particular spot at that particular time? Over a couple of weeks that summer they write emails to each other, and it becomes clear that they have been living with very different interpretations of their shared past. THE CASTLE IN THE PYRENEES is both a love story and a novel of ideas, exploring the place of human consciousness in the universe. Its main theme is of great current interest: can scinece explain everything, or does some invisible force influence our lives?

    Jostein Gaarder is one of the writers I enjoy more; his philosophical and mysterious books make me really think.
    This one is a sort of dialogue about whether there is a spiritual dimension to our universe or not and, despite my interest in the topics raised in Solrun and Steinn's emails, it was hard work to read.
    Definitely one to read again when my brain is more receptive.
