Why does Ana bear such a close resemblance to the model for Goyas famous Maja paintings? What is the significance of the Joker as he steps out of his pack of cards? As the action moves from Fiji to Spain, from the present to the past, unfolding further stories within the stories, the novel reveals an astonishing richness and complexity. As bold and imaginative in its sweep as Sophies World, it shows again that Jostein Gaarders unique and special gift is to make us wonder at the awe-inspiring mystery of the universe.
