Overview: The author of the massively successful Sophie's World returns with a love story and a novel of ideas, exploring the place of human consciousness in the universe. 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. This intimate love story of rediscovery explores the question: can science explain everything, or does some invisible force influence our lives?

Durch einen Spiegel, in einem dunklen Wort by Jostein Gaarder( Book )
43 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 9 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die todkranke Cecilie erhält unerwartet Besuch: Ariel, ihr Schutzengel (Engel sind seit einiger Zeit in Mode!), macht sich bemerkbar und verwickelt sie in Gespräche über Gott und die Welt, über die menschliche Existenz, deren Begrenzung und Aufgehobensein in einem unendlichen Kosmos. Der Engel, ein Geistwesen, wünscht von ihr, dem Menschenkind, in die Geheimnisse des menschlichen Daseins eingeführt zu werden; zugleich ermöglicht er Cecilie im Rahmen ihrer Gespräche bruchstückhafte Einblicke in die Welt "jenseits des Spiegels". Dank seiner Hilfe gelingt es Cecilie, ein für ihr Alter erstaunliches Mass an Lebensweisheit zu erlangen. Und dass ihr Schutzengel Ariel auch auf ihrem letzten Gang im irdischen Dasein "durch den Spiegel" zum Reisebegleiter wird, versteht sich von selbst. - Gaarders stark von mythischen Bildern und philosophischem Denken geprägter Roman versteht sich als Denkanstoss im Hinblick auf eine Auseinandersetzung mit letzten Fragen. Die Figur der Cecilie, die als Vermittlerfigur zwischen jugendlichem Lesepublikum und religionsphilosophischem Gehalt des Romans eingesetzt ist, gerät teilweise nicht glaubwürdig: Argumentation und Reflexion bewegen sich auf einem dem Alter der Protagonistin nicht entsprechenden Niveau. Als Denkanstoss zu Diskussionen, die das Thema Tod in einen weiteren Rahmen stellen sollen, eignet sich Gaarders Roman aber trotzdem. (Quelle: R. Fassbind-Eigenheer, Und wenn sie nicht gestorben sind ..., Kommentierte Liste von Bilder-, Kinder- und Jugendbüchern sowie Fachliteratur für Lehrerinnen und Lehrer zum Thema "Sterben und Tod", Pestalozzianum Verl., Zürich, 1999)
