I did read "Sophie's World" when I was in high school, and I thought it wasn't so interesting. In particular, I didn't get the metafictional ending at all - I understood it, but it seemed put-on and unwarranted.

I don't remember much of what I thought about the rest of the book, so I probably assimilated it into the gestalt of my history-of-philosophy knowledge without much more.
