16 year-old Eirik is taking the train from Bodø to Oslo and the day following his arrival, he will be taking a biology exam that he is dreading.
Eirik’s journey is a very strange one. An old man also boards the train and, together, the two of them travel through four millenniums. Charles shows Eirik the strangest life forms. The evolution of life begins…

It is important that books like these are published, for they are excellent keys to - and raisers of - interest for science and further learning.
The book is of sorts a lovely combination of the movies Back to the Future, the deep sea thriller The Abyss and Jurassic Park. This is the Sophies World of Biology, and since it is just 153 pages - anyone can get through it.
