Half-Life

Here in the US (well, here to me; not all of you blog readers are “here”
!), we have The Peanuts Guide to Life, a 128 page book of philosophy pulled from the strips (which I reviewed.) It turns out that in England, they have twice the book, each only half as philosophical. Yes, they’re cutting it into to two books, Peanuts Guide to Life: Book 1 and Peanuts Guide to Life: Book 2.

Meanwhile, I’m a little happy collector guy. I finally completed my set of the Latin edition of the Peanuts Philosophers set, a series of small hardcover strip reprints from Hallmark put out in 1968. Of course, I completed it in one of the most frustrating ways – collected 3 of the 4 volumes, looked for the last (Carolini Brown Sapientia) for years, and then found it as part of a complete set for sale on eBay. But at least the set cost less than I would’ve been willing to pay for that fourth book alone; in fact, I got the set plus two English language Philosophers to boot. And all four combined are about as long as the US edition of Peanuts Guide to Life.

More info on the translated Peanuts Philosophers can be found on the AAUGH.com guide’s U.S. translations page.
