Jan 06, Nikki rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , philosophy. It includes stuff like the Ontological Argument, anyway. Like the other book I've read by Peter Cave, it's interesting and presents difficult puzzles quite flippantly.
It cross-references the puzzles, so if you're interested in a particular line of thought, you can follow it right through the book. Apr 15, LKM rated it it was ok. Was it me or were most of those puzzles neither puzzling nor perplexing?
Maybe I'm just not cut out for philosophy Anyway, it wasn't a bad book, and the writing style was in between annoying me and trying to be funny and sort of not managing, thus falling back on 'annoying me'. View 1 comment. Aug 11, Helen Yang rated it it was ok. Not that well-written or profound.

Apr 07, Chris Moorhead rated it it was ok. Some interesting bits, but wasn't altogether blown away. Jun 16, Solor rated it did not like it. Doc Cave manages to make those paradoxes even more puzzling than they actually are. I really couldn't follow most of his reasoning. May 23, Martin rated it it was ok.
Interesting ideas, however I did not enjoy the way the book was written. Nov 30, Jay Sejpal rated it it was ok. Apr 19, Chloe Crammond rated it it was ok. The setup of this book is: ' You think A don't you? Well what if you though B instead?! I hated how the author tried to be funny, pages were wasted whilst he wrote 'witty' metaphors that often fell flat.
I think it suffers from trying to make philosophy palatable for the masses - which it fails miserably at anyway. Either philosophy isn't for m The setup of this book is: ' You think A don't you? Either philosophy isn't for me, or this is a terrible example of what it out there.
Apr 24, Himanshu Karmacharya rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction. Interesting title but no so interesting contents. There are many interesting ideas in the book but there are generally more questions than answers and some unnecessary paradoxes as well which are very convoluted. Oct 31, KaLing Lee rated it it was ok. Not inspired. Mar 26, Rob rated it did not like it. Very poorly written - like someone took a bunch of chain letters, stapled them together, scrawled a few comments, and called it a book.
Jul 17, Nour Sharif rated it liked it Shelves: many-people , english , , serious-books. The book started really well, then it crashed downhill. The author is pretty hilarious.
Do Llamas Fall in Love?: 33 Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles
I enjoyed his writing style very much. The book speaks about paradoxes so it is fair to assume that the writer will speak from every possible angle, right? Well that was not the case. I felt that a lot of things have been left out. At the beginning, it was not as palpable as much as it was as I was reading further into it, but it reached a point where I could not ignore it anymore.
