Hector & the Search for Happiness - François Lelord
The second book in this apparent trilogy was yet another of my Borders Last Days Sale finds, so I had to read this one to clear that one off my TBR pile. This little book is something of a philosophical parable type story about happiness, and an exploration of why so many people these days seem to be unhappy, even though many people live comfortable lives. The titular Hector, a psychiatrist, travels around and has adventures, all the while musing on happiness. At times I thought this book overly simplified things, but all in all it was a usually lighthearted take on modern life with some satirical jabs here and there.
