|Hector and the Search For Happiness|
"The basic mistake people make is to think that happiness is the goal"
By luck, I found the book available at the library yesterday! Yayy!!! I started reading it last night at 9pm. I thought I would read it for a while as I was not sure if the book was interesting or not. However, to my surprise, once I read the fourth chapter, I started liking it and hoped to finish reading it by that night, which I did!!! - I read in in three-hour time – including jotting down valuable lesson’s time into my journal book ;)
You can read the outline of the story here. They even made a movie. I would not repeat about the outline of the story, but what I wanted to convey here was actually I enjoyed reading this book very much!
First, it was written in such simple English, which everyone with Basic English knowledge would be able to read and understand it. Second, it was written based on the experience, which was translated into a very logical thinking to understand happiness. Third, there was some kind of comedy behind that could make you smile when reading it. And most importantly, there were many lessons learnt about happiness that Hector found out from his journey, which would be useful to all of us!!!
If you asked me what kind of book that I loved reading? This book would be one of them! A practical guide and story, and there would be place for us to contemplate as well, to see how far we were with the situations, with happiness itself! You could recollect back the memories and happening from your past lives, and looked back on what kind of attitude that you chose to do in order to overcome the unhappiness in your life.
Oh my!!! I would recommend all of you to read this. Perhaps not everyone would think like me or useful as what I think it’s useful for me. But seriously, it’s one of the books that you should read under your MUST-READ list this year :)
Let the curiosity kills the cat and let you find out more by yourself. I can’t wait to read his other book: Hector and the Secrets of Love and Hector and the Search for Lost Time. Hope it will be as interesting as this one!! ^^
