Hector and The Search for Happiness by Francois Lelord
A very interesting, deceptively simple book about happiness and the meaning of life. I very much enjoyed this novel, which is written by Hector as he takes time out from his job as a psychiatrist in order to attempt to discover a "cure" for his many patients who are unhappy for no discernible reason. The language is beautifully straightforward and easy to read whilst raising questions of psychology and challenging social assumptions as to what makes us happy. I would definitely recommend this book.
