I have just finished reading this little book. I just loved it, except he last page of the book.
Here is a description of the book: Hector and the Search for Happiness
This idea is so close to me, pack somethings and just go travelling. You can learn so much, when leave your every day life.
I love the list of happiness statements that Hector did:
And I have just noticed that also the movie have been made two years ago. I watched trailer, it looks like a nice movie.
But I didn't like the last few sentences of the book:
"... and he loved Clara more, too. An as a result, Clara became less interested in her meetings and stopped bringing work home at the weekends and began looking at babies when she saw them with their mothers in the street. And Hector noticed this and thought that one day he and Clara might get married, live happily and have many children."
I know that this is how majority of people imagine a happy life. Get married, have children, live happily ever after.
What about childless people like me?
I didn't let the ending of the book to spoil my evening. After all, it is not an author's fault that I am infertile.
It is my own job, to find my own version of living happily ever after (despite not having children).
