My mate, Hector!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hector and the Search for Happiness: Hector's Journeys 1 (Mass Market Paperback)
Hector is a real gem of a character, and this book is an easy-ride in the nicest, cuddliest kind of way... smooth prose and dry wit that translates beautifully. I bought this recently and have just ordered another copy as a birthday gift. It's not that it's an everyman story it's that it probably couldn't offend a soul and will most likely amuse and warm the hearts of most readers. And it's true, despite being a light read, it is thought provoking, and I found myself working through a few things as I went along, hard not to given the subject matter. But there's a light touch at work here and the humour is totally uplifting.
Though much deeper, I will also recommend,
Soothing Music for Stray Cats by Jayne Joso especially for those interested in psychology and how to deal with the heavier stuff in life.
