Hector and the Search for Happiness, review: bleak and awful
Sign in. - H ector Simon Pegg is a sad psychiatrist, unable to take pleasure in his "satisfactory" life. He lives in a giant flat by the Thames, his girlfriend Rosamund Pike cooks, does the laundry and offers him mind-blowing sex.
So he decides to up and travel the world to try and find out what makes people happy. He comes across many different people from all walks of life and asks them the all-important question — what makes you happy? To know how he discovered them I encourage you to read the book or watch the movie adaptation which stars the brilliant Simon Pegg but in all I think that they help to sum up the notion of happiness and what happiness should mean to us — what do you think? I would love to make this journey -and have others share their vast knowledge -loving and learning, all in one fascinating trip. Life was intended to be touched. Interesting read, thanks for sharing! I think that these lessons are kind of basic, but the truth is that we often forget them… despite the fact that they are so basic!
