Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Utterly charming…Hector and the Search for Happiness turns psychological research into a fast-paced, enchanting story. Lelord himself is a psychiatrist, and his interest in the human mind is infectious.” BookPage
“Intelligently naïve.” Marie Claire
“His observations result in keen nuggets for attaining joy in life. James Clamp speaks to the story’s childlike quality, imbuing Lelord’s brief sentences and basic vocabulary with profundity. Clamp is in tune with the author’s often-humorous style and astutely gives each sentence its lighthearted essence. Somehow this makes this novel all the more enchanting and enables the listener to focus on Hector's insights as each new gem is revealed.” AudioFile
