Monday Book Review - Happiness

Welcome to Monday and this week's book recommendation.

HAPPINESS by Will Ferguson


I bought this book in September, at the Word on the Street festival in Saskatoon. In fact, I bought three of Will Ferguson's books. Why? Because he did a reading and an interview and was so funny and charming I just couldn't resist. And I'm glad I didn't. Happiness is the first I've had a chance to read and it does not disappoint. It's fabulous!

What is it that all people want? Of course, there's the usual culprits; money, possessions, etc. But deep down what everyone really wants is happiness.And what if there was a book that could give it to you? A self help book that actually worked? It would be wonderful, yes? Wrong. This is the story of a self help book that worked and in the process set off the apocalypse.

It's funny and witty, with a lovable main character you can't help but root for. The writing is superb, and of course the plot is exceptionally original. It's an amazing book. Definitely give this a read.
