Auf seiner Reise wird der junge Psychiater Hector zum Abenteurer des Herzens. Er spürt einem Professor nach, der das Geheimnis der Liebe entschlüsselt haben will. Dabei entdeckt er, wie kompliziert die Liebe sein kann: Kann man nicht für immer verliebt bleiben? Warum liebt manchmal der eine mehr als der andere? Und Hector entdeckt, dass allein die Liebe – für alle Zeit und wo immer wir leben – die Macht haben wird, unsere tiefsten Sehnsüchte zu stillen.

Mein zweites Buch, als erstes hatte ich "Hectors Reise" gelesen, in dem es um Glück ging. Das zweite Buch hat eine etwas schönere Geschichte, wobei ich bei dem Thema Glück deutlich mehr mitnehmen konnte als bei diesem. Wahrscheinlich verstehe ich zuwenig von der Liebe, als dass ich so begeistert von diesem Buch sein kann. Trotzdem ein schönes und kurzweiliges Buch für zwischendruch. ( )

In this book Hector the main character is sent by a large pharmaceutical company to find Professor Cormorant who has absconded with a promising love potion. While searching high and low around the world Hector contemplates the components of love and the effect these have not only on the general public but on his own relationships.
He discovers some universal truths about life and love along the way, mostly that love is complicated but essential. The simple tone of the work is refreshing and delightful. It's well observed, thoughtful and highly entertaining.
Thanks to Netgalley and Gallic Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Too didactic. Didn't finish. ( )

So far, I've read Hector and the Search for Lost Time (a book I found through a serendipitous adventure at the library). I likes that one so I thought I ought to read Lelord's other two books in the series.
