The Search After Happiness by Charlotte Brontë.


Title: The Search After Happiness.
Author: Charlotte Brontë.
Genre: Fiction, literature, short story, fantasy, adventure, mystery.
Country: U.K.
Language: English.
Publication Date: Written in 1829 (published 1969).
Summary: Written by Brontë when she was 13-years-old. A simple story about Henry O Donell, a nobleman, who journeys far from home in search of happiness. Though simple, the story provides readers with plenty of puzzles: just what was in the child's mind when she wrote this rather frightening tale? Was it simply an exercise in descriptive writing, or perhaps a simple story written to prove the dictum that happiness is to be found at home? But then who was the old man who disappeared across the skies in a chariot? What were the mysterious creatures who demanded that their suppliants should become slaves, and then released them from their promise? And what indeed had the Duke of Wellington and his sons to do with the adventures of O Donell?

My rating: 7.5/10
