The Invoice

Accounting. What’s in your wallet? What makes you happy? Jonas Karlsson explores the subject of happiness in his novel titled, The Invoice. An entity named World Resources Distribution has sent invoices to every citizen. The amount due reflects an accounting of the individual’s experienced happiness quotient. The happier one’s life has been, the larger sum that is due. The protagonist in the novel has received a huge bill and he has no ability to pay the bill. When he protests the invoice, an examination of his life leads to a new computation, reflecting that his happiness has been so great that his invoice was originally too small, not too large. Readers of this novel will never again think of the cost of living in the same way. Most readers will also reflect on one’s own happiness long after the last page of the novel has been turned. I found this novel to be clever, thought-provoking and compact enough to read in one or two sittings, and I highly recommend it to any reader who enjoys a blend of creativity, humor and profoundity.
