  1. I would recommend H. Murakami-a series of 4 books: “Listen to the wind song”, “Pinball 1973”, “Sheep Hunting”, “Dance, Dance, Dance”. They are not exactly about the “hero's path”, but they are also very exciting.

  2. “Heinrich von Ofterdingen” by Novalis is the perfect answer to your request. The main character is a young man who pursues his dream-a magical blue flower that appeared to him in a dream. Of course, he is not chasing a plant, the blue flower is a collective image, it combines both life's purpose, love, and the purpose of his, the hero's, existence in general. Heinrich embarks on his first journey, exploring the world, acquiring new knowledge, meeting interesting people and himself. I warn you right away, the work is not simple, it contains many incomprehensible passages written in metaphorical language (Klingsor's fairy tale, for example), sometimes the characters go too deep in their reasoning, and the reader becomes bored. Some of the points may seem ridiculous and ridiculous to you, but the whole idea of the book is so deep and serious that modern researchers can not fully interpret it. In general, this work resembles one big adventure fairy tale (which could have been even bigger if Novalis had managed to finish the second part), in the plot of which smaller fairy tales are artfully interwoven. It is worth reading not so much for the sake of amusement, but for the sake of enlightenment and self-education, because it is one of the most iconic works of German Romanticism.
