The universe is a joke. Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 (then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes), I knew this to be true--and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill-treated creature. Adams has always been, to me,
Another classic. If you don't like this series, you probably put your babel fish in the wrong hole. You are the reason that human beings are only the third most intelligent species on earth behind mice and dolphins. So long, and thanks for all the fish!
In my experience, readers either love Adams' books or quickly put them down. I, for example, quite literally worship the words Adams puts on the page, and have read the Hitchhiker's Trilogy so many times that I have large tracts of it memorized. But both my wife and father couldn't get past book one Leggi tutto
I am not one of those who think this is the best book ever written. It does not affect me on any deep emotional level and this kind of quirky sci-fi comedy is just not really my thing. However, that being said, Adams' has some of the best quotes EVER (not all of these are from this exact book): "In t Leggi tutto
It's not you, it's me... well maybe it's also you. Unfortunately this book wasn't for me. Some of the humor I liked but it was too absurd for me and it was too slow to really start. I wish I had liked it as much as everyone else but it definitely didn't make it to my "favorite books of all time" list! Leggi tutto
What does Kim Jong-Il , a thong-wearing mechanic and this missing link furry fellow have to do with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ? ...you owe it to yourself and your family to find out. With the plethora of wonderful reviews already written for this book by my fellow GRs, I decided instead Leggi tutto
Please, before anything... DON'T PANIC . This review is harmless, well mostly harmless. I think that one of the things that one has to keep in mind while reading this book is that it was written in 1979. Having this important factor in perspective, it's quite astonishing the vision of Douglas Adams, t Leggi tutto

What can I say? I wish I had been in the movie, although it was bad and I guess I should be happy about NOT being in it.
3.5 stars Clever & witty, but not (to me) a laugh out loud sort of funny. It is, however, an excellent little book about the absurdity of our place in the universe. And definitely worth reading at least once. The characters are all obnoxious and silly in the best way possible and so is the plot, but Leggi tutto
