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, the author, presenting a lot of visionary elements, starting with the very book inside the book , I mean The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, since it s presented as an electronic book which now it s a very common way to read a lot of books now Also, he mentioned stuff like touch sensitive screens that yet again, it s now something introduced in our daily lives Science Fiction, the good science fiction is defined by being visionary in the moment to be published and a fact, years later Just like Verne s work predicting events like space rockets and nuclear submarines The President of the Universe 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 UPDATE I finally figured out what was my issue with this book There s a French movie called Rrrrrrr similar humour to Monty Pyton and I ve had way fun using the jokes out of context with friends than I did actually watching the movie Recommending it was always a bit weird because it s just an okay movie but the jokes are funny afterwards This summarizes exactly how I feel about this book The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy 1 , Douglas AdamsThe Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy is a comedy science fiction series created by Douglas Adams The broad narrative of Hitchhiker follows the misadventures of the last surviving man, Arthur Dent, following the demolition of the planet Earth by a Vogon constructor fleet to make way for a hyperspace bypass 2016 1386 207 9789647822336 20 1394 205 9786002292902 2001 2009 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.
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 the former because she found it too silly, and the latter because he found the writing to be about the author s personality than plot and character Whatever. The first three books in the Hitchhiker s Trilogy The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and Life, the Universe and Everything are inspired lunacy The ideas, plots, puns, jokes, and phrases that fill their pages have influenced an entire generation of not only writers, but people from all
