    Kate Schechter would like to know why everyone she meets knows her name - and why Thor, the Norse god of thunder, keeps showing up on her doorstep. Dirk Gently, detective and refrigerator wrestler, can uncover the mystery, and only the absurdist wit of Douglas Adams can recount them with such relentless humor.

    Jackson says: "An Amazingly Perfect Story"
    "One of my favorites."

    Would you listen to The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul again? Why?

    Douglas Adams has such a unique point of view, I wish there were more Dirk Gently tales.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't choose my favorite character, I love them all. Kate is a great protagonist and Toe Rag is the perfect little troll.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing deep about this book, but very entertaining, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it more than once.

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    avid reader says: "Hours of enjoyable, fun listening"
    "Excellent story well read."
    Overall

    Four generations are linked in this engrossing tale, and I enjoyed all of the characters and places. The movement between times and places was disconcerting at first, but I shortly got used to the jumps. I was totally drawn into the story, it drove me to exercise more in order to listen more. I expect to listen again soon, I think even my husband will like this one so we'll listen on our next trip.
