    There has never been another writer quite like Douglas Adams; witty, funny and brilliantly eloquent on a gargantuan number of topics. The Salmon of Doubt brims with the Adams trademarks: thought-provoking, silly and insanely original writings in an all-new never-before-published collection. For the millions of readers who expressed their grief and shock at his untimely death, this is it: his final book and our last chance to see new work from an acknowledged comic genius of our time.

    Carla says: "Last Chance to Read.."
    "Alas poor Douglas..."
    Overall

    The true genius of Douglas Adams wasn't in his writings, such as the inaptly named Hitchhiker's Trilogy or Dirk Gently. His genius was in how he viewed the world.

    While this book is simply a compilation of articles, speeches, and other odds and ends - it shows you who the man Douglas Adams was - and not just who the writer was....

    A wonderfully moving, humorous, thought provoking book.

    Watch out - the Earth just fell into a dark sun's orbit! Or maybe you'd rather visit a theme park called Hell? These are just two of the strange and unnerving tales you'll find in this collection of great science fiction and fantasy stories.

    Noah says: "Cute stories, clunky format"
    "Vanni Fucci . . ."
    Overall

    Without a doubt - this book is worth "the price of admission" purely for "Vannic Fucci is Alive and Well and Living in Hell" - a tongue planted firmly in cheek look into a morning religious talk show.

    "Vanni Fucci gave God the fig... twice."

    Pure brilliance!
