    Story
    (268)

    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"

    If you could sum up The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul in three words, what would they be?

    Absurdity Making Sense


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dirk Gently's unique stance on life.


    What about Douglas Adams’s performance did you like?

    He inhabits this character, and makes me believe it's him to some extent... Arthur was him too, but less obviously so.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lot's of laughs all the way through... too many to single out one.


    Any additional comments?

    I was led to the Dirk Gently saga via my love of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Finding out Mr. Adams himself narrated this one made it an obvious choice. It does not disappoint, and hearing him narrate Dirk tends to make me believe he is significantly closer to his true voice than Arthur Dent. The main difference being that Arthur has no idea why the world is out to get him, but Dirk has a pretty good idea...

    I haven't finished the book yet (about 60% through) but it's already repaid me in absurd fun!
