Douglas Adams (DNA) is rightfully famous for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the galaxy and all its configurations. There are two novels introducing the incomparable holistic detective, Dirk Gently. One is The long, Dark Teatime of the Soul, a gem of a story that weaves together Adams' English dry wit, a murder mystery and the Norse gods mythology.
Who else would think of the fact that gods are immortal, but maybe in need of a rest home and linen sheets while hoping for a career in soft drink commercials?
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, of course and maybe a few of the Terry Pratchett Disk World novels.
Besides laughing out loud, you mean? The scene with the murdered man's son in the attic room is priceless.
If you like this novel, there is a good chance you will also love Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
Maybe I knew what had to happen. There were hints in the last three Harry Dresden novels. I am sure the readers of Jim Butcher novels would not let Harry rest in whatever configuration the author had left him. We needed Harry Dresden to be reborn. The Winter Knight served all just fine.
One thing that has happened to this reader is that I have lined up ALL the Harry Dresden novel and am listening to them again, in order. I am looking for the Gestalt that Jim Butcher, James Marsters and the listener, me, myself create when we get together. It will be awesome once I get a hold of that.
