    Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident.Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary.

    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    As the world's most rabid Douglas Adams fan, I was horrified to learn that Eoin Colfer had blasphemously been asked to extend the sacred Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Thus, I went into this book with the most biased opinion imaginable, mostly to see just how bad of a cock-up it was going to be. Instead of finding the voluminous reasons to hate this novel which I fully expected, I discovered a wonderfully written, lovingly crafted story full of the same wit and charm we loved so much in Adams. Colfer has removed himself nearly entirely, channeling Adams from beyond the grave more perfectly than I would have assumed possible. The respect he has given to the author in doing so has not gone unnoticed by this reader. Well done sir. Very well done indeed.

Ruled by a brutal class called the Styx, "The Colony" has not changed in a hundred years. Into this dark and mysterious place go Will and his friend Chester, unsure what they will find and oblivious to the dangers ahead. Before long their extraordinary adventure unearths a terrible secret - one that may cost them their lives.

    "Great! Wonderful!"
    Overall

    I took a chance with this one as the other critics didn't have much to say, and I am glad I did! Great story, wonderful characters and an intriguing adventure. I haven't read through a book this fast since the Harry Potter novels. I simply couldn't put it down. Although a hidden world beneath our feet is a common theme, the author doesn't rely on that alone to keep our interest. The story that happens there is much more intriguing and captivating than the surroundings. A fun, adventurous romp. Highly recommend to children and adults alike.
