"Douglas Adams is a terrific satirist....He is anything but harmless." (The Washington Post Book World)
"Hitchhiker fans rejoice!...[Here's] more of the same zany nonsensical mayhem." (The New York Times Book Review)
I'm a Cardiac Anesthesiologist with two college aged children. I used 2 check my kid's books for appropriateness & now enjoy those books 2.
Hitchhiker is just plain fun. I loved the series when i was young. I read it in college, and again in Med school, and again when i started reading for pleasure again, and now I am going to listen to them all.
I cannot wait. I just wish Douglas was alive for more, but I am about to read Coffer's installment (or try) for a 6th book in the series.
it's been at least a decade or two since I've read the "trilogy" and I didn't know this last book existed. I'm glad a friend enlightened me, it was true to its nature and in keeping with the rest of the entertaining series. I saw Douglas Adams speak at my university in the early 90s, I'm glad I came in contact with him and his books. RIP Douglas!
While not the best of the series, as the fifth entry in the classic Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" Douglas Adams puts forward a excellent effort that continues the adventures decently. I recommend to those that have read the previous 4 installments.
I'm a software developer.
Having loved Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it's pretty obvious that only the first book is the hit. The rest are just 'eh'. There are funny moments sprinkled in, but Mostly Harmless really has nothing going on for any good reason.
This is a major departure from the style you'd expect from this series and on top of that, it doesn't offer anything to advance our characters storylines other than a dumb ending for the sake of an ending.
Martin Freeman is awesome though. I really wish he'd narrate more books.
I am a very intense kind of thinking person and have a hard time shutting down the brain at sleeping time. Reading this kind of novel is like a mini marathon for your mind. The words fly at you so fast there almost gibberish but Martin doesn't awesome job as you will could expect.
Douglas brings things back around but I'm really not sure what it was all about but this kind of story who cares it was fun.
Same O same O
One sitting? It could've given me a heart attack
This ain't literature it's just fun
