I was disappointed by this book. The previous Hitchhiker’s books set a very high bar, and the humor in this one falls flat for me. Additionally, the seemingly constant “guide note” interjections are just plain annoying. Overall, I didn’t like this one.
It turns out I was confused when I said that So Long and Thanks For All the Fish was the last Hitchhikers Guide book. There is one more, Mostly Harmless. This book wasn’t as good as the others to be honest, it felt disjointed and I ended up disappointed by the ending. Then again, it was still quite funny and I didn’t hate the book. It just wasn’t as brilliant as the others.
This is the final book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide trilogy, and to be honest I think this one is better than the third book. I enjoyed it, and I think the real strength of the book is that it doesn’t try to hard to be a sequel.
Another classic from the trilogy of four. I’d always known that Cricket was somehow evil.
Another classic. This book is probably a little better than The Hichhiker’s Guide because it doesn’t have to spend so much time explaining the background to the story. It is a very fast read, just like the other book, and I enjoyed it.
Ok, so this is a classic. I hadn’t read it in years though, and it’s still awesome. Loved it. Things to note that I hadn’t thought of before — “SubEtha” is talked about a lot, that probably explains “SubEtha Edit” which is an editor I have used in the past; the term “Googleplex” is used in the book, its also the name of the campus I work on; I love the idea of depressed computers, I should see if I can whip one up.
