  1. The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes , I knew this to be true and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill treated creature Adams has always been, to me, to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams, and, luckily for us, he doesn t seem to mind if you lie [...]

  2. Just as funny as advertised, but I made the mistake of reading the collection of all five novels, and what s trying to read them all in one go Once I got about halfway through Life, the Universe, and Everything, it had stopped being funny and had gotten a little confusing Adams is excellent at humor, not so much at plot.So, for clarification 5 stars for the original Hitchhiker s, 4 for The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and 3 stars for the others.

  3. OK Where do I start with this one It s a doozy.Let s first of all say that I think this is one of the best uses of the English language It s right up there with, well, anything else I mean, just read the sentences He is a lot like Tolkien, in that he makes the words themselves the art But where Tolkien will take English and make it into a lush, broad canvas, Mr Adams turns English into a plaything Let s put my last sentence another way The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy is the literary equival [...]

  4. So my journey with The Ultimate Hitchhiker s Guide to Galaxy finally came to an end What an enjoyable journey it was The characters, the stories, the writing and the essence of Douglas Adam s work it was fantastic I had heard a lot about this cult series and finally got to read it thanks to a friend A very big thank you to you indeed This book contains the entire Hitchhiker s Guide to Galaxy series by Douglas Adams i.e 5 novels and 1 story 1 The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy 2 The Restaurant [...]

  5. It s that book you pick up and feel obligated to love, if only to escape grievous fan persecution Well Here goes Let s start with the humour Yes, it s everything that humour should be For a while, you are oh so amused and impressedbut then you weary of being so amused Akin to being kept on the edge of your seat for a good few hours something s going to get sore It s just such a strain I skipped ten or so pages near the middle but I m sure those ten pages were, like the rest of the book, terribly [...]

  7. I definitely am overdue to reread this comic scifi classic I remember laughing all the time at the quirky universe that Adams conjured up, but admit to have forgotten many of the detailson my 2018 TBR

  8. I first read what was then the Hitchhiker s Guide trilogy in high school I remember sitting on the bleachers in the gym reading while other people played volleyball or some other indoor sport and being swept away on a rollicking ride across the universe, and even to its end Much fun than volleyball You brought much joy and laughter to my life, Douglas Adams So long and thanks for all the fish.

  11.

  12. The coolest five book trilogy ever Seriously some of the best and original science fiction ever written, and it just happens to be hilarious Not too many people have the balls to write a trilogy that starts off with the absolute destruction of earth for no other reason than the fact that it was in the path of a hyperspace highway that was soon to become obsolete with the advent of the improbability drive Speaking of which, the technology in these books is easily imaginative than anything that G [...]

  13. One of the funniest books, and one of my favourite, ever Read it now it s got good writing, great jokes and the meaning of life thrown in What could you want

  15. Douglas Adams is either the craziest, most creative and funniest author I ve ever read, or he s just on crack Or maybe it s a little of both.The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy and the books that follow it are all completely insane and impossible to summarize, so I m not even going to try They re books that can t be taken too seriously, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy the portrait of insanity Adams so expertly paints.

  17. I think after having made little to no progress in the past about 9 months it s best if I just give up even pretending I m still reading this book.The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy was the book I really wanted to read classic English comedy Bring it on I enjoyed that book if I was rating this alone it would be a good 4 star book it was funny and inventive with some great characters s the other books in this series that made it so difficult for me The second The Restaurant at the End of the Un [...]

  18. Why does British humor rely so much on the use of indifference Just something I ve noticed.So the Earth is destroyed In an indifferent manner, which makes it hi larious A bloke is saved and, unmoored in the Universe, is dragged through a series of droll hijinx One formulaic hijinx after another, which are really just vehicles for terribly self satisfied one liners And then the novel stops at a seemingly arbitrary point though I suspect it s actually the point of diminishing returns At around the [...]

  19. I was thinking about the radio version of this, which I heard scraps of at odd times when from time to time it was repeated One in particular stuck in my head which was that one of the characters was stuck on a planet in habited by particularly intelligent birds who had evolved out of the human population when their economy collapsed due to an excess of shoe shops I liked this because it reminded me of Bromley, which as a child to my mind had far too many shoe shops all of which it seemed I was [...]

  20. An astounding 4 star for this series.The satire in the first two books is just mind blowing Many a times I had to shut the book and laugh my heart out There were many comical events in this series that I thoroughly enjoyed The later books were not as good as the first two but I still found the story line and humor to be good The last book was definitely not the end of the series because the author died while writing the next one Sadly, it was not upto the standard set by Adams in previous instal [...]

  21. This review is for the first two books only.I have a confession to make I am allergic to sci fi The kind that has as its hero a humanoid who lives in 23345 AD on a dystopian red planet, where he must fight slimy insectoid aliens whose sole purpose in life is to lay and hatch their filthy eggs on human bodies The guy is barely human anyway, with half his face swathed in shiny robotic gear with glowing red eyes that look like the battery powered tip of my 10 year old s toy laser gun Or instead of [...]

  22. I give up I exclaimed this very proudly Just as proudly as Arthur exclaimed, I will go mad At the beginning of the third book I enjoyed the first two books and the beginning of the third but decided that I have nothing to gain from reading the rest of this series I was wrong If you are going to read Douglas Adams then my advice to you is to read them one book at a time and not in The Ultimate Hitchhiker s Guide I grew tired of Douglas Adams roundabout jokes that took on an identical spin by the [...]

  23. The Hitchhiker s Guide to the GalaxyWhen I was studying in college, the smart guys in my class used to read a particular kind of books Some of these books were The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien before it became a movie and was read by everyone else , novels by P.G.Wodehouse, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 2001 A Space Odyssey by Arthur C Clarke, One, Two, Three Infinity by George Gamov, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and Zen and the Art of Motocycle Maintenance by Robe [...]
