In my experience readers either love Adams books or uickly put them down I for example uite literally worship the words Adams puts on the page and have read the Hitchhiker s Trilogy so many times that I have large tracts of it memorized But both my wife and father couldn t get past book one the former because she found it too silly and the latter because he found the writing to be about the author s personality than plot and character WhateverThe first three books in the Hitchhiker s Trilogy The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and Life the Universe and Everything are inspired lunacy The ideas plots puns jokes and phrases that fill their pages have influenced an entire generation of not only writers but people from all fields For instance the Babel Fish software that translates foreign websites for you is named after a species of fish that Adams created in book one you can find dozens of recipes online for Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters the chess computer Deep Thought that lost two matches to Gary Kasparov in 1989 was named after a computer in book one and seriously who hasn t heard that the answer to life the universe and everything is 42 For of these consult wikipediaorg s entry on The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Cultural References Chances are if you re reading these books for the first time you ll be surprised to see how many everyday things were named after Adams creationsThe books aren t of course without their problems Adams himself admitted that the Trilogy had and I paraphrase a long beginning a long conclusion and not much in the middle though I can t remember where I read that He was also regularly

summary ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Douglas Adams

Sh is a dead giveaway isn t it It could not have evolved by chance It proves you exist and so therefore by your own arguments you don t ED Oh dear says God I hadn t thought of that and promptly vanished in a puff of logic for instance on the planet earth man For instance on the planet Earth man always assumed that he was intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much the wheel New York wars and that he was intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much the wheel New York wars and on whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time But conversely the dolphins had always believed that they were far intelligent than man For Precisely The Same Reasons precisely the same reasons said Arthur this is obviously some strange usage of the word safe that I wasn t previously aware of Number 3 This gentleman DOES NOT appear in the book Seriously isn t the absence of thong boy reason enough to give this book a chanceNumber 2 North Korea s Kim Jong il hates this book and the enemy of my enemy is my friend And finallyNumber 1 Understanding the deep nuanced meaning at the heart of this novel will help better prepare you should you ever find yourself in a situation like this Don t wait until it s too latefor yourself and your loved ones read The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy today If through sharing the above bit of meaningless nonsense wisdom I have i introduced someone to a worthwhile read or iiprovided a means of dealing with the agonizing pain of having chunks of fur ripped from their body or iii shown people a picture of a man in a thong changing a tire or iv pissed off a despotic assclown or v simply provided a safety tip regarding avoiding unsolicited sexual advances in the guise of impromptu gift giving than I feel I have accomplished something I only did this because I had a collection of funny pics and couldn t figure out what else to do with them so I bootstrapped them in to a review I care35 stars 35 starsClever witty but not to me a laugh out loud sort of funnyIt is however an excellent little book about the absurdity of our place in the universe And definitely worth reading at least once The characters are all obnoxious and silly in the best way possible and so is the plot but for the life of me I can t think of a way to describe this thing without spoilers Psst be nice to miceIf you don t want to take the time to read the book The short answer is 42This was my 2nd time around with this story and I enjoyed the audiobook version read by Stephen Fry this time you can t really go wrong with that Another classic If you don t like this series you probably put your babel fish in the wrong hole You are the reason that human beings are only the third most intelligent species on earth behind mice and dolphins So long and thanks for all the fish It s not you it s me well maybe it s also youUnfortunately this book wasn t for me Some of the humor I liked but it was too absurd for me and it was too slow to really startI wish I had liked it as much as everyone else but it definitely didn t make it to my favorite books of all time listUPDATE I finally figured out what was my issue with this book There s a French movie called Rrrrrrr similar humour to Monty Pyton and I ve had way fun using the jokes out of context with friends than I did actually watching the movie Recommending it was always a bit weird because it s just an okay movie but the jokes are funny afterwards This summarizes exactly how I feel about this book What can I say I wish I had been in the movie although it was bad and I guess I should be happy about NOT being in it 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 new 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 there with him He s a tall guy but he ll make roomFor all his crazed un. Rld and the happy go lucky days that follow Join the gruesome two some of Arthur Dent and. Predictability Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns out it takes little than a moment s uestioning to burst our preconceptions at the seams yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonableIt is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laid out by Adams uips and absurdities His approach is much personable and less embittered than Dawkins which is why I think of Adams as a better face for rational materialism which is a polite was of saying atheism Reading his books it s not hard to see that Dawkins is tired of arguing with uninformed idiots who can t even recognize when a point has actually been made Adams humanism however stretched much further than the contention between those who believe and those who don tWe see it from his protagonists who are not elitist intellectuals they re not even especially bright but damn it they re trying By showing a universe that makes no sense and having his characters constantly uestion it Adams Is Subtly Hinting That subtly hinting that is the natural human state and the fact that we laugh and sympathize shows that it must be trueIt s all a joke it s all ridiculous The absurdists might find this depressing but they re just a bunch of narcissists anyhow Demanding the world make sense and give you purpose is rather self centered when it already contains toasted paninis attractive people in bathing suits and Euler s Identity I say let s sit down at the bar with the rabbi the priest and the frog and try to get a song going Or at least recognize that it s okay to laugh at ourselves now and again It s not the end of the worldIt s just is a joke but some of us are in on it I am not one of those who think this is the best book ever written It does not affect me on any deep emotional level and this ind of uirky sci fi comedy is just not really my thing However that being said Adams has some of the best uotes EVER not all of these are from this exact book In the beginning the Universe was created This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move For instance on the planet Earth man had always assumed that he was intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much the wheel New York wars and so on whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water
