The Restaurant at the End of the UniverseNd of the Universe is kind of the continuing adventures of Arthur Dent Honestly while A Summer of Hummingbirds Love Art and Scandal in the Intersecting Worlds of Emily Dickinson Mark Twain Harriet Beecher Stowe and Martin Johnson Heade he s a focal point of book onee doesn t factor into the seuel as much This is about Zaphod Beeblebrox and Ford Perfect as well as the kitchen sink s worth of whatever zany ideas Douglas Adams wanted to throw into the works I say zany ideas as if they are a New Creative Collage Techniues haphazard careless collection of ramblings but Adams does actually stay on topic for much of the time That topic isumanity s futility We re a go nowhere race going nowhere fast Adams basically says we ve been given two million years worth of time to do
