Is it an audacious thing to say that Mr Douglas Adams is hit or miss Yes Well, not really audacious Good Here is a fun and I mean FUN book, rife with what is absurd and comical in certain sciences that dictate what the world is I know my math teacher in high school was mad about him And it does seem as though there is an intended niche audience already built for this type of literatureliterary than, say, Piers Anthony but not character driven, nor truly dearly dramatic Is it an audacious thing to say that Mr Douglas Adams is hit or miss Yes Well, not really audacious Good Here is a fun and I mean FUN book, rife with what is absurd and comical in certain sciences that dictate what the world is I know my math teacher in high school was mad about him And it does seem as though there is an intended niche au

I am a firm believer that a bit of British humor is good for the soulAnd I am quite American, in case you did not knowDon t you understand that we need to be childish in order to understand Only a child sees things with perfect clarity, because it hasn t developed all those filters which prevent us from seeing things that we don t expect to seeDouglas Adams has a highly quotable, laugh out loud writing style which I
Douglas Adams underated masterpiece leads Dirk Gently from a search for a missing cat to unlocking the secrets of time travel and saving the human race from total extinction I thought no one could write a better comic novel than The Hitch Hiker s Guide to the Galaxy until I first read this I ve subsequently re read this novel count
I discovered Douglas Adams by coincidence I found his book Last Chance to See, co written by Mark Cawardine, about animals near extinction and Douglas and Mark s trip around the world to see some of them, in a box with M ngelexemplare old books, sometimes not in top condition that are therefore sold at a reduced price His humour stood out even in the German translation and when I told a friend about it, she told me all about an odd sounding story about a guy hitchhiking across the galaxy I discovered Douglas Adams by coincidence I found his book Last Chance to See, co written by Mark Cawardine, about animals near extinction and Douglas and Mark s trip around the world to see some of them, in a box with M ngelexemplare old books, sometimes not in top condition that are therefore sold at a reduced price His humour stood out even in the German translation and when I told a friend about it, she told me all about an odd sounding story about a guy hitchhiking across the galaxy and something about the number 42 Since I ve always been an odd duck, I went and bought that book too in the English original this time and have read The Hitchhiker s Guide To The Galaxy once every year May 25th to be exact ever since.However, despite having heard of Dirk Gently too, I have never picked up these books, for some weird reason I m glad I rectified this now because although I LOVE Hitchhiker, this is actually better Douglas Adams has not just been a British auth
From the title you would think this is possibly about a detective agency Well there is an agency but they don t detect things in the normal matter You should probably guess that since it is a Douglas Adams book and when has he written anything really normal I mean that in the best way.Nope for this bookLet s think the unthinkable, let s do the undoable Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all There is craziness, absurdity, the intercon From the title you would think this is possibly about a detective agency Well there is an agency but they don t detect things in the normal matter You should probably guess that since it is a Douglas Adams book and when has he written anything really normal I mean that in the best way.Nope for this bookLet s think the unthinkable, let s do the undoable Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it a
I recently watched the pilot episode of Dirk Gently and loved it So, naturally, I picked up the book Now this order of doing things is often frowned upon by many people, including me, but sometimes things just happen The reason I m telling you this is that I was slightly let down by the book, having seen a version of Dirk Gently in action before reading about him There just wasn t enough of the detective in the book, while he both versions is such an interesting c
