The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, is a great book. It’s funny, and full of sarcasm and science fiction. A great thing about it is that it allows you to just read it. Until the later books, when it gets a lot more confusing, (So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish, anyone?) there’s no time-traveling tangle, multiple dimension mix-up, or child confusion. And thank goodness for that, because there’s a whole lot going on.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is such a funny and sarcastic book that I’ve read it and the sequels 4 times. The humor, and the great quotes that come with it, are my favorite parts of the book. And, really, who couldn’t love Adams’ humor?
The characters are incredibly strange, have surprisingly detailed stories, and jump to life on the page. Adams nails human nature and all the idiosyncrasies of humans. Though there are lots of characters, they’re all linked together in one way or another, which is pretty darn awesome.
Overall, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is an incredibly great book, and I urge, no, force you to read it and all five in the series. In closing, 42.
