    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 D

    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 pl

    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 an

    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 ha

Hitchhiker's Guide MOBI #244 At Hitchhiker's Guide Five Complete PDF last in paperback in one complete volume here are the five novels from Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker The Ultimate Kindle series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the GalaxySeconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway Arthur Dent Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide PDFEPUB #227 is saved by Ford Prefect a researcher for the revised Guide Together they stick out their thumbs to Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide Five Complete PDF the stars and begin a wild journey through time Ultimate Hitchhiker's G OK Where do I start with this one It s a doozyLet 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 euivalent of juggling chainsaws You read it through the first time and you have no freaking clue how he did that with those words OK we got that out of the way How bout the story now Sure that sounds good NickThere is no plot For all of you who need one I m very very sory But frankly it s better that way Life doesn t have a plot right You just sort of muddle through your week doing the best you can with what Life can throw at you Well that s the point with this He takes the most regular guy the guy you d like to hang out with someone decent that you can introduce to your sister And then Adams throws him out into space and just sees what happensCertain parts of this book especially at the beginning are an adaptation of the BBC Radio programme aired in 1977 which was also written by Douglas Adams And he wrote H2G2 episodically but also with no clear goal in mind So when his characters come to a problem Adams had no idea what would happen to them until he wrote the solution Some rather large pieces of the story stuck in H2G2 this way This is most true in the earlier books in the Trilgy yes it s five books in a series The trilogy is inaccurately named when the writing is fresher and betterBut the best part of H2G2 and all of DNA s books frankly even Dirk Gently s Holistic Detective Agency is his worldview Basically it s all about taking what life gives you with patience humor and tea Yes he was an Atheist Yes I m a Christian whose favorite thinkerwriterguy was an Atheist Calm down calm down and he disliked people using ideas and beliefs as a crutch This is the part where it s hard to really write a coherent review for me because so many loved ones of mine hi Mom and Dad would see this as a Very Bad Idea So why don t you shoot me an email and we can have a discussion about it Maybe sit down and have some coffee and some nice nosh and chat You ll get and better ideas out of me that way Anyways I ve just lost my train of thought so I ll just say you ll love the part about the Vogon poetry And H2G2 is an inaccurately named trilogy because it is composed of five books I recommend reading them all at once even though there s no plot and things in one book will sometimes contradict things in another Anyways this trilogy is still one of my favorites
