Very funny. Very fun. Do spend some time with this other character of Douglas Adams'. If you enjoyed Hitchhiker's Guide, you'll like this too.

This is a highly entertaining book by the author of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. There is a lot of similar humor in this book, covering a lot of new material.

It's refreshing to read Douglas Adams and his bizarre sense of story. From seemingly random story lines in the beginning, they all come together in the end...sort of. I'm not sure I understand it all, but time-travelling tends to do that to you. Anyway, a nice, funny, Douglas Adams read.

This story starts off on several tangents, then towards the last quarter of the book, braids together. It may be hard going at first, and I admit, I had to go back to re-read subtle clues I previously missed, but is a fine read. Douglas Adams not only wrote the Hitchhiker books, but he also wrote scripts for Tom Baker's Dr. Who.

This was a fun and yet, very weird book. I enjoyed the British humor. Doug Adams has a wild imagination!

I you think that the Hitchhiker series is far out, you havent read this book. Its so far out no one knows what it really is. Step aside, Twilight Zone this is the most convoluted sci-fi tale ever dreamed up. Adams makes Ray Bradbury seem like a novice. Im not sure who is the madder, Adams, or his publisher. This book has everything that makes no sense. The last page contains an ominous warning. Rather than say The End, it says to be continued. Makes the reader shudder, doesnt it?
