Huge Douglas Adams fan...never played the game. Didn't really care for the beginning of the book at all...but once got through a few chapters it began to pick up. If you like the Douglas Adams style and books this should be a one to pick up for the collection.
My first exposure to Starship Titanic was the PC Software version, and loved the game so much I purchased the audio books. The story is a first-person, nonsensical yet wildly fun tale where the storyteller ends up on a ship of gigantic proportions built by an human-like race hurtling through space. Lots of comedy, mystery, and drama as the story-teller works his (and your) way through discovering why things are not as they should be with the ship. Why did it take off? Where is it headed? Who is at the helm? And where is everyone? Great fun.
It's been a while since I read it, but I remember there being some language and suggestive dialog.
This was an okay book. I expected it to be hilarious, but it wasn't. Funny things happened, and it was good for a few laughs, but that was about it. The story was interesting, and it was a quick and easy read. I'm glad I read it, but I probably wouldn't read it again.
