Overall, it's a good story. My complaint is that sometimes it really feels like it drags on and on and on and on... It doesn't flow the best and even with its humor, I did sometimes wonder why I was still reading this book. A lot of times, I had to wonder what the point of things were (which is probably the author's goal) and how many pages I had left before it was over. But, since I wanted to know what happens in the end, I kept going.

The entire series is absolutely fabulous. A must read for anyone remotely interested in either comedy or scifi.

While Douglas Adams' writing style is still enjoyable in this fourth book in the trilogy (yes, you read that right), he doesn't manage to be as funny as in the previous entries. I believe this is due to the fact that most of the story actually happens on Earth, as opposed to Arthur wandering around in space trying to negotiate his way through laugh out loud situations. There is also a serious lack of Marvin the robot (he only appears in one chapter). Overall, I still enjoyed reading it, but it didn't meet my expectations for the series.

Check out my extended review.
