As much as I wanted to finish out this series, I just couldnt do it. After the first three stories, it really went downhill and I kept finding that I was having a better time daydreaming than paying attention to the story. I have too many books to read to waste my time on something, that I felt, was overly-hyped.
Adams quickly gets rid of the annoying Fenchurch and brings back the delicious humor, situations, and commentary that made the first couple of books in the trilogy delightful. Arthur finds himself in a parallel universe with no Earth and no Fenchurch, stuck on a planet as the official Sandwichmaker. Ford takes a trip to the office of the Guide and makes a frightening discovery that he, Arthur, and Trillian all set out to fix. Marvin is still dead, but Adams does offer us a robot who is the optimistic opposite of him, which is a fun meta-joke. It's a nice end to the trilogy, but doesn't quite reach the heights of The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
