I read the trilogy ten years ago after Peter Jones (the Voice of the Book in the radio series) died. I found the first two books hilarious, and at times inspired but Adams seemed to lose his way after that and the final book was a mistake. All in all, not nearly as good as it's made out to be, and the less said about the film, the better.

I read this because it sometimes appears on "best books" lists. I found it incredibly boring until the fourth part (So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish), which fourth part was funny and had some semblance of being connected with some reality. Overall, I found reading this an awful waste of time, and I was till I read the fourth part going to give it one-half star, but decided to be generous and give it a whole star becaus of the humor in the fourth part.

Excellent book, though diminishing returns if you try to read it straight through. The books get redundant but if you read them with long intervals in between, much better.

Mr Adams just turns loose his crazy mind. and you just have to hold on and go with him.
