N my throatSo why is that important Because I m afraid that was my reaction to this omnibus edition of the five books in The Hitchhiker s Trilogy I liked The Hitchhiker s Guide To The Galaxy a lot Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time but ue to than a few amazing coincidences they survived the estruction of planet Earth and with the help of The Guide they set off to see what they would be able to o with themselves next I laughed I congratulated myself on having just bought a brand new towel and I wondered if perhaps Divine Beauty during my long ago first reading this was where I picked up my fondness for the number 42 I also sent out telepathic apologies for all the mice I have suished over the yearsThe next book The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe was still entertaining but I had the feeling that Adams was trying too hard to be clever here and those strange yet wonderful coincidences began to appear too regularly Iid not like this one nearly as much as I expected too but I still wanted to see what Ford and Arthur would Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone do next so I kept goingI got stuck with Life The Universe And Everything Same reasons as I just mentioned and on top of that the characters were all separated at one point so we had to start jumping not only through time and space but from point of view to someone else s point of view and that Trying Too Hard thing showed up even as well I started to skim Never a good sign I kept skimming never really paying enough attention to find out what happened to ouraring Down to the Sea in Ships duo and I must admit Ion t really care any I have at least 42 other books I want to read so I m throwing in the towel on this one Just brilliantSo clever and original and funnySorry I Wife by Wednesday (The Weekday Brides, did not read this when I was a teenager asonly now I realise why all my friends were talking about it This mammoth of a book was a hell of an undertaking After being harassed into reading it for 25 years I have to say I am glad Iid it but gladder it s over and I can now read something I truly want toand something not set somewhere along the spacetime continuumI found there to be constant peaks and troughs some chapters or parts were brilliant and others were laborious to get through I Dog Years did have some significant and glorious naps while I read this and every time I thought I would just give it up it got better again Then when I noticed how much into it I was itipped and was simply ridiculous to the point of annoying me and toying with the idea of throwing it out the window or at the tvEveryone goes on about how genius it is the hum Well that was an adventureOverall I really enjoyed this series and it was fun having all five books in one large collection Douglas Adams has such an effortless writing style with easily added humour I never felt bored reading this series and I can t say that I ve ever read anything like it Marvin the paranoid android was a highlight for me but all of the characters were fun in their own ways I Chain of Fire didn t love the last two books as mu.
