    The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes , I knew this to be true and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill treated creature Adams has always been, to me, to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams, and, luckily for us, he doesn t seem to mind if you lie there with him He s a tall guy, but he ll make room.For all his crazed unpredictability, Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns out it takes little than a moment s questioning to burst our preconceptions at the seams, yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonable.It is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laid out by Adams quips and absurdities His approach is much personable and less embittered than Dawkins , which is why I think of Adams as a better face for rational...

    Another classic If you don t like this series, you probably put your babel fish in the wrong hole You are the reason that human beings are only the third most intelligent species on earth behind mice and dolphins So long, and thanks for all the fish

    In my experience, readers either love Adams books or quickly put them down I, for example, quite literally worship the words Adams puts on the page, and have read the Hitchhiker s Trilogy so many times that I have large tracts of it memorized But both my wife and father couldn t get past book one the former because she found it too silly, and the latter because he found the writing to be about the author s personality than plot and character Whatever.The first three books in the Hitchhiker s Trilogy The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and Life, the Universe and Everything are inspired lunacy The ideas, plots, puns, jokes, and phrases that fill their pages have influenced an entire generation of not only writers, but people from all fields For instance the Babel Fish software that translates foreign websites for you is named after a species of fish that Adams created in book one you can find dozens of recipes online for Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters the chess computer Deep Thought that lost two matches to Gary Kasparov in 1989 was named after a computer in book one and seriously, who hasn t heard that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42 For of these, consult wikipedia.org s entry on The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Cultural References Chances are, if you re reading these books for the first time, you ll be surprised to see how many everyday things were named after Adams creations.The books aren t, of ...

    What does Kim Jong Il, a thong wearing mechanic and this missing link furry fellow have to do with The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy you owe it to yourself and your family to find out With the plethora of wonderful reviews already written for this book by my fellow GRs, I decided instead to provide some helpful, practical advice on why reading this book might benefit my fellow goodreaders Therefore, as both life management tool and a safety warning, I have compiled my Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Read Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy . Number 5 It s a pleasant diversion to keep your mind occupied and pass the time while you are getting electrolysis to remove those areas patches blankets of unwanted hair Yikes, somebody please get that man a Klondike Bar Number 4 The book is smart, funny, well written and full of wonderful commentary on the human condition and clever humor The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don t You know, said Arthur, it s at times like this, when I m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I d listened to what my mother told me when I was young Why, what did she tell you I don t know, I didn t listen Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have...

    I am not one of those who think this is the best book ever written It does not affect me on any deep emotional level and this kind of quirky sci fi comedy is just not really my thing However, that being said, Adams has some of the best quotes EVER not all of these are from this exact book In the beginning the Universe was created This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much the wheel, New York, wars and so on whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons The Guide says there is an art to flying , said Ford, or rather a knack The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss A common mistake that people make wh...

    It s not you, it s me well maybe it s also you.Unfortunately this book wasn t for me Some of the humor I liked but it was too absurd for me and it was too slow to really start.I wish I had liked it as much as everyone else but it definitely didn t make it to my favorite books of all time list UPDATE I finally figured out w...

    Please, before anything DON T PANIC.This review is harmless, well mostly harmless.I think that one of the things that one has to keep in mind while reading this book is that it was written in 1979 Having this important factor in perspective, it s quite astonishing the vision of Douglas Adams, the author, presenting a lot of visionary elements, starting with the very book inside the book , I mean The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, since it s presented as an electronic book which now it s a very common way to read a lot of books now Also, he mentioned stuff like touch sensitive screens that yet again, it s now something introduced in our daily lives Science Fiction, the good science fiction is defined by being visionary in the moment to be published and a fact, years later Just like Verne s work predicting events like space rockets and nuclear submarines The President of the Universe holds no real power His sole purpose is to take attention away from where the power truly exists Obviously, beside the mesmering tecnology stuff that he predicted, the signature style here is his remarkable sense of humor, SMART sense of humor In literature and pop culture in general, there were been unforgettable examples of computers like the cold HAL from 2001 A Space Odyssey and the noble K.I.T.T from Knight Rider, al...

    What can I say I wish I had been in the movie, although it was bad and I guess I should be happy about NOT being in it.

    I hated this book It was required in one of my English Lit classes in college The time spent reading this book is time that I will never get back I think this book may have shortened my life it was such a waste of time.
