it was ok
Recommended to Ryan by: hype

Since the original concept was intended to be listened to, I did so by audiobook. There are definitely many funny moments and memorable characters, but as a stand-alone story/novel, HG2TG did not leave me wanting to continue on to the next installment. In the end, I was not very attached to the characters or story. Again, there were some very funny moments, but the lack of an ending or a great cliffhanger likely brings my journey with this series to an end.

Quotes Ryan Liked

Douglas Adams
“The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, the effect of which is like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.”
