Kind of crazy... but a fun read nonetheless. Douglas Adams has a way of writing nonsensical things in a way that makes them amusing, but this in no way compares go the wonderfully entertaining Hitchhikers series. Richard is not really a character that I loved. Dirk thinks too highly of himself and the final solution seemed too simple and easy in my opinion. However, Reg is an adorable old man, even if a little loony.
I guess the ending really felt like a bit of a let down after I had found all of the rest quite funny.
I'll read the second one now because I'm one of these people who like to complete the series.
