it was ok

I picked this up because it was sitting on my kitchen table looking lonesome. It is the fourth book in the Hitchhiker's series but I have never read any of them.

I liked the narration and imgagination of Douglas Adams. But what I first thought was a comparison to Vonnegut soon became a contrast because Adams never goes far enough with a joke to make it as true and sad like Vonnegut can. He also reminded me of Tom Robbins, but without the caffeine.

I kept reading though, because the love story got my attention. I didn't laugh out loud until the very last page, which I guess is a pay-off. I'm not much interested to read the others in the series, instead I'll go back to Vonnegut or give another Robbins title a try.
