I read this book because who could resist a Hitch Hiker's Guide book written by Colfer? I am a huge fan of Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl books and some of his brilliance does shine through in this book, but it did set me up for some disappointment too.

I think the things that annoy me about Douglas Adams' style were magnified in this book. Colfer does an awesome job of recreating the feel of Adams' writing, and in the case of the actual prose he improves on it (in my opinion), but the constant interruptions of the Guide were extremely annoying. It was a fast and easy read and the actual story had me gripping the edge of the book, but the Guide was so intrusive and irrelevant to the story that I am giving this three stars.
