Druss  (stansnig) | 2 comments Yes. So-so attempt. Better I feel if it had been left alone.

Agreed there. The least enjoyable of all of the series.

I agree. I didn't like the Mostly Harmless at all and i had to force myself to finish the last one, a shame it didnt make justice to the first books :(

and i agree wirh you guys, mostly harmless was poor, i loved so long and thanks for alll the fish but mostly harmless couldn't cope with the rest, shame really as i am yet to find another book such as the hitchikers series

Micke Nimell (nimell) | 3 comments I didn't mind Mostly Harmless. It was ok.
Adams last book, The Salmon of Doubt still kinda felt like his writing style but lacking that final knotting together at the end.
The Douglas Adams-feel was definitely lacking in the Sixth book. It was good but not the same as the other five books.

If you liked H2G2 I recommend the Dirk Gently-books

Same here. I'm currently reading it and I do like it. Of course it's not like the rest of the trilogy but it's funny and sarcastic.. I didn't expect anything more...

Sydney Baker I read the 6th book. I am glad I read it just for the sake of saying I read it, but it was certainly not my favorite and not at all like the Adams books. I don’t consider it cannon to the series. I consider it more like fan fiction. Like a possibility of what happened to the characters rather than what actually happened to the characters.

Same here. Even Starship Titanic felt more like an Adams book than this 6th book.

Pragya (wonko_the_sane) | 1 comments it's a better attempt than the cursed child but still would love to believe there's no sixth book
