Review: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Absurd. A big part of the perspective is that random things happen that don't make sense, are unpredictable and unstoppable. Like a post-modern, he denies meaning or purpose can be found. This connects with his repeated, offhanded assertions of our evolution from the slime.
In spite of the above, it was laugh-out-loud funny in parts. Monty Python-esque. I could tell he was British by the sense of humor.
Can't really recommend it, except as a blow-off-steam, change of pace kind of book. I'm on vacation, so...
