Review: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy


By Douglas Adams

Recommend to Sci-fi lovers

I don’t know if I’m the best person review this book. I’m not usually a huge Sci-fi fan. I get bogged down in the made up names and get distracted by technology details that date the work. It was no different with this book.

The story follows a group of misfit intergalactic hitchhikers, who narrowly escape the destruction of earth by stowing away on one of the ships that has come to annihilate the planet. The story is high-jinx after that. The writing is quite funny, and the dialogue is witty. The plot was adventure/journey, but I wouldn’t say that anything was really accomplished. Like some Sci-fi novels it seemed to be a lighthearted vehicle for philosophical questions.

What are your thoughts, Prose Lovers? Anyone love this series? Let me know what you would like me to read, and check out my TBR for future reading updates.
