call it unique?

The book is science fiction, the scientific parts usually make no sense, and I was laughing every few pages :)


Such an amazing book! A quick, clever and hilarious read. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an imaginative story.

Oh the Style!

A must read for everyone who likes science fiction or humor, preferably both. Adams uses his brilliant style which allows for a deadly serious story in which every single element is pure humor. His characters have depth, and are so quotable. The description is rich, the world building superb – wonderful book.

great book

red it twice

one of my favorate books

Douglas Adams is an incredibly witty writer. He is also a brilliant performer, so I recommend listing to the books as he does the voice overs.

All the books in the series are great, but the first is by far my favorite.

Hilarious Science Fiction

This book is a hilarious science fiction adventure. The characters are ingenious, and Adams is great at making up hilarious settings for them to exist in. One of my favorite sci-fi/comedy books ever.
