Review - The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Title: Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
Series:Hitchhiker Guide #1
Author: Douglas Adams
Genre: Science Fiction
Publisher: Del Ray
Release Date: January 1979
What is it About?
A man who is about to have his house torn down is taken by a friend and abducted into a space ship.
I saw the movie first so some the scenes where rememberable but like most books done by British author I do not get all the humor. I found this one harder to grasp at time then say a Terry Pratchett novel.
The stuff I found funny was the stuff that I already knew the punchline like the meaning of life answer. When I think about this book now there really isn’t much I like about it. The voices of the character in my head feel kinda of annoying.
I guess I am just not a fan of British humor.
