Book Review: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

I actually read the film tie-in edition of this book, but practically ignored the photos and skipped the interviews and afterword, I’m afraid. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was originally published in 1979 but has remained a favourite of many people throughout the years. A lot of people will probably think of the famous film […]

Book Review: And Another Thing…

I adored the first couple of books in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams, and although this isn’t by the same author, I was still pretty excited to read it. Colfer has managed to capture the voice of Adams incredibly well, including the same nonsensical tone and randomness that made the first books […]

Book Review: Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless is the final book in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. It was originally mean to consist of only three books, but ended up far longer.

Book Review: So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish

This is the fourth book in Douglas Adam’s infamous The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. As is always the case, the first couple of books are definitely the best, but I always have to read the whole series after I start! So in this book, Arthur Dent returns to Earth alone – amazed to find that […]

Book Review: Life, the Universe and Everything

I loved the first two books in the Hitchhiker series, and had heard that the rest aren’t quite as good. I’m afraid I have to agree on that with this book, though it isn’t a bad book by any means. In this exciting novel from Douglas Adams, we find Arthur Dent where we left him – on […]

Book Review: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

This is the second instalment of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, which I’m absolutely in love with. This novel begins with the Heart of Gold being attacked by the Vogons. You know, as you do. Obviously, nobody on board wants to die (apart from, perhaps, the Paranoid Android). They don’t have much time, so Zaphod […]
