So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish | Douglas Adams
Back on Earth with nothing more to show for his long, strange trip through time and space than a ratty towel and a plastic shopping bag, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription, the mysterious disappearance of Earth's dolphins, and the discovery of his battered copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy all conspire to give Arthur the sneaking suspicion that something otherworldly is indeed going on. . . . God only knows what it all means. And fortunately, He left behind a Final Message of explanation. But since it's light-years away from Earth, on a star surrounded by souvenir booths, finding out what it is will mean hitching a ride to the far reaches of space aboard a UFO with a giant robot. But what else is new? From the Paperback edition.

This is my favorite of all the “Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy“ books.
I know it kind of defies the whole travel the Galaxy and see the universe idea, but I love that Arthur is content and happy; that he found a like-minded being that likes him back. Call me a Romantic.

Honestly if you have not read these books; just go pick them up!
You'll laugh so hard... and if you don't what's wrong with you? 😬

TNG 2.19, #Manhunt, or “the one with the fish“, is one of the weaker season 2 episodes, but it marks the 2nd appearance of the fabulous and glorious Lwaxana Troi, Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed, played by the forever missed Majel Barrett.

Also, the one with the fish, so thank the world for all the fish!

I'm pretty stoked to have found this first edition copy for only $3 at HPB tonight. It's in amazing condition too! I wonder it's journey and how it ended up here?

wanderinglynn That‘s amazing! 🙌🏻 6mo

Much like Adams' other books in the series. Clever at moments, but the disjointed plot fraught with deus ex machinas (dei ex machina?) disguised merely as improbabilites doesn't exactly encourage much interest in continuing along the plot. But by golly, I'm gonna finish. So there.

Because I don‘t have enough unread books in my house, I bought more. $12 for these, how could I not buy them?! 😏🤓📚📚📚

Mamashep Of course you don‘t have enough unread books in the house - there‘s no such thing! 1y

Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

I needed a book to distract me and this did the job. It was great on audiobook and the story was the same blend of absurd and poignant that I remember! I‘m calling this a classic of genre fiction for #readharder2018 unless I actually get to Dune this year...

Less frentic, easier to digest, more thoughtful than the previous installment, with a cute, quirky romance, and much less galaxy hopping. The humor is more subtle, the jokes have breathing room. A welcome change of pace.⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

I loved all four books of this "trilogy." So my question to all of you: Do I want to read Eoin Colfer's addition to the series?

bmsddk This is my favourite book of the 'trilogy'!! The toothpick scene is literature at its finest 😁 I didn't enjoy the fifth book much, but I'm glad to have read it once to satisfy the curiosity (as long as I pretend it is non-canon). 3y

Just a small gathering. 😜 It seems a large chunk of my collection is either blue or black. One of these days I think I'll arrange all my books by color just to see how it looks. I probably won't be able to leave it that way long though, because my brain wants them grouped by author and genre. #bookishproblems #nicestack 😸 (mostly read, 4 from TBR shelves)

DebinHawaii Great stacks! I love the color shelving idea but it would bug me too I think to break up my authors and sets. 💙📘 3y
JenniferShepard A few years ago I arranged my books by color, and it was quite a thing to behold. Needless to say, I couldn't find anything, and it destroyed the sense of order I had created in my personal library. 3y
