Standing at 14hours for #24B4Monday
Managed to complete the Chalk Man for #TheReadingRush and decided to change it up a bit and threw in Mostly Harmless for a bit of humour. Hopefully it will be my seventh book for #TheReadingRush
“the Hitch-Hiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects. First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words #DONTPANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.”
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? 😬
I loved it! I think it was the perfect crazy end to a perfect crazy series. Yes there's a little repetition in some jokes but I didn't think it was too much. I do wonder what ever happened to Fenchurch ... And I missed Marvin but otherwise I really loved it!
Happy Towel Day! I was inspired to draw this after seeing @wanderinglynn ‘s post, but I‘ve been a big fan of Hitchhiker‘s Guide since I was twelve and I knew I had to commemorate this day somehow! Note the towel at Ford‘s back as he drags Arthur off to some crazy new adventure! #towelday #hitchhikersguide #hitchhikersguidetothegalaxy #douglasadams
Although I had a rocky relationship with the first third of this third book in a five book trilogy, the second and third thirds were smoother and less jarring. I still could have done without "bistromathics", but felt Arthur was well-handled, and his character somewhat developed beyond "clueless tea-deficient ape descendant". Trillian was underused, but less so than in the previous books. All in all, I didn't stray too far from interested: 4?
Faith and perseverance rewarded - after about 60 pages of feeling "meh", the story starts to coalesce into some sort of oxymoronic vague-coherence and I'm engaged in the following 40 pages. Half way through, so let's hope Adams stays on track for the remainder! ☹?☹
