I'm on the third book of this series right now and I was planning on just reviewing the entire thing as a whole but I'm starting to forget the beginning so I'm just going to review as I go. This book was incredibly entertaining. Douglas Adams has this wry almost dry ironic humor that really just pushes all the right buttons while still being complex and mad scientist intelligent. It makes you look at the world (and the Universe) differently.
I will say this- I thought I knew what I was getting into when I started this book but I had no idea. It's every bit as spellbinding as it claims to be and showcases some of the strongest sibling bonds I've encountered in a book. My only qualm would be a spoiler I'll put in the comments. If you are looking for a bit of magic and illusion bordering on deception coupled with lush storytelling this is the book for you.
