Thinking about Life, the Universe and Everything
December 4, 2008

I am reading through five novels and one story by Douglas Adams, laughing out loud and alternately shaking, nodding and scratching my head.

The first book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the rest follow the same theme, if there is one.

I think I will eventually post some observations about this series, but first I want to check with my readers and friends, which, with any luck, just might turn out to be the same people.

Have you read the first novel, or the series?
What did you think?
How would you describe these novels?
What kind of mind would it take to produce such zany thoughts and plots?

Is anyone out there, or am I talking to empty cyberspace? Actually, whether cyberspace is empy or overcrowded is a point on which I understand experts from the planet Rupert diasgree vociferously.
The planet Rupert?! You have to read the book…

Enter your comments, please.
