CBee Howard the Duck 😂😂😂 I actually thought about that one. But then I remembered it kinda freaked me out 😂 2mo
vivastory I *almost* chose Hitchhikers Guide. Howard the Duck. I should rewatch 😂 2mo
RamsFan1963 @CBee @vivastory I'm not usually in favor of remaking my favorite movies, but I'd love to see Howard redone with today's CGI technology. Both Howard and the horrible aliens would be so much better. I'd want Lea Thompson and Tim Robbins in the remake, even if just cameos 2mo
vivastory I could see a HTD remake. Speaking of adaptations, I LOVE the Hitchhiker's version featuring Martin Freeman & Sam Rockwell 2mo
CBee @RamsFan1963 I would totally watch a remake! 2mo

Just finished the first book. Absolutely hilarious. Never read anyone that thinks so out-of-the-box as Adams. Can‘t believe it took me this long to read this! I‘ve been super stressed out with grad school but I‘m finally trying to take some time to read more for pleasure. It feels like the only thing I‘ve been reading lately is counseling manuals and textbooks.

I am loving this! I love the fantastical, easy-to-digest world that Adams is building. His prose keeps my heart light yet is very substantial. It's a very palatable book to unwind with after a huge period of stress for me. Thankful and excited to get more into this world.

Hilarious and entertaining, full of space lingo and a unique variety of settings. Definitely worth reading but I can't say there was anything exceptional about it. I really want to watch the movie now!

DisneyFan Oh I love this book. I‘m a super fan. I wonder if the movie tie in isn‘t as good as original book. 4mo

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is one of the most unique sci fi stories I have ever read as unlike most sci fi stories, it's not trying to tell a massive theme or being an idea of the future, it instead tells this bizarre and funny story that is sure to make you go “Wait what!”

One if my all time favourite books. It's one of the few that I actually like to re-read. It's wonderfully quirky, funny and clever at the same time.

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons.

🌟🌟🌟1/2 A crazy ride through the galaxy with some quirky folks from earth and other. It‘s absurd, silly, and brilliant in places. Marvin the android is my favorite hands down. There isn‘t any way to explain the book, just go with it, don‘t overthink it you‘ll have more fun. And don‘t forget your towel.

A hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy is a book about a survivor of earth's destruction's unwilling journey to discover outer space and the true purpose of our planet. Along the way he gets a guidebook to everything in the galaxy which gives the book its name.

If you like spacefaring science fiction novels or novels that explore humorous as well as philosophical topics, then you will adore this novel.

I give this novel a solid 9/10

Tristan.Urquhart A main theme in this book is the unknown, which appears in the novel as answers without question or questions without answers and how our humanity impedes us from understanding everything. 9mo
MissYaremcio Awesome work Tristan! Such a classic! 6/6 9mo

#deweysreadathon Hours 1-3. I've been laying in bed, burrowed under the covers, listening to Stephen Fry's brilliant narration. It's a fun book to start with, but he just takes it to a whole other level.

Thank you @Roary47 and @Littlewolf1 for #roaringwolf September Sci-Fi month. This is the second book now that I finally got around to reading because of your challenge! Again like book 1984 this one has been on my shelf to read for many many years and just never have read it until now! This is for Warpspeed prompt.

Why did I take so long to read this book 📖 🤷🏻‍♀️

What can I say about this that hasn't been said many times before? If you've read it, you know what magic it contains, if you haven't, what are you waiting on? Wonderfully droll and witty, I read this the first time at 17, and now 41 years later (ugh), it remains as delightfully fun as the first time.

I enjoyed tagged book (Hitchhikers Guide) - 4/5 stars - it was reminiscent of Monty Python type humor/observations which I love, one star off due to the joke/satire/observations going on too long - started to watch the movie - but had to give that a hard pass -

🎧 I finished the Stephen Fry version early this morning and decided I still love it!! Arthur Dent & Ford Prefect are my kinda funny!! I bought the B&N exclusive hardcover awhile ago for my shelf & I love Stephen Fry‘s narration. The beginning when Dent is told the plans were on file for a month was my first laugh when the Earth was told those plans had been on file also. Quirky, funny, 42. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

peanutnine I love this book. I would love to reread it soon, maybe I'll try the audiobook this time 🙂 1y

The narrators voice really irritated me on this audiobook so maybe why I didn‘t really enjoy it. I found parts of it quite funny but overall I just wasn‘t really into it and it‘s not my type of thing
