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!
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.
Check out our discussion about it on my podcast Mind Duck Books: https://bit.ly/3EFHYMk
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
The middle-aged me is still every bit as delighted by this science fiction comedy as the teen me was shortly after its publication. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy
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 📖 🤷🏻♀️
My Barnes and Noble recipe has the most perfectly nerdy total! I couldn't have managed this if I tried.
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.
1st book finished for #AnyWayYouReadathon @kimmypete1 @Eggbeater @MidnightBookGirl
and #SuperSeptember readathon @Andrew65 @EadieB
New mask since Nevada effed it up and we are wearing masks again. Kicking it Douglas Adams style.
After taking years to finally get around to reading this book, it‘s only OK, especially when you already know most of the jokes.
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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Irreverent, fun and completely crazy. The audio by Stephen Fry is pure joy!
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
