Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective AgencyКакво е общото между една мъртва котка един компютърен гений Електрически монах който вярва че светът е розов квантовата механика двестагодишен хронолог Самюъл Тейлър Коулридж поет и пицата Очевидно не е много докато частния детектив Дърк Джентли със странния си стил на работа не се заема д Is it an audacious thing to say that Mr Douglas Adams is hit or missYes Well audacious not reallyGood Here is a fun and I mean FUN book rife with what is absurd and comical in certain sciences that dictate what the world is I know my math teacher in high school was mad about him And it does seem as though there is an intended niche audience already built for this type of literature literary than say Piers Anthony but not character driven nor truly dearly dramatic There is much confusion and this is also part of its whimsical charm but the coming together seems so tight so like a mathematical euation solved and just done for although there is that infamous to be continued at its conclusion this is giving nothing away I'm caustic toward these post Lewis Carroll productions wasn't a rabid fan of Hitchhiker's for instance but I won't mind reading Dirk Gently #2 When that type of mood actually finds me
