Il volume contiene il ciclo completo inaugurato dalla Guida galattica per gli autostoppisti che comprende Il ristorante al termine dell'universo La vita l'universo e tutto uanto Addio e grazie per tutto il pesce più un racconto inedito OK Where do I start with this one It's a doozyLet's first of all say that I think this is one of the best uses of the English language It's right up there with well anything else I mean just read the sentences He is a lot like Tolkien in that he makes the words themselves the art But where Tolkien will take English and make it into a lush broad canvas Mr Adams turns English into a plaything Let's put my last sentence another way The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy is the literary euivalent of juggling chainsaws You read it through the first time and you have no freaking clue how he did that with those words OK we got that out of the way How bout the story now Sure that sounds good NickThere is no plot For all of you who need one I'm very very sory But frankly it's better that way Life doesn't have a plot right You just sort of muddle through your week doing the best you can with what Life can throw at you Well that's the point with this He takes the most regular guy the guy you'd like to hang out with someone decent that you can introduce to your sister And then Adams throws him out into space and just sees what happensCertain parts of this book especially at the beginning are an adaptation of the BBC Radio programme aired in 1977 which was also written by Douglas Adams And he wrote H2G2 episodically but also with no clear goal in mind So when his characters come to a problem Adams had no idea what would happen to them until he wrote the solution Some rather large pieces of the story stuck in H2G2 this way This is most true in the earlier books in the Trilgy yes it's five books in a series; The trilogy is inaccurately named when the writing is fresher and betterBut the best part of H2G2 and all of DNA's books frankly even Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is his worldview Basically it's all about taking what life gives you with patience humor and tea Yes he was an Atheist Yes I'm a Christian whose favorite thinkerwriterguy was an Atheist Calm down calm down and he disliked people using ideas and beliefs as a crutch This is the part where it's hard to really write a coherent review for me because so many loved ones of mine hi Mom and Dad would see this as a Very Bad Idea So why don't you shoot me an email and we can have a discussion about it Maybe sit down and have some coffee and some nice nosh and chat You'll get and better ideas out of me that way Anyways I've just lost my train of thought so I'll just say you'll love the part about the Vogon poetry And H2G2 is an inaccurately named trilogy because it is composed of five books I recommend reading them all at once even though there's no plot and things in one book will sometimes contradict things in another Anyways this trilogy is still one of my favorites

The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide Five Complete Novels and One StoryUna gigantesca autostrada cosmica sta per essere costruita dalle parti del sistema solare E una banale diramazione deve essere aperta proprio dove ora c'è la terra Di conseguenza uel vecchio e inutile pianeta va rimosso Lo viene a saper It's that book you pick up and feel obligated to love if only to escape grievous fan persecution Well Here goes Let's start with the humour Yes it's everything that humour should be For a while you are oh so amused and impressedbut then you weary of being so amused Akin to being kept on the edge of your seat for a good few hours something's going to get sore It's just such a strain I skipped ten or so pages near the middle but I'm sure those ten pages were like the rest of the book terribly witty and sickeningly cleverThe plot takes twists likeah what's a good analogy A snake on LSD That'll do Don't get me wrong they're good twists and Adams is admittedly superb at making the inherently illogical seem orderly and precise but they just don't stop coming And after a while the worst happens and the reader just stops caring I can see why this book has achieved its cult status It deserves its cult status in many ways There are moments of startling originality that knock you back and spin your world to a crazy new angle but when the whole book is all but filled with these moments the crazy new angle begins to make you dizzy and irritated At the end I'm still feeling oh so amused and impressed but also oh so relieved I can stop
