Better than the first book This has funny moments and I just found myself laughing out loud than when I was reading the first book I guess it was by design Douglas Adams had to explain fully his milieu for the series Since he did that in the first book, his characters now have the whole universe to play around for themselves So, they just don t hop and hop from one planet to another but also in this one, enjoy a time travel They went to a restaurant at the end of the universe Prior to my reading of this book, I thought that the restaurant is located at the end or the edge of the universe But I was fascinated to learn that while eating steak from the meat of a talking animal , you could watch the end or the death of the universe Sorry for the spoiler but it s found in the first half of the book and there are other interesting scenes in the There is theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened Arthur Dent and his companions went through some bizarre and inexplicable adventures after the Earth got blown to bits by Vogons in the opening sequence of the series They were probably too close to making sense of their situation, because Douglas Adams decided to turn it all around for the sequel.
Is is not an easy claim to make that the second Hitchhiker book is better than the previous one, since there was nothing wrong with the first one Yet, for various reasons, I ended up reading it faster and enjoying it It may be the fact that there is actually a plot, like search Man Am Vormittag Schon Sechs Unwahrscheinliche Dinge Erlebt Und Erledigt Hat Warum Das Ganze Dann Nicht Mit Einer Jause Im Milliways, Dem Restaurant Am Ende Des Universums, Abrunden Genau Das Hat Die Besatzung Des Sternenschiffs Herz Aus Gold Vor W Re Da Nicht Der Missliche Umstand, Zun Chst Den Vogonen Entkommen Zu M Ssen, Irgendwie Zu Vermeiden, Zum Belsten Planeten Der Galaxie Verschleppt Zu Werden, Und Einem Raumschiff Beizubringen, Wie Man Eine Anst Ndige Tasse Tee Zubereitet Und Hat Berhaupt Þ The Restaurant at the End of the Universe à Download by è Douglas Adams Irgendwer Einen Tisch Reserviert Band Der F Nfteiligen Trilogie Poor Marvin I m glad our heroes are exploring space and time but poor Marvin Had I read this I couldn t recall I knew I d seen the old tv version, but I wasn t sure I d actually read the book, so I read it And why not It s a hell of a good book, and I d do it again The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is kind of the continuing adventures of Arthur Dent Honestly, while he s a focal point of book one, he doesn t factor into the sequel as much This is about Zaphod Beeblebrox and Ford Perfect, as well as the kitchen sink s worth of whatever zany ideas Douglas Adams wanted to throw into the works I say zany ideas as if they are a haphazard, careless collection of ramblings, but Adams does actually stay on topic for much of the time That topic is humanity s futility We re a go nowhere race going nowhere fast Adams basically says I was talking to a friend of mine the other day, when he asked me for a book recommendation Nothing too long, he said Or too factual My brain starting racing Tolstoy Much too long Bill Bryson Much too factual The news I suggested No, no, he said A book My mind kept racing through titles Ah, I ve got it I said finally Try The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy series They are wholly remarkable books This brief conversation encapsulates why I enjoy these books so much They re well written, thoughtful, funny, short, and immensely readable They are the sorts of book you can recommend to nearly anyone, the sorts of books that turn illiterates into book enthusiasts It s hard to think of something effortlessly pleasant.
× The Restaurant at the End of the Universe ô It must be nice, mused Ford Prefect thoughtfully, to know what you re for I don t have the slightest idea what I m for Most sentient beings don t But you, he continued, turning to Arthur and Trillian You know Part of finding the answer to the Ultimate Question I m sure that s comforting at times You mean the 42 business asked Arthur What asked Zaphod s left head incredulously, while his right head rolled its eyes You mean you fell for that The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons
