Douglas Adams The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Whether it’s a movie, comic book or book, I’ve never been a fan of space travel and science fiction. Star Wars or Aliens have never appealed to my taste. I definitely preferred the typical Lord of the Rings fantasy. One exception is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. And I don’t mean a series or a movie in this case, but the first and original trilogy in five volumes by Douglas Adams. This humorous novel was so funny and absurd that I found it hard to tear myself away from it. I also reached for the next volumes immediately. And I found it quite late. All thanks to my wife, who is a fan of the series and said that I must also read. She was absolutely right! It’s hard not to like Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect and cheer them on as they travel through the universe. Though I liked Marvin the most of all the heroes, a job with perpetual depression. With a clear conscience, I recommend this position to everyone and see for yourself what a regular towel can do. And remember – 42!
