For all you Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans -- win and wear the ultimate answer

 

Why 42?

Forty-two is the answer to life, the universe and everything, in Douglas Adams’s masterpiece, a surreal and goofy romp through the universe.

 

Enter now!

 

Why giveaway this?

Because I think that fans of HHGTTG will also enjoy my new book, Alpha Max: An Existential Romp through an Absurd Multiverse. Now, I’m not saying Alpha Max is as funny HHGTTG, because that’s a pretty high bar.

 

However, I have some earlier reviewers compare this work to that of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and also Kurt Vonnegut. The winner will also receive a signed, first edition copy of my new book!

Doctor Cerberus
Doctor Cerberus - Roberto Aquirre-sacasa,Adam Arkin,Simon Helberg,JoBeth Williams This is about a boy who's figuring himself out. It's about him being gay but also about many other things to do with growing up. There's a lot of family interaction. Many parts are like one of those 30 minute family sitcom type tv shows. Other parts go a little deeper.

Exegisti monumentum...aerem perennius?
Papuga Flauberta - Julian Barnes,Adam Szymanowski "Sześciu mężczyzn pochodzących z Afryki grało w kule pod pomnikiem Flauberta." Już w pierwszym zdaniu Barnes oddaje obojętność rodzinnego miasta wobec Flauberta: on nie cierpiał jego mieszczańskości, ono odpłaciło mu się tym samym za jego antymieszczańskość. Mimo to doczekał się w nim pomnika. Barnes liczy pomniki Flauberta we Francji: poza tym w Rouen dwa inne - w nie najlepszym stanie, bo z betonu - stoją w Trouville i Barentin. To i tak wiele, bo Flaubert chciał się rozpłynąć, nie zostawić po sobie żadnych śladów.(...)

Unnatural Causes
Unnatural Causes - P.D. James

Honestly this whole book felt like a waste of time. The only reason why I am giving it two stars is I liked how James described the location of the murders and we get into Dalgliesh's family history more. 

 

"Unnatural Causes" follows Adam Dalgliesh as he returns to Suffolk to visit his aunt Jane. I maybe smiled at her name and had thoughts of Miss Marple dancing in my head. Adam's visit though is interrupted by a local writing group coming to call and then an Inspector Reckless interrupting to tell them that one of their own, Maurice Seton, was found dead and missing his hands. James takes you through all of the characters in this one, Adam, Sylvia Kedge, Maurice's secretary who is handicapped, Maurice's half brother and only heir, Digby Seton, Oliver Latham who is a critic, Celia Calthrop and her niece, Elizabeth.I am probably forgetting someone. We also have to deal with Adam and his tedious relationship and where is it going next throughout this one.

 

Honestly the description of Suffolk was great, I liked hearing things via Adam's third person point of view and other than that, this book dragged. I just didn't care about what was going on after a while. When the action moves from Suffolk things became even slower. 

 

I have to say the ending was lackluster. The killer is revealed and I maybe went really? We then get the killer's taped confession that goes on and on for dozens of pages. I felt bored and things can be wrapped up by saying they felt insulted so they just went about murdering everyone they could.

This book dragged and the taped confession was laughably bad. And I don't know killing people cause of a nightgown choice? I went what a few times.
