"DOUGLAS ADAMS IS A TERRIFIC SATIRIST."--The Washington Post Book WorldFacing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability--and desperately in search of a place to eat.Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself.Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker's Guide deleted the term "Future Perfect" from its pages, since it was discovered not to be!"What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams' sardonically silly eyes."--Detroit Free Press

4.0 The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #2)
Martin Freeman is certainly one of the wonders of the world! I absolutely loved listening to this on my daily work commute, and I didn't even notice traffic! The story itself is deceptively light and ridiculous, but he just made it so much better! Not only did he have a distinguishable "voice" for e...

3.0 Parking Cars - what else does one do in a car park
Well, this is annoying. Having just arrived back from Europe, and having travelled half way around a world you could say that I now have the holiday hangover – Jet Lag. Basically I have had about 10 hours sleep in total over the past four days, namely because I go to sleep and suddenly an hour later...

2.0 The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
I didn't like it very much. Some parts are boring and meaningless (yes even for a meaningless story like this one), but still you can get a spark of joy in some places.

4.5 A strong (but not strong enough?) follow-up to Adams' masterpiece.
If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with a breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe? I think in the past, I've enjoyed The Restaurant at the End of the Universe more than this time, but I'm not sure why. Which is not to say that I didn...

3.5 Die verrückte Weltraumgeschichte geht weiter
Da ich die Teile zwei, drei und vier der 'Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis'-Reihe in einem Schwupps durchgelesen habe und an dieser Stelle nicht unbedingt alles auseinanderdröseln will und kann, was sich in meinem Kopf so angesammelt hat, mache ich an dieser Stelle einfach mal eine dreifach-Rezi, das ...
