So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish - Douglas Adams TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! I shouldn't have started reading this all day long

Well, I really liked the first hitchhiker’s guide, a very nice comedy indeed. Arthur Dent who doesn't want his house to be demolished by bulldozers, Vogons’ ship and their poems which nobody likes to hear and it works like a penalty, Ford Prefect living in earth for many years and no one seemed to know of it, their escape from soon -to be destroyed earth for the galactic bypass, their funny talks, some exact scientific facts (rarely), their rescue by another stolen alien ship in the open space etc etc.

All of them were very good, funny, comical and enjoyable to read. OK! But how about the sequels??? #2 and #3 were of course not comparable with the leader. But generally they are worth reading only for a slight time killing. Not educational that’s for sure. You cannot learn some science out of them. The plots not bad.

And #4 look at a short passage.
For a moment he felt good about this. A moment or two later he felt bad about feeling good about it. Then he felt good about feeling bad about feeling good about it and, satisfied, drove on into the night.

You call it a comedy? LIKE HELL! K k a gal of 10 can laugh after reading this. But expect no more! It’s just a game of words with no logical “educational” comedy (watch Mr Bean series instead it’s better!). The #4 is full of “bullshit-cowshit-humanshit-and-camelshit”-type phrases!!)))) I attribute it to the good of the book marketologists who tried well for #4 to come to light.

Besides they say if while reading a book you can’t create a “movie” of the book in your imagination (well, it depends on imagination too or however mature it is for the book, but let’s disregard it) the book is at least not for you. And this damned #4 book is at least not for me!)) And yes, there ARE bad books!

And now I’m going back to the old good hard Sci-Fi. oh, yea, come to Papa!))))
