Blew my expectations away.

Colfer is really adept at channeling Adams' voice and style (which must be exhausting). He is-thankfully-a tad lighter in overall mood than Adams' dark, brooding 5th novel. This book is brilliant-head and shoulders above most everything else out there-but there was only...
Colfer is really adept at channeling Adams' voice and style (which must be exhausting). He is-thankfully-a tad lighter in overall mood than Adams' dark, brooding 5th novel. This book is brilliant-head and shoulders above most everything else out there-but there was only one Douglas Adams. Colfer himself has said as much. Adams was a scientist disguised as a writer Colfer is definitely a very, very gifted and brilliant writer-but not scientist material. I can't think of anyone else who could have captured Adams' essence better. Even the tempo is astonishingly Douglas-ish. His vicious satire is absolutely spot-on, though with something one might say resembles a bit more of a silver lining.
In the end a very worthy book that blends together into the previous storyline astonishingly well.

And another thing - I wouldn't read it a second time

I REALLY wanted to like this book, as I had enjoyed the previous ones (the first 3 were the best) and liked the original radio series when it was broadcast by NPR in the early 1980's, and the extended radio series of a few years ago. It never took off for me. I never ...
I REALLY wanted to like this book, as I had enjoyed the previous ones (the first 3 were the best) and liked the original radio series when it was broadcast by NPR in the early 1980's, and the extended radio series of a few years ago. It never took off for me. I never laughed out loud while reading it, and found it a bit of a chore to finish.

I've had no previous experience with Eoin Colfer, so I had no bias at the start, and I did not read other reviews before purchasing.

    Not bad but not good either

    Good reading during a long power out
    I read the hitchhikers guide series back in middle school and loved it. Over a decade later I dont know if my sense of humor has matured or if colfer just isnt as good as adams. Maybe if this was just a book in the hitchhiker style it would have been a three star or more but i think its a bit of a shameful addition to the series.
