The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (Dirk Gently Series #2) by Douglas Adams

When a passenger check-in desk at London's Heathrow Airport disappears in a ball of orange flame, the explosion is deemed an act of God. But which god, wonders holistic detective Dirk Gently? What god would be hanging around Heathrow trying to catch the 3:37 to Oslo? And what has this to do with Dirk's latest--and late-- client, found only this morning with his head revolving atop the hit record "Hot Potato"? Amid the hostile attentions of a stray eagle and the trauma of a very dirty refrigerator, super-sleuth Dirk Gently will once again solve the mysteries of the universe...

Even better than the first one. Despite other reviews this book is completely original and so funny that you may die of suffication. Make sure you read them in order. If you already read this take a look at The Salmon of Doubt (the unfinished 3rd book with some other stories).

I have to admit, before praising The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul, that I wasn't too thrilled with The Holistic Detective Agency, but the circumstances surrounding my reading of that book may have contributed some. Regardless, I was absolutely entralled with Dirk Gently #2. I simply loved the irony, ridiculous situations, and raw humour. Every so often I kept thinking to myself 'How does Adams come up with such outrageous stuff?' I love to be delightfully shocked, and The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul has plenty of events to be delightfully shocked about.

"The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul" is another masterpiece by Douglas Adams, master of science fiction comedy; an instant favorite for me, seeing that I enjoyed the Hitchhiker's Guide series so much. The main character, Dirk Gently was, in my view, more likable than, say, Ford Prefect, the humanoid from Betelgeuse or Marvin the Paranoid Android. There characters were funny, but Dirk Gently had a more eccentric personality, which I liked. Most of the story is centered on Norse gods, and Dirk ends up going to Valhalla. Like any other Douglas Adams book, the storyline is engrossing, and is peppered with hilarious bits of British humor. I recommend this book for people who have never heard for Douglas Adams, and fans alike. That's if they haven't read it of course. It's a great, fun, light read and I would definitely give it a 5 out of 5.
