"Cancer, alternatively known by its technical name - ‘that thing that happens to other people’, is no laughing matter. Life, on the other hand - that thing that happens to most people, certainly is". From its questionably optimistic opening statement to its long lingering closing line, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to Cancer' follows one man's mission to out-laugh life and outlive cancer. Jam-packed with original quotes, laced with sarcasm, sprinkled with witticisms and coated in a thick layer of cynicism, it is more than just a glimpse into the mind and mindset of one hopeful pessimist; it is a call to reevaluate our attitude towards life's greatest and smallest challenges. It is a personal examination of universal experiences, and an attempt to find life lessons in life's less enjoyable moments. But above all, it's hilarious, and that's what really matters.
