Before I get into this review, I have something super important to tell everyone! Th Answer to the Great Question of Life, the Universe and Everything is.... 42! No joke that is seriously the answer. How does the answer make sense? We'll you'll just have to read the book and find out! Just kidding you don't find out in this book :/ I'm hoping that it'll explain itself as the series continues though :DNikki, this book seem right up your alley. Why doesn't it have 5 stars? Well because to me the book was kind if pointless. It was good. Just pointless. There doesn't seem to be a major issue, there wasn't really any climax and without a major issue there wasn't really an ending either. They were like hey wanna stop by the restaurant and the end of the universe for a bite to eat? By then Arthur Dent is sort if getting used to the whole weird alien stuff and is just like sure I'm a bit peckish.The book itself was quite funny and put things in a different light. It made me think of things in in ways I never would've with out the book. (Wether that's a good or a bad think I'm not too sure haha) If the sequels give this book meaning then I might recommend this series to others. It was talked about very highly by a couple friends of mine but so far I can't really understand where that praise is coming from.
