    The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes I knew this to be true and yet I have always felt a need to search for the truth that nebulous ill treated creature Adams has always been to me to be a welcome companion in tha

    In my experience readers either love Adams' books or uickly put them down I for example uite literally worship the words Adams puts on the page and have read the Hitchhiker's Trilogy so many times that I have large tracts of it memorized But both my wife and father couldn't get past book one the former because she found it too silly and the latter because he found the writing to be about the author's personality than plo

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

An Zaphod's girlfriend formally Tricia McMillan whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin a paranoid brilliant and chronically depressed robot; Veet Voojagig a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years Please before anything DON T PANIC This review is harmless well mostly harmlessI think that one of the things that one has to keep in mind while reading this book is that it was written in 1979 Having this important factor in perspective it s uite astonishing the vision of Douglas Adams the author presenting a lot of visionary elements starting with the very book inside the book I mean The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy since it s presented as an electronic book which now it s a very common way to read a lot of books now Also he mentioned stuff like touch sensitive screens that yet again it s now something introduced in our daily lives Science Fiction the good science fiction is defined by being visionary in the moment to be published and a fact years later Just like Verne s work predicting events like space rockets and nuclear submarines The President of the Universe holds no real power His sole purpose is to take attention away from where the power truly exists Obviously beside the mesmering tecnology stuff that he predicted the signature style here is his remarkable sense of humor SMART sense of humor In literature and pop culture in general there were been unforgettable examples of computers like the cold HAL from 2001 A Space Odyssey and the noble KITT from Knight Rider also robots like the loyal R2 D2 from Star Wars and the logical robots from I Robot short story collection However nothing of that can prepare you to the experience of meeting Eddie the Main Computer of the Heart of Gold spaceship or Marvin the Paranoid Android This is one of the best traits of Douglas Adams wit in the development of artificial intelligence I wasn t surprised since some months ago I read Shada by Gareth Roberts but based on the Doctor Who s unaired script written by Douglas Adams where you find another priceless example of a computer with a personality that only Adams is able to develop You laugh and laugh with them BUT not only because they s funny but also they are truly logical as artifical intelligences in their way to react to situations Adams impact of how presenting artificial intelligence can be found too in another novel of Doctor Who Festival of Death by Jonathan Morris where the author showed how well he learned Adams lessons Resistance is useless I believe that Douglas Adams involvement in the production of the iconic British sci fi TV series Doctor Who as script editor and writer of three stories it was fated since I found remarkable similarities on the premises of both works this novel and the TV series Both has a peculiar fellow who stole certain machine and along with companions is travelling around So it wouldn t a surprise that he got some inspiration since Doctor Who was widely known since 1963 specially on its native country England Of course his participation on another British TV institution like Monty Python s Flying Circus was a relevant point for Adams to explode his humoristic potential To boldly split infinitives that no man had split before It s possible that people unfamiliar with Adams work could think that since this is a novel with comedy they could think that it can t be a serious science fiction book However the brilliance of this novel is its capacity of offering smart humor while using scientific concepts like the theory of faster than light objects Even you won t be able to fight against his priceless explanation behind the UFOs sightingsWithout spoiling anything I think that my only reason of getting off a star in my rating of this great novel was its lacking a proper closure I understand that this the first book in a trilogy of five books yes you read correctly it wasn t a mistake so the adventures and mysteries will continue in the second book The Restaurant at the End of the Universe However it was uite unsettling when you are having the time of your life reading it and the book just stopped to have words I describe it like that since I didn t feel an ending It was indeed just like the impossibility of not finding words in the book What I can give to Adams is that that was uite improbable but in my opinion uite unlikely way to just ending this book Certainly I want to read the rest of this great TRILOGY of FIVE books Yes yet again you read well and it isn t a mistake
