Publisher's Summary

It's not just a trilogy any more. In the fifth book of this popular series, Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, and immediately all hell breaks loose. In short, it's up to him to save the world from total multi-dimensional obliteration, the Guide from a hostile alien takeover, and the daughter he never knew he had from herself. A tall order, to say the least. And one he's really not up to, thank you very much.


What the Critics Say

"Douglas Adams is a terrific satirist....He is anything but harmless." (The Washington Post Book World)
"Hitchhiker fans rejoice!...[Here's] more of the same zany nonsensical mayhem." (The New York Times Book Review)

Having loved Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it's pretty obvious that only the first book is the hit. The rest are just 'eh'. There are funny moments sprinkled in, but Mostly Harmless really has nothing going on for any good reason.

This is a major departure from the style you'd expect from this series and on top of that, it doesn't offer anything to advance our characters storylines other than a dumb ending for the sake of an ending.

Martin Freeman is awesome though. I really wish he'd narrate more books.

The end....

Great story, however, was a little disappointed in the way it ended. so I guess I'm going on to the next book, AND ANOTHER THING.
